Craig Hall Photography PRO 5:57am, 8 August 2009
Hi all. Well at long last the guys from Temora will have the RAAF Sabre up for display.

As mentioned in an earlier thread booking for accommodation where booking fast.

However thought the would be again a great opportunity for us to meet and exchange in depth stores a trade tricks over the weekend. Myself and Jimwebb333 have booked a campsite (airport camping ground), Jim doing it minimalistic and well me with everything but the kitchen sink, but comfortable.

So if you plan on going drop a line or pop in say hi.

Craig - does that mean not within the museum??
Steve Daggar PRO 9 years ago
Hi Craig, I've only been to Temora once and pretty much only shot from the grandstand area. Mainly trying to get panning shots, with limited success due to forgetting to turn off IS D'oh!.

I seem to recall the grandstand wasnt ideal for sun position in the afternoon, so I'm interested to hear thoughts on best vantage points
admin
@ Naemick , yeah that's what i am thinking, but might depend on weather. The best spot is at runway end for get good photos but also a good view of the show.

@ Stave D, interesting with the Is issue I consistently hear mixed feeing on whether to turn IS on or off. I have a reasonable good success rate, but this week end will be breaking out a new Monopod head


New toys

Inside the museum I would be looking for the far left side (looking at the runway) there you get a good shot of approach and departure. But out side the museum along the road there are a number of spots that give you good position as well (however a good zoom is needed for best results). Back to being inside the museum the biggest advantage is the commentary (if you’re new or interested in the story line) and you are also closer to the action.

I would stay away from the grandstand and get up alongside the fence, nothing worse than someone’s head or speaker in the way. Why can't they put the speakers down low........

Hope this helps.
