I found myself taking the same pictures, however, that I do every year. We've been married nearly 26 years, and have attended countless airshows, open houses, events and informal gatherings of pilots and their aircraft. How many jets can I take photos of from how many angles? How many people wandering the tarmac? And how many photos do I need of the same group of planes and pilots which come every year to many of these gatherings? I think anyone who takes a lot of pictures, whether a professional, semi-professional, amateur or family-album-keeper variety of photographer, needs to really stretch his/her vision to become more observant and creative.
So as I wandered yet another gathering of plane and pilot, I tried to find a few non-traditional photos to add to my repertoire. I was only able to be there for a short while each day, but found a couple of new views.
What do you do to find that "different," or "unusual" shot?
Please share your ideas so we can all learn to look a little more closely at the world around us.
