Manston air show photography was a bit far removed from Wedding Photography in Kent but I made the most of having a quiet day on Saturday to spend some time in the garden and on the roof watching the air show at nearby Kent International Airport. I’m told that the traffic was an absolute nightmare getting into Thanet but fortunately for me my house was on the approach path for the airport and gave me a great vantage point to see the aircraft performing and coming in to land. The star of the show for me was the only flying example of the Vulcan bomber and what a sight (and sound) that was. I used some fast CF cards and my Nikon D300 with an 18 – 210 travel lens to get some great shots of the aircraft. Post processed them in Lightroom 4 and with the 1.5 magnification factor from the camera and lens it gave me some quite large images without too much loss of quality and without need to go into Perfect Photosuite 7 and use Perfect Fractals to enlarge them. Images shot at mainly f 5.6 ISO 400 at high shutter speed and EV +2.0 to compensate for the bright sky.
