Life in Fort Wayne is good - but the weather here can be a bit of a bummer, especially in the winter / early spring. And, to make matters worse, I bought a Digital Rebel in February, right in the heart of the "crummy weather season" here. We affectionately call it Fort Rain during times like this. But I wasn't about to stay home.
I played with panning, and invested in an IS
lens so I could get every bit of shutter speed possible. And, even on dreary overcast (and even rainy!) days I've been able to take some halfway decent shots. In my humble opinion, the IS
lens saved my butt. Without it, I would have required long exposures, which just aren't possible on aircraft in motion.
Here's a quick look at some of my rotten weather shots:
Someone told me on here to ALWAYS shoot at ISO 100, which I do. It seems to work well for me. And don't let anyone tell you that you cannot do panning with an IS
