Plan A Trip To AirVenture Next Year..You'll Become A Much Better Photographer...

by Dave Kallaway

There's an unbelievable amount of photogs down at EAA's Airventure every year and with good reason. Subject matter..that's why. Plenty of fast planes, dramatic stunt shows both day and night give you and your camera a complete work out....(took this pic at one of their night shows..they actually attach fireworks to the end of the wings so you can see them at night)

I've said before here on the photography blog that shooting pics of birds in the backyard helps to shoot everything else..like sports..it REALLY helped to get pics of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds..one of the spotlights of this year's Airventure in Oshkosh...

And if you're into abstract photography at all..don't miss the night air shows. Several planes do aerobatics with lights and fireworks attached to their planes..a PERFECT photo op for photogs into slow shutter photography. Here you just watch the planes pass by in the night..hold the shutter open..and boom..you get very cool designs..it's like painting with your camera! Hope to see you there next year!!
