Aero India 2017

Got lucky with shooting some planes 🙂

But its boring to process so many shots !!!  I made a few batch runs in Nikon Capture NX-D followed by another batch run in Photoshop CC.  I am not aiming for super critical processing here in any case.

The Sukhoi MK30 routine was the best I thought. What a beast of an aircraft !

All Nikon D5, 200-500mm lens. A few wide shots with the Sony RX-100

Basic tips for Yehlankha air show

  1. For rotor full disk  go around 1/50th
  2. Shoot +1EV  off the sky for the flight shots
  3. Dial in manual white balance
  4. Plan for two full days for both morning & evening air displays
  5. “The Chalet” is a good place to shoot from
  6. Tickets are at Gate 5. There is a shuttle from Gate 5 to the main exhibition area
  7. You need separate tickets for each day
  8. Watch weather and try to shoot on cloudy day. The puffy clouds really enhance the sky.
  9. Bring a cap
  10. Drink lots of water
  11. Wear sneakers

Sony RX-100 shot and I love this.
