I saw photos from Airliners.net and am fascinated by the photos of airplanes.

Is there any group here that does aviation photography? Or are there people in this group who do aviation photography? Any tips of a good place to shoot?

Thanks...

There isn't any group per se but you can find individuals shooting along Changi beach or SAFRA NSRCC, location depends on the inbound schedules. Im more or a military enthusiast so i visit LIMA airshows(once every 2yrs for shoot)...anyway i've to skip this year due my newborn:cool:

Yes that is the Air Force Museum.

There's a theatre over there you can go to watch some videos and a small gift shop.

I'm not so sure if the S211 is still there though.

Hi, i first started with a Sigma 70-200 f2.8 with pretty decent results. Fast moving? Depends on subject matter...a helicopter in hovering position, or a C-130 with feathering props, looks noticeably different from say a F-16 doing a bomb burst.

Fast moving as in F-16s doing bomb burst or other aerobics. I'm planning to get one decent camera from sitex and use it for next year's Singapore Airshow 2008 :)

the camera is just part of the equation.
The lens is just as, if not more important!

well... this period is quite a good timing to take our black knights doing their practices...

i normally take aviation photos... just be careful and sentitive to your surroundings when taking photos... do not want to have the ISA come knocking on your doors...

there are some good spots depending on which type of planes one is interested in...

well... better try not to... i used to do that but that was before the 911... now, have to be careful... remember the case where the ISA went to the house of a photographer and he was arrested for only taking photo of a road of the place where US military personnels are?...:eek:
