The Photo Galleries and words are a true team effort… the Photorecon.net/ClassicWarbirds.net/CivilAviationWorld.com photo team at Airshow London’s 2018 ’s weekend consisted of Shawn Byers, Ken Middleton, Mark Kolanowski and Ken Kula.

Airshow London, one of Ontario Canada’s premier aviation events, offers some mighty fine opportunities for aviation photographers to hone their skills and network with other like-minded people. For the third year in a row, since the show returned from hiatus, the Photo tour has evolved, both in size and opportunity. In Psych 101, I was taught that it is human nature to resist change, but these changes that have occurred at the Airshow London over the past three years, are welcome and even anticipated.

Night Spotting at KPHX

By: Category: Uncategorized

After dropping a friend off at Sky Harbor, I decided to take a minute to snap some photos from Terminal 4. Shooting at night is completely different from daytime. With daylight, it’s a lot easier to capture the image you want, with night, a whole new set of challenges arise. With some photos taking up to 30 seconds to capture, everything has to go right in order to make that perfect shot. A steady tripod is a must and a wireless shutter release could also be a big help (I found that out the hard way). Although I didn’t get many usable photos, I definitely enjoyed the new experience and I plan on making more night trips out to Sky Harbor in the near future!
