Hi Darren... many thanks for the note, and many apologies for the long delay in responding (I only just saw your message!). I really appreciate your comments on the corsair shots. I didn't use a stabilizer, other than what was in the lens... it was shot at 1/25th sec... so it was a minor miracle that it worked! I have been meaning to pick up a gyro for some time though, and hopefully will do in the near future. Incidentally, I have just covered the most recent corsair gathering for Aircraft Magazine... there will be a new set of photos in the August issue... I didn't get as good a set of shots this time (at least from the air) as we had just 3 minutes and 1 second of air-time... and even then, just about 20 seconds was useable. But it was a thrilling experience, and I was very lucky to have the opportunity. I'm in Ottawa at the moment, working with Vintage Wings on another story, which should be fun. No air-to-air for me this time, but it was a great experience. Looking forwards to seeing some of your own work too... I am always impressed by what you do!
All the best,
I hope you don't mind me sending you a quick message but I spotted your images on the Corsair thread. Stunning shots on your website - thought I would let you know!
Do you use a stabiliser for the full prop disc images? I have just started using a pro stabiliser, and it makes a massive difference (especially when shooting out in the airflow).
