    In late May we have a yearly air show where I live, and last year was my first year taking pictures at said air show. Though I don't think they were bad for my first time, I would have loved for them to come out better. However, I am not completely sure on what I should be focusing on when shooting planes. Aperture? Shutter speed? Both? I was wondering if I could get some tips on what I should be doing and what techniques I should be using when I go to the air show this year.

    Some of last year's pictures:

    Yeah, so I was wondering if I could get some tips instead of my thread dying with a lot of views and no replies. :gah:

    You can check out some of my better shot of an air show i did in my area, also my first one. i used a zoom lens (70-200 f/2.8) so i could get some detail into it. shot on manual and adjusted my settings accordingly depending on where the light was coming in from. here are a few examples of what i have done.
