My blog to share my experiences as I learn and experiment with photography.
Some more photos of the Leuchers airshow. As the day progressed the clouds rolled in and the smoke from the displays started to make the sky a bit cloudy and dirty as can be seen on some photos as the clarity drops of the display photos.

I miss going to airshows, this year I was able to visit Leuchers in Scotland. Here some tasters of what’s to come. I have a lot of photos to work through and will be sharing a few posts of airshow photos.
As I intend to go again in the future this day was a recce for hopefully next year. I won’t be standing with the crowd again as you can see the sun is on the other side of the aircrafts. Not great for photos, next time I’ll stand on the other side of the airfield. I found that if you stand away from spectator area you can get closer to the aircrafts as they turn to do another manuever. I was with my family and this is part of the reason the photos were taken from this location. Have a look on Google maps of the site you will be visiting and where possible locations you can stand. You don’t have to be right next to the airfield. A mile or two away will still give you good photos with bigger lenses.
I was using my Canon 7D with my Canon 70-200mm L F2.8 IS II and Canon 300mm L F2.8 and at time added my Canon extenders x1.4 or x2. Shutter speed was 400ms and set to AI Servo to help with the speed.

This photo was taken at 1/2500sec, look at the effect the tip of the prop spinning causes.
There will be more to follow of my day out at Leuchers.
