RAF Cosford Airshow 2014

Went to the airshow at RAF Cosford today and managed to take some great photographs. It has been sometime since I’ve been to an airshow, but it’s one of my favorite areas of photography. I have a personal interest in aircraft and to photograph them is very rewarding. I think it takes great skill to photograph an aircraft in flight and it really improves your skills. Playing with various shutter speeds to get motion blur in props and rotor blades, right through to panning with the aircraft to get a background blur and so create movement. The weather was also very changeable throughout the day and ranged from blue skies through to rain and dark clouds.
