Toronto International Air Show 2017

This was a tricky airshow to shoot, as the overcast skies meant that there was often little contrast between the skies and the airplane(s) I was trying to shoot pictures of. Much tweaking needed to be done in LightShop for many of these images in order to bring out detail but also keeping noise to a minimum. All pics shot using the trusty Olympus E-620 with the fast 200mm lens.

Pictures are arranged in the order the airplanes appeared in the show, and their names are derived directly from the emailed show schedule for the day courtesy of cias.org.

As I was taking the last photo rain began to fall, which quickly led to a downpour. After about a half-hour the skies cleared again, but by that time I was across the CNE grounds, so that was it for me, until next year!

Old War Planes at the Brampton Air Show

Got to join my step-father-in-law in a trip to Brampton to see the Great War Museum and Air Show. Couldn’t ask for a better day: sunny, clear-skies, and since we were right beside the runway, close access to the airplanes as they flew by. Here’s a shot of a couple of replica WWI planes during a fly-by:

Hamilton Airshow 2010

Had a great time with David Roy as we headed to the Hamilton Airshow and admired all of the planes flying by for what was a perfect day for flying (and for taking pictures). Here’s a selection of what I shot with my camera:
