Aviation Forum soaring with enthusiasm
Our brand new Aviation Photography Forum is quickly gathering amazing images and responses. The forum is one of the first of the new gathering spots for Nikonians with specific photography interests being unveiled as part of our 8th Anniversary Celebrations.
We've already seen a combination of airshow related images, historical classics and commercial aircraft being shared and as the forum participants get to know each other the next step will be an exchange of shooting tips and even informal gatherings of Nikonians at airshow events in their regions.
The initial postings have already stepped deep into technical issues, such as the question from Mike Pastore (Aviatorbumm), who is already producing amazing air-to-air shots, looking for tips on how to improve them. Some of Mike's questions include:
"How does one deal with shadow issues...where to you position the sunlight...what time of day is best for air to air work from a lighting standpoint?
Other issues already being discussed include -- "Red Bull Air Race - Hints & Tips?" --- and an invitation for those of you who think you can recognize anything that flies.
This will be an interesting "challenge" discussion sure to test your knowledge of aircraft recognition. Our thanks to Julian Walley (jules) for his open challenge. To add to the discussion-- fly over to the Aviation Photography forum and let us know if you can ID the two aircraft on the left. Post your replies in the discussion started by jules.
