Hi all,
I am going to an airshow in a couple of weeks and as it is my first time I wanted to see if anyone had any tips. I will be using a Nikon F80 with a 28-105 for ground shots and a an 80-200 2.8 ED, Tamron 2X Pro teleconverter and monopod for aerial shots.
Does this sound reasonable? What's the best type/speed film to use? shooting technique? metering method when shooting airborne planes, etc. I want to get an idea of what to expect... I guess it's a good idea to try and get a program of events before the day. Any help is appreciated.
