Change-Up: Air Show in B&W

| | TrackBacks (0)
Another dreary Press Preview Day for the RI Air National Guard Air Show. Rather than live with low-contrast color photos, I decided to challenge myself and convert the best to B&W.

I keep re-learning this lesson - even with a D2 and 8 fps, which is the fastest camera I've ever owned to date, anticipation timing is still required. The CAM2000 AF system on the D2 is also pretty infallible, but if you're in the wrong mode for the subject at hand (fast speed, somewhat unpredictable flight path) then all that technology means nothing. It still boils down to the photographer knowing the equipment *and* thinking ahead to maximize the chances for a good frame.
