Why do you only build What-if models?
I've been building models for 30 years now. Started out building them as toy cause toy companies did not make toys of the planes I wanted to play with. Then start building for fun. Through high school, started building for models competitions. Had some fun and won a few awards. But it quickly got tiresome. I found I as spending more and more time researching than building, having to correcting kits.....no joy there. I continued to build during college, that's when I knew I really love building things that is born in imagination and not reality. After college, I didn't build much and that's when my love affair with photography started. But in Sept of 2007, I got "the itch" to build again. But I told myself "If it's not fun, I'm not building it and I'm only working on it when I feel like building and not when I have time to build". So, I started working on my IAF A-10I "Chazir", which took 567 days to complete. After that, I never looked back at building anything "Real".
What camera and lense do I use? I currently use a Canon EOS 7D. Here's a list of glass I have used to shoot Airshows.
Sigma 50-500mm f/4-6.3 EX DG HSM Canon EF-S 17-85mm F4-5.6 IS USM Canon EF 100mm F2.8 USM Macro Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM(and with 2x extender) Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM( both the MkI and II and with 2x extender) Canon EF 500mm f4.5 L USM Canon EF 500mm f/4 L IS USM (both the MkI and II)
Can I have a high res copy of one of your images? Send me an email,email@example.com let's see what we can work out.
What setting do you use while shooting airshow? I have a future article called "How I shoot an Airshow" which would best answers that question. But as a general rule, I nomally shoot helicopters and propeller aircraft in shutter priority and jets in aperture priority. This works very well for me and may not work for you.
What program(s) do you use to make your profiles? Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop CS
Where do you get your line drawings from for your profiles? The easiest way to get lineart for you profiles is to do a Google search on "Whatever type aircraft" line drawing. You will find what your looking for.
