1 Sturdy tri­pod

Your cam­era needs to be fixed to a tri­pod through­out so that every­thing is cap­tured from the same an­gle – this’ll make it much eas­ier to piece im­ages to­gether.

2 Cable re­lease

A cable re­lease is handy as press­ing the shut­ter but­ton on the cam­era body can dis­turb the po­si­tion. It also makes things more con­ve­nient, as you can grab a seat.

3 Mu­ti­ple shots

Take sev­eral shots of each air­craft as it trav­els through the frame. This’ll give you more op­tions when it comes to build­ing the com­pos­ite im­age. The more im­ages, the bet­ter.

4 Key set­tings

Shoot in aper­ture-pri­or­ity mode, with an aper­ture of f/8 or higher to keep every­thing sharp (but watch that the shut­ter speed doesn’t dip be­low 1/200 sec).
