    I would love to submit, but photography is just a hobby for me & I am not published... I also have no experience with night shots, so don't have any to submit :(

    You can always take 3 night shots tonight and see what happens... you have to enter to be in it, aviation shots are good but if you shoot only daytime shots, any night shot may get you in this year. -Fred

    Oh man............HUTS is closing in fast!!! Can't believe it's this weekend.......hopefully the weather cooperates. Also, althought it will be sad to not see the Blue Angels or Thunderbirds at this years Jones Beach airshow, I'm still looking forward to it, as well as seeing you all! Thanks again to Fred!

    Does anybody know the event that goes on at the museum prior to the HUTS shoot on Sat night. Is that event open to the Public? I recall seeing an ad for it but can not seem to find it now. Museum site does not have it listed. If any one can post a link or any info it would be great. Thanks

    Thanks for the response. Do you know if there is going to be any golden hour fly over passes with any of the air show participants? I happen to catch a few last year from Dave & Busters lot but I believe that was event related.

    There is nothing planned but you never know what happens around there until it happens! :)

    Hey Everyone,
    I'm just trying to field some more opinions on this:
    Do you guys think the Nikon 18-200 & Tokina 12-24 are ok to use for an event like this?
    Or do you guys think I should rent something a like the Nikon 24-70 F2.8 to replace the 18-200 for a night shoot (less flare and better sharpness but I'd still be shooting at F8)?
    Last time I had a Tamron 24-70, but I have since sold it :-(

    Tokina 12-24 is an awesome lens. For the statics, it can't be beat. If you want some reach or extra close up, get the longer zoom.

    I suggest a wide lens (14-24mm) and a zoom (70-300mm or 70-200mm) lens. Don't forget your tripod, flash and a shutter release cable or remote.

    I think I'm gonna stick with the 12-24 and 70-300 for the night shooting. Thanks for the advice guys!

    Sounds like a good combo to go with.

    Also worth knowing is your sensor's diffraction limits and stick with the sweet spot apertures. We must always make decisions based on creativity which puts us in bad quality land... but you should always try and stay within the sensor's limits for maximum sharpness. Long exposures are the truest test of a quality system and best technique. Here is a very technical and educational article on the subject :)

    Where do you rent lenses from?
