Thanks all, I will pass on your kind words to the model :D



She is quite large, 20 pounds, and has scared off the occasional maintenance worker, but she is a very gentle floofy giant who loves nothing more than to bask in the sun (and get nibbles of fresh chicken!) :D

Another Beauty shot of her

Thanks!

I normally shoot landscapes, or nature/object macros, so most of my subject matter is usually not moving very fast at all, so airshows are very different shooting situations for me!

This show I took around 1500 Photos with the Pentax, of which around 100 came out good enough to keep. I imagine the ratio would go up with practice and a better lens, (my Tamron 70-300 is a little long in the tooth and a bit slow to focus...)

I kept the camera on AF constant, and used AV mode, keeping the aperture around F 11-13 which kept the shutter speeds around 500 to help keep them as sharp as possible. It helped too that it was a splendid day with sun coming over my right shoulder for many of the photos which was about near perfect!
