The Olympia air show is an annual event held at the Olympia Airport.  Some of the highlights are military helicopters, some WWII vintage fighters, and a military fighter jet.  This was the first time I tried to photograph an air show.  It’s not easy!  The planes are moving really fast and the weather wasn’t the best.  I switched back and forth between my Zuiko 50-200 zoom lens and the Sigma 50-500.  The Sigma gave me more zoom range (the equivalent of 1000 MM on a 35 MM camera), but the Zuiko is sharper and gave better image quality.  That’s one of the things about photography, you often have to make compromises.  It was a fun day and I was pretty happy for my first time shooting an air show.
