Drone Photography, Photographing Air Shows & Newborn Photography Tips

Here’s another round of nice articles for you photographers out there!

How To Photograph An Airshow


Most articles regarding airshows only highlight the various technical aspects involved. This article is different in that it brings into focus, quite literally, several different ways to maximize your efficiency and get spectacular shots. 

It tells you what kind of lenses will give you the best shots of these aerial events, with lenses ranging from 200mm – 400mm being the best for tight shots of the planes and also for capturing the drama of the flares and trails against the blue sky. It also touches upon the ideal shutter speeds if you want to pause all motion or if you prefer to highlight the motion of the propeller.

Another practical tip that most people overlook is bringing along a tripod – not just for the sake of stability, but also so you can rest your tired arms after holding your heavy cameras for several hours.

One tip that is not covered in the article is to carry an ND-filter so that you can use slower shutter speeds to capture certain patterns and create dramatic images, especially when the planes corkscrew from a great height and pull up suddenly, or when they create smoke trails of various colors.

As you can see in the photographs collected in this article, drone photography can potentially change the way you view the world.

Drone photography truly takes the concept of stepping back and looking at the larger picture to a whole new level.
