edited for spelling...;)

As you all know, I work quite a bit and give myself few days off.

So I try to 'plan' my spotting for a day, which is at the hands of the elements, which stinks.


Once in a while, I can hit the tarmac at JFK...I've done it FOUR times and NOT ONCE have I seen the sun I just kills me. Been on the tarmac FOUR times and not once with the sun.

So with that, here is Mario's attempt to further learn the camera.

-got a wickedly cool 727 with wingtips AND CLAMSHELL reverse thrust. was playing with panning.
-pink song, my first time seeing her and realized her regi is also my birthday, June 10, which was doubly cool, got her t/o and landing.
-Star Alliance Lauda
-Cool 777 Alitalia.


Now, a few questions....my sensor is clean. But I did quite a bit of lens changing. SO what principle lens element do you think the dust spots are coming from? I would think on the lens, no? between the body and lens, since those spots are coming up, I would think the nodal point is in there somewhere.

Also, for editing, I was shooting at ISO 200, I did not mess around with exposure but did a bit of shooting in AV mode and, again, playing with panning. tips? in fact, general tips for crap wx?

Well, whoooopteedoo! You should've seen the little temper tantrun I threw when you informed Phil of that information on the phone last night.



Mario...I've already hosted the movie clip....just waiting for it to process. I'll post it as soon as I have the active link.

P.S. I see the Lufthansa A-330 hiding behind the jetwash back there in that Pink Song photo....love that plane for some reason.



ALSO....is the other one back there an Israir? Do you remember or can anyone else tell? I saw that plane for the first time on Sunday, but it was too far back in line, and with not enough daylight for us to have stayed to see it depart.

Great shots, Mario. It looks like you're really getting the hang of that camera.

Great work Mario! I wanted to shoot yesterday but knew the sun would not make an appearance. The cancer awareness song would have been great with good lighting!

HA! I just did my first video file the other day, it was not the best, but, my battery was dying on me, & I did not know what I was doing.

I have a photobucket account & you can load video files onto it. (I think 90 seconds or less)

Another option is a you tube account,
