    Well, for starters.... you were carrying like 80lbs in glass... on top of that you have those sh!tty Canon straps that make your camera feel like 50 lbs without a lens and make your neck sore after 6min flat. Also you do not have a cool backwards cap like Phil, the sun was reflecting off of my awesome $180 dollar lens and I think you just dropped your bag on your foot.

    Seriously, when the hell are you going to get rid of those neck breaking horrible canon straps???

    Actually I took this a half a second later

    LOL!! I'm actually getting a Black Rapid Double strap soon, which I heard will instantly transform me into a professional photographer, even with my shoddy skills. Not a bad investment for $130!

    Or you could get an OP/TECH strap for a whole lot less and be comfortable too...

    I have an OP/TECH. It will make you a wannabe Photographer with a big head. Trust me, you can actually buy a few beers after the purchase which will lead to more pictures with you and a big smile! :borat:

    Well, if it's the OP/TECH that's giving you that big head, then maybe I should go with that one Actually, it will probably be better for me, since the Black Rapid attaches to the tripod socket, which will be a bit annoying, since I use my tripod a lot (mainly because it makes me look more professional).

    Re: History Under the Stars 2010 (Nighttime Airshow Photoshoot)

    Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know what I was trying for with the winners for History Under the Stars. I am trying to get a dusk / nightshoot together for the aircraft that will be at Farmingdale for the Coney Island Airshow! A-10 and Hornets and Harriers’ OH MY! If we can do that I also will try for other events in the upcoming year as well. No promises other than I will try.

    Please do not forget the Deadline for all entry’s is this Friday -Fred

    Sorry, one more that I just found. I'm a little shocked that I didn't notice this photo earlier, because it's one of my favorites from the shoot:

    Again - Congratulations Fred and (Fred) and Cary!

    Yes we were, but he did not have a cover on the canopy in his shot!

    Don't feel too bad.. I put this shot in and was rejected

    That lightning shot is nice Fred, but it could have used a rainbow and possibly some livestock in the foreground.
    :D

    Wow, to say the least I am shocked and speechless. I really don't know what to say except for thank you! There were so many outstanding shots posted by everyone from that night I am really humbled.

    I thought I knew a lot about photography and planes but that night I learned so much more and got to do it with a great group of people.

    Thanks again to Fred & the AAM for giving us the opportunity.
