As luck would have it, it appears that I will be on a beach near Cape Canaveral when the space shuttle launches Sunday evening. Thankfully I have most of my camera gear with me. However, As you may have guessed, I have yet to shoot a space shuttle launch and am i need of any tips you may have to offer. I can't seem to decide whether I will need to over expose the shots because of the extreme brightness of the tail flame or under expose them so that they don't get blown out. Help with this and any other advice would be appreciated. Thanks you in advance. BTW...Internet access is sporadic right now so if I do not respond in a timely fashion, I apologize in advance. Please keep posting info so that I can read it when I get another chance to log on....prior to launch.
