hey everyone ! ill be heading to the airshow at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego and since ill be Using the canon rebel T7, with the 75-300 lens attached,
id like to know some aperture, shutter etc, settings that I can use to try and get some solid images ! this Is really my first jump into photography and all..
cheers all !
most fly at higher altitudes where I live.. won't get a good image .. but on occasion our law enforcement agency will fly over and literally say hello over the p a to us on the ground if there is a group of us outside at a park or something ..
I just got through shooting an air show. My settings I used are as follows. My camera is my 1DX or 1D Mk IV.
Av node is my most favorite when I am using long telephoto lenses. In this case it was my Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Sports Lens on the 1D4 and my Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports Lens on my 1DX.
In Av mode I usually fix the aperture around f5.6 or f8 for air shows. ISO is 400 and WB is Daylight, of course always Raw format. This generally renders a SS around 1/2000 but keep in mind your conditions may warrant adjustments.
