I thought the tribe might enjoy a couple of my shots of the ICON A5
amphibious light sport aircraft along with some cool ICON A5 videos. The ICON A5 demo crew, Genesah Duffy, Warren Curry and Gary Knight came to Athens and Cedar Creek Lake and used my buddy’s dock as a water base.
From a photography standpoint, shooting prop planes well is more challenging than shooting jets because you should strive to show propeller motion while keeping the main subject in focus. That means you have to use a slow shutter speed to capture the prop motion with good panning technique if you want any hope of keeping the plane in focus. For these handheld shots I used a Canon dSLR body and Canon 100-400L lens. It’s a good airshow or bird in flight combo.Below are some cool videos that feature the ICON A5
