Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken at the Eastbourne Airshow (Airbourne) in 2015.
Time
The air displays take place in the afternoon, and this one must have been around 3 pm.
Lighting
Afternoon sunshine.
Equipment
My camera was an Olympus E-500, fitted with an Olympus Digital 40-150mm lens.
Inspiration
It was one of a number taken on the day, and in this case the inspiration was the angle after the display team had passed and were starting to bank for a return flypast.
Editing
The original photograph had a large amount of sky, so was cropped using Corel Paintshop Pro. I also sharpened it slightly and increased the vibrancy.
In my camera bag
My camera is an Olympus E-500. I carry three lenses - Olympus Zuikko Digital 14-45mm, Olympus Zuiko digital 40-150mm (which is the one I carry fitted), and an Olympus Zuiko Digital 70-300mm. There is also an Olympus Electronic Flash FL-36R but I hardly use it, since I lost the handbook and can't really figure out how to get the best from it! I find the on-camera flash is adequate for most things, augmented by post production.
Feedback
At events like this I take a lot of photographs, often with the subject so far away that it can only form a relatively small part of the image. I set the camera to a sport setting, which gives me multiple exposures so that I can track the subject.I also have to work hard on breathing (my technique is one deep breath in and out, a second deep breath with a brief pause after half-exhaling during which I click and go - sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't). I am very much an amateur who is beginning to find that other people like what I have captured, and this has prompted me to click away to build experience and portfolio. It is better to have a lot of shots to chose from and then discard a lot (a benefit of digital photography) than to miss or mess the crucial shot.
