  • A digital photo shooting session of airplanes in an air show  By : Carol Pruitt

  • Continuous focus mode used for shooting digital photos of moving objects  By : Carol Pruitt
    It is harder to shoot good digital photos of moving objects than of still objects. When objects are still you have all the time that you need to focus on the object and set the other camera parameters like shutter speed and aperture. This time shortens as the objects in the frame move faster and faster.

  • The Early Years In Helicopter History  By : Low Jeremy
    History tells us that the first concept of man trying to defy gravity and actually fly was through a helicopter flight.
