Re: Abbotsford Airshow 2016

Looks like you had to shoot in some very low lighting. Haven't faced that challenge yet. Aren't the Skyhawks Parachute Team impressive?

Re: Abbotsford Airshow 2016

I've been to Abbotsford in the past, absolutely a top shelf event! Every model airplane nut should see a real airshow in my opinion!
Thanks for the pictures!

Re: Abbotsford Airshow 2016

I went to an R/C event about an hour from home back in 2008 to practice shooting fast moving targets in preparation for some vintage Can Am racing I intended to attend the next weekend. I spent a bit of time talking to one of the organizers of the event & later shared my photos with him which got me invited to another event later that season. That led to more & more events & more & more practice. It has also led me back to the hobby (building & flying) which I got into in 59, out of around 84 when I lost my flying field & got serious about photography. Shooting moving targets takes practice & knowing how to set up your camera properly.
If you're a MAAC member you should have received the May issue of MAC Magazine which has my article on how I set up my gear etc (there are other opinions on set up, I'm just sharing my way of doing it) & if not you can download it from the MAAC web site but you still need to practice. The lack of full scale events in the area is why I really like having a good variety of Fun Fly's throughout the summer to help me get better at it.
