I was able to get in 30 minutes of sunset practice with my new NIkon 80-400 VR AF-S. The Cirrus shot was 400mm at 1/40th. and the Extra on the taxiway was 1/30th. I think I have a keeper!

Playing around with my just delivered and much-needed new addition for the 2015 Airshow Season. Nikon 80-400 VR AF-S. So much sharper than the old version and seems really close to my 300 prime, even when the 80-400 is wide open at 5.6. I think I likey! The moon image is handheld, straight up, 400mm, 1/200, iso200, f/5.6. Not bad at all considering I was also shooting through thin clouds...

Nice shot, Chris.  I'm about to drop the cash for that lens as well.

Oh yes, I like the new Nikon 80-400 just fine. This was 290mm, 1/100 at f5.6, iso200, just as the last light of the day was going away. When you consider that I had not practiced panning or shooting anything that moves for most of the winter, I am very pleased.

I can appreciate that John. While the temp was in the upper 30's at 6:00pm, the wind was blowing 15-20, I was not dressed warmly enough and I was COLD! It made it pretty difficult to pan. Of course that is nothing compared to what you deal with, but in Atlanta, it was cold enough.

So sad to hear of Leonard Nimoy's passing at 83. It kind of feels like I've lost a lifelong friend. LLAP

Story
Tagline
Photographer, aviation enthusiast and private pilot as well as a husband and father of three.
Introduction
I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska during the 1960’s and fondly recall watching Starfighters, Phantoms and Super Sabres thunder over my back yard. This fascination with flight has never waned. I fulfilled a personal goal when I received my private pilot license in 1985. I experienced the thrill and satisfaction of accumulating flight time in the Piper Tomahawk, Warrior II and Archer II as well as simulated air combat hours with Atlanta’s Sky Warriors in a Beech T-34A Mentor. 

My interest in aviation has evolved into a passion for aviation photography. I have been photographing aircraft, along with the people who fly and maintain them, for more than 25 years and have compiled a large archive of unique and interesting photos. While most of my work for hire tends to be color action photography, I also love creating black & white fine-art images.

Today I am a professional photographer, specializing in aviation photography, but also shooting sports, event and fine-art images and a regular contributor to the magazine World Airshow News. In addition to print and electronic media sales, I am available for custom photo sessions.

Thanks again for visiting my G+ page. If you would like to see more of my photography, please visit my site at www.Aviationbuff.com.
