A few weeks ago "AirVenture 2018" better known as Oshkosh took place in where else, Oshkosh, Wisconsin. 2018 marks my 11th consecutive year in a row to visit and photograph this monumental event. The scale and scope of this event is hard to imagine unless you have visited it in person. For the over week-long event, over 600,000 visitors, 5,000 volunteers, 10,000 aircraft arrivals, almost 20,000 aircraft operations, almost 3,000 show planes and over 40,000 campers in 12,000 sites on the airport. For me, it is one of the few airshows I attend and photograph, so it always takes a few days to re-learn my airshow photography techniques. I tend to want shots a bit different than some of the other airshow photographers seek out, and I also like to push the envelope in my post-processing for some different looks. I am pleased to present a sample of the 5500 photos I took during my week in Oshkosh. My eleventh trip to the event also marked my very first air-to-air photography experience. Please take a look and see what you think, constructive comments are always welcome. I will continue to add photos as I continue to process photos. Saturday morning marked a monumental event in my modest photography life. I was able to take a flight in a 1940s Vultee BT-13 trainer along with another Vultee BT-13. I occupied the rear seat (including strapping on a parachute) in the BT-13 named "Lucky 13" piloted by Hunter Reiley. All I asked was "please do not humble me" as I just want to take photos and not lose my camera (and a very light breakfast!). Hunter was very smooth and gentle with me, and I think we captured some great photos of his friend Kelly's BT-13. E-M1 mkII and Olympus 12-100 Pro
Last Friday I visited the newly built National Military Museum In Holland. The museum houses a large collection of military equipment. Everything is displayed very nice especially the airplanes, some of which are suspended from the ceiling which begs for dramatic photo opportunities. I shot a series of images, all with the Olympus E-M10 + Olympus 12-40mm f2.8. The whole series of 27 images can be seen here https://www.flickr.com/photos/lucdeschepper/sets/72157650031022728/ I'll show a selection of 11 images here. Please view large. 1.
