I was about 13 years old when I saw the USAF Thunderbirds air demonstration team for the first time. I knew at that moment that I wanted to be a fighter pilot, but alas, it was not meant to be. My eye sight wasn’t 20/20, which back in the 80’s meant that I was ineligible. Nevertheless, my passion for flight never dwindled and I make it a point to see every air show that I can. At this years Rochester International Air Show, I had the opportunity to photograph the Navy’s Blue Angels with Sigma’s 150-600mm Sport lens. Could this lens possibly be the best lens ever to photograph an air show?
Shooting on location in the middle of the day can make controlling the sunlight very difficult. I have chosen my canon 5D mk iii. So if I want to shoot with flash off camera to control the bright sun I’m limited to a x sync of 1/200 of a second. This is going to make my aperture F16 and that is too much depth of field for my preference. I don’t like to use ND filters to open up my aperture because they make it difficult to see through the camera. I could use high-speed sync but this technique is flawed by the fact that the flash is at its lowest power as it pulses across the chip. Also, it would never give me enough power to overpower the sun in the middle of the day, so I only use this technique on cloudy days.
