And yes it was planned that way :cool:

Julie Clark's T-34?

The F-15 shot is spectacular. That should be a poster on a wall in one of the squadron's buildings at Kingsley Field.

Nice blur on all the rest too.

Another lucky mistake. Shutter speed should have been 1/250, instead I spun the wheel again and it was 1/80.

Victor, that F-15 blur shot defines the genre! Outstanding work. Do you give clinics?

Playing around with some of the filters in Photoshop a bit and came up with these. The original for September Fury is at the top of this thread.

Nice job Rick, you can get away with that on the F-4 shot but Sept. Fury
looks kinda strange with the prop almost stopped and the background that blurred. One thing I have noticed in shooting the jets at slower shutter speeds you see a lot more of the heat distortion.

I'm going to claim a "Tim" on that one I was going to dial up more shutter speed and I went the wrong way. Lucky I was panning like crazy.
I'm a big fan of Drag racing and I've been shooting Top Fuel cars for twenty years now. I think that made great practice for shooting racing planes. :D

We all should be so "Tim"! You know you're famous when this denotation hits Funk & Wagnals! 'Course, you'll hit http://www.urbandictionary.com/ first!

The proper word to use there would be 'known' instead of 'know'. Looks like you Tim'd again. :joke:

Victor, yeah I know I need a bit more work on photoshop. I had a few free minutes at the end of the day and messed around with it a bit. As you can tell I didn't waste to much time on it but thought the effect was pretty cool anyway.

Hehe, no screw up. Just "Tim" = dial under on shutter speed.
I also have another favorite technique that is known as the "Bill" shot.
I'm workin on the "Rick" view but I'm still having problems perfecting that one. :D

The "Rick" view will always be a work in progress that never quite reaches perfection.

Does the "Bill" shot involve a large flame throwing device used to start a barbacue? Oh, that would be Bill Sr.

I didn't actually meet Bill Sr. but I did witness him start the barbacue outside the AAR hangar on Friday night. First he uses the forklift to move the barbacue into place then pulls out this 3 foot tall propane tank and blasts away at the barbacue pit with a flamethrower for the next five minutes. Most impressive barbecue lighting I ever saw.

Bill is a pretty impressive guy, so is Bill... err.. they are not really Bill Sr. and Bill Jr. they are Bill Pearce and Bill Pearce... hence my stance that Bill is actually a clone of Bill...

Once you get to know them both a bit, it becomes clearer.... ;)

Really, a couple of my favorite people, even if I can't get Bill to call me.... *snif*.....

:cool:

Wayne
PS... Bill... is it because I have not posted a "bald Wayne shot?" hummn... it could be time for a tripod and self portrait... I don't think BeerNazi, who usually shoots so much with her "throwaway" digital P&S (actually it's mine but I never use it so....) that I also call her Camera Girl... anyway.. she does not seem to want to preserve my current "look" for historical archiving. I'm not so sure I want it done either..

Actually Bill... I look a little like you and Bill... could we all be related?????

:dunno:

:thumbsup: :eek:

Have you ever seen the liquid oxygen grill-lighting method, as demonstrated at the link below?

Three seconds and you're ready for burgers. Now, that's some serious s__t.

Don't try this at home, etc.

That is the way we Texans start all our B-B-Q fires. Sounds like he was using something like a propane prickly pear burner.

Only way to get a good mesquite wood fire going quickly. :thumbsup:
