Riverside Airshow 2015
Jacob's Photos

13 year old Jacob is my son. He has been shooting airshows with me for the last few years. This year, I turned him loose with the Sigma 50-500mm lens. It's 4.5 pounds and not stabilized. Because the lens he has used the last few years is much lighter, I wasn;t sure how he would do with it, nor how long he would be willing to lift it. He surprised me on all fronts, hefting that lens skyward all day long with great results. He is a natural! Below are some of the shots that he took at the show this year.
