This month we will test our ability to photograph flying objects. We have two events scheduled, Plano balloon fest & the Alliance Air Show. Fast flying birds would also be a challenge.
We will need a reasonably good telephoto lens in the 200 mm to 500 mm (or more) equivalent range. The smaller frame APS-c cameras will be a big help.
To properly blur the propellers you will need to shoot around 1/60th of a second. This will test our panning capabilities.
This meeting will kick off with a presentation and discussion of HDR photography needed for next months "Holiday Lights" theme.
Please post your images to "201311 Flying Objects". All images should be RGB jpgs with 2000 pixels on the longest side with 50% compression.
Results from prior meetings may be found at "The Complete Photographer Results".
Directions to Heritage Farmstead Schoolhouse can be found here.
