Hi Guys

So I'm an amateur photographer, proficient at portrait, landscape, travel and venturing into Aviation photography to merge my hobbies of photography and big shiny jets Big grin

I'm spending the weekend at LHR in April and would appreciate any tips (on the photography aspect).

I have a Nikon D80 which I'll be using with a Tamron 70-300mm lens.

Are there any hard and fast rules for aperture/shutter speed with aviation photography? The last couple of times I've tried I've been relatively disappointed with my results.

All help gratefully appreciated!

Martin

There are a few threads on this topic. (Just do a quick search)

I shoot in AV priority (f6.3 to f8). I try to keep my ISO as low as possible. As long as my shutter speed is fast enough.



~its a JEEP thang~

Quoting Mdfernott (Thread starter):

Most of the basic fundamentals will be in play here. First and foremost get the sun in the right place (directly behind you and preferably low). If you are shooting hand held I would set my ISO around 160 or lower if you keep it real still. Aperture I would start at F8 and work from there. Shutter will be up to you. If you can hold that camera still 640th will be a good starting point. I have been leaving my exposure comp at zero lately since I have been shooting in nice pleasing sun and if I get the right shutter and aperture the exposure has been dead on. Set your white balance to sunlight (providing you have sun) I shoot Nikon like you do and have got better results by also setting the WB at -1 to warm it up a little. This combats the blue cast you can get sometime. I would also search this av-photo theads, plenty of great advice here.
