    Glenn,

    The boy knows what is good for him! And those lovely big jetplanes are his penchant!

    But at the moment, we are restricted to photographing static aircraft. I've managed to get him to progress to aircraft lining up on Runway 18 at SHA, but when he moves onto landing shots, then I know that he has made it.

    Off to the airport this afternoon for more lessons!

    Andrew

    Hmmm

    I know you rejected an A-4 but the only one that shows in my que is this one

    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=317401

    hardly an Airliner. But that poses the other question, where are the other rejects ?

    A-4 Skyhawk wasn't it ? Not that big.

    Anyway, Screeners discretion is a factor outside our control

    Honestly can't recall what you rejected but one thing I know, I didn't uplaod any Airliner thingies

    Yeah but they weren't airliners. They're smaller harder thingies to photograph

    Julian has been bugging me for ages to go to the airport to take pictures. I finally took him and basically he got to use a Fuji S1 Pro. At first, he was having trouble centering the aircraft in the frame, cutting off noses and tails all over the place. I explained what he had to do and he corrected this, but the result was horizons that were all over the place. Finally once this got explained, he got the hang of it. We went home and when we checked what he had done, there were two photos that came out pretty well. Not 100% perfect, but they were sharp, centered (almost! ) and level.
    Where's #2?

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for all of the nice comments, I just saw this thread!

    Julian has been bugging me for ages to go to the airport to take pictures. I finally took him and basically he got to use a Fuji S1 Pro. At first, he was having trouble centering the aircraft in the frame, cutting off noses and tails all over the place.

    Now he wants to go again.........hooray!

    Mind you, he had an easy location to photograph from. No fence, and very very close to the aircraft..........to give you an idea of the proximity:

    The most important part in all this was to look thru the viewfinder and get that shot with a) the aircraft properly framed and centered and b) not blurry and c) with the quality needed to get a good result. The bit of post processing and adding a remark is irrelevant. And besides, there are clever young ones around. Something we oldtimers (I'm 39......) admire ... sometimes.

    If a 5 year old can take such a nice picture you wonder what is going through the minds of some of our other uploaders...
