I’ve had my 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata (ND) for nearly eight months now, but until now, I haven’t taken it out for a proper photoshoot.
In September I had the opportunity to shoot an air show in Warrensburg, Missouri. The air show was a small community show put on by the University of Central Missouri. Because of the show’s small size I was able to get up close and personal to the performing aircraft. As an added bonus the weather cooperated this time, and I didn’t have to worry about heavy cloud cover complicating things like at last year’s Alliance Air Show in Dallas.
A few weeks back I did a short portrait shoot with Tommy, a good friend of mine. Tommy needed some decent head shots that he could use on his social media profiles. As with Marissa’s shoot we headed out to Peace Park in Columbia, Missouri for another simple single-speedlight portrait session.
In October I had the opportunity to see the Alliance Air Show in Fort Worth, Texas. The show had a number of great aircraft performers from various time periods, and featured the USAF Thunderbirds for the finale. I was excited to take my DSLR along to snag some photos of the show. Unfortunately, an unexpected cold front the night before created awful weather conditions for the show.
