QuikTrip Air and Rocket Racing Show - 04.24.10 - Tulsa, OK

Postby ol' yeller » Mon Apr 26, 2010 5:20 pm

The conditions more than sucked. Cloudy one second and sunny the next which played hell with my exposures. Later in the day it became extremely overcast and was raining a little here and there. The wind was at 20 mph gusting to 32 and I could hardly get a sharp photo of the prop planes.

On the plus side, I did get to meet Ashley Battles and Amanda Younkin who are both wing walkers. They aren't too bad on the eyes either. :yes:

Static shots were taken with an EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 and in-flights were with an EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM. The body is a Canon XTi.

With all of my excuses out of the way here are the few semi-keepers...

Looks like you guys are going to have to view the pictures separately as the forum software won't allow the entire 1024 pixels to show.

Good job :thumbsup:

By the look of the sky in a lot of those pics you did just fine for tough shooting conditions.

If it wasn't for shooting in RAW and having Photoshop 95% of the pictures would have been crap. The sky was blown out in most of them.

Hey you got any close up pics of the wing walker in pic #13? I wouldn't mind a closer look :biggrin:

The power of photo shop! Still like them. I keep wanting to try out an air show with my 100-400L. We have one in a small town close to where I live I am thinking I will have to give it a go this year.

Yeah, but he's all up on both of them. It's not worth seeing half a girl.

I'm sure you can find some pictures if you follow the links below.
