Photographing an Air Show

We had the opportunity to photograph the Pikes Peak Regional Air Show last weekend here in Colorado, and we’ll share our gear, settings, and what we learned. We’ll also offer our hands-on look at the new Topaz Photo AI plug-in, which delivers astonishingly good results for sharpening, noise reduction, and upscaling digital images.

Nikon 28-75mm f/2.8 Revisited

We recently got our hands on the Nikon (made by Tamron) 28-75mm f/2.8 Nikkor Z lens. This is a well-made lens that is very good optically, and is far less expensive than the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8S lens. Much to our delight, the Nikon 28-75mm f/2.8 is an excellent performer for infrared photography (something that the 24-70/2.8S does not do well). Should you get one? It depends on your needs, and what kind of subjects you enjoy photographing.

Many thanks to our friends at B&H Photo for loaning us the Nikon 28-75mm lens to test!

We took a short trip to Tucson, Arizona and we shot infrared photos exclusively. Look for an infrared workshop from us in early 2023!
