Behind The Lens

This was taken at RNAS Yeovilton Air Day in Yeovil Somerset
Around midday
A fortunate combination of sunshine and light clouds helped to give the contrast
Nikon D5100 with Nikkor telephoto 55-300mm lens , handheld
I love watching the Red Arrows and wanted to capture the essence of their amazing aerial display
Contrast adjusted, slight lomo and orton effects
In my camera bag
Nikon D5100 with Nikkor 55-300mm telephoto lens is my favourite but I also use a Nikon J2 with 10-30mm lens for more wide angle shots and a Nikon Coolpic P900 is handy as it is highly versatile with massive 83x zoom (I didn't yet own that one when I got this shot though). I have an Olympus TG-1 for underwater shots and also when the weather's really wet. I always carry spare batteries and SD cards. I sometimes take my monopod or tripod and I have filters and macro equipment I occasionally take.
To be honest I'm not very experienced at this type of photography, but I tend to use aperture priority on my camera a lot as it isolates the subject well and gives nice DOF.
