A practical how-to guide to photographing aircraft for anyone from air show enthusiasts to those aspiring to be professional     aviation photographers. Simply defined, aviation photography is the taking photos of airplanes. But behind the scenes of this seemingly simple act are a number of critical elements: aircraft scheduling, lighting, spotting locations, diversions, and sometimes interactions with law enforcement officials. In this guide I will talk about finding locations suitable for photographing aircraft, the equipment I use, camera settings, basic photographic concepts and techniques and discuss basic aviation knowledge in order for you to improve your photography for years to come.
