2006 St Louis Airshow (http://www.stlcofair.org/)

I started this series with the most dramatic shot of the show. Now we are getting into the "core" of the show - the planes and jets... and of course the dramatic smoke.

I have a medical condition that causes hand tremors(shaking). I always have to make special compensations when I shoot for this. Focusing is almost always a nightmare - so you can imagine how difficult these action shots are for me. I am just pleased that they came out at all. One compensation I make is to take MANY photos of the same thing - then choose the best ones. So for this 3 hour show I shot +/- 800 shots! Unfortunately all the image stabilization I have tried doesn't help much. ;(

I hope you enjoy the show as much as Christopher and I did.

Best experienced at original size!
