2017 09 24 - Battle of Britain Duxford

B-17G-105 Flying Fortress (Sally B) with her little pal below her.

Great photographic challenge to have the shutter speed low enough to have movement in the propellors but not have a blurry plane...... work to be done, but a great day out
Nicely captured

Nice combination flypast. The shutter speed is certainly a challenge I started at 1/320 but now I'm generally at 1/250 it's always a worry that you going to trash the shot though :)

Great work Sarah, this is a terrific shot. What's the smaller aircraft, DC-4?

@rjb71 Richard, I've trashed so many! But there were a couple of good ones. Do you use tripod/gimbal or hand hold?

@pixiemac Hi Sarah I shoot hand held 70-300 lens so not too heavy. I've been to Duxford 3 times this year on the Friday and gradually improved by practice I've even got the odd good shot at 1/100 but it's certainly more miss than hit at that speed :)
