Hi everyone, I am a long time aviation enthusiast (started at the age of 4 when my father worked at LHR for AI and I got to sit in the pilot seat of the first AI's first 747) as well as a photography enthusiast. Just recently, I decided to marry the two hobbies together and start doing aviation photography.
I live in the Toronto area, and their are some prime locations around YYZ for taking pictures that I have been frequenting. I have been able to capture some decent shots, but I have a question regarding technique.
I have been mostly panning/following the planes as they approach and pass by me. But I was wondering if it is better to pick a spot to focus on and wait for the planes to enter that spot and then take a burst of shots, or is the panning method the preferred method to capture the planes in flight.
I realize that panning with a slower shutter speed will get "motion" results, but I'm also looking to capture shots of the planes during a landing approach or after take off where trying to portray motion against a plain blue sky is somewhat hard to do.
