MCAS Cherry Point Air Show

I been reading about how to take pictures at an air show.  First thing they say is to practice, practice, and more practice especially practice taking pictures of fast moving objective.  Needless to say, I did not do enough practicing.  We only attended the MCAS Cherry Point Air Show on Friday night.  Because of my puppy, I did not  think it would be fair to let her home alone all day locked up.

The second think they say is to enable VR, which I did not do.  Needless to say, there  is another air show at MCAS Cherry Point in 2020 and I will be ready for that one.  The puppy will not  be a puppy any more.

The show started at 19:30 before sunset.  I think I got some good shoots.  I will be ready for the next one.  The “Blue Angels” where performing at the air show, unfortunately their skills and precision flying was at 15:30 in the afternoon on Saturday and Sunday.

Beside that, I think for my first time at an air show (and at an evening show), I did alright.  I need to practice, practice, and more practice before the next air show in 2020.
