I was completely taken by surprised on Christmas and was given a new Canon XSi camera with a 75-300 mm lenses, it's my very first DSLR camera. I went to the McClellan Palomar Airport in Northern San Diego County and took some pictures anticipating the usual United Express/Skywest Airlines flight from Los Angeles. I was hoping some of you seasoned aviation photographers perhaps with the same type of equipment would be wiling to help me out. Here is my shot of the Embraer 120: (hopefully I am not violating any A.net regulations by attaching this)
Having taken this with a low lighting condition, what should I have done? It seems a bit blurry, would I be able to make it look "Airlines worthy" with some Photoshopping? I had taken it in the "sport" mode. What are the optimal settings for snapping shots of aircraft?
