    Hi guys/gals.

    My name is Cory I am 14 from KSNA - Orange County, CA. I just had for the first time a photo (s) uploaded to any site here at it is so awesome to so your passion for photography, and aviation to the world with this kind od stuff. I have tried many times to get some shots on but no luck, obviously they could care less for people who can't afford to spend thousands of dollars for a camera [img]images/smiles/icon_sad.gif[/img] But on the other hand is the greatest, I finally got some uploaded, woo hoo. Anyway, does anybody have the Fuji FinePix 3800? I got it for X-mas, and I was looking for some tips on how to take better shots, I'm gettin' the hang of manuel mode, and info in that area would be great. Thanks again [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

        Dear cory,
        Congradulations and welcome to the wonderful world of aviation photography. This christmas I received a Nikon F65 35mm SLR APS camera to take good airliner shots as I spend a lot of my free time at Sydney airport. Sorry by my camera is run by film but as we are both beginners may I offer you the following tips:

        1) Learn the art of panning - Make sure you focus the aircraft well before it passes this point.

        2) Have a lot of variety in your photos - If something looks rare and would most likely appeal to other aviation photography enthusiasts, go for it!

        3) I also recommend this site which is jam packed full of tips on how to take good pics (not aviation but worth a look):

        Have fun,

          I am new. I just got an Olympus C-720 Digital Camera (330mm Optical Zoom) and have 10 photos currently waiting for upload...the eleventh is my probably know him...Blair Clayton..he accidently uploaded it on my account [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]) But first four pics I uploaded are not let that reflect badly on me. I took them with a 20 dollar camera. I just felt like uploading them.

          My tip to you with your digital. Is Use Super High Quality setting...and dont use digital zoom.
