Lockon Aviation Photography

The photos on this site were taken over a period from about 1988 to present. My interests originally included mostly military aircraft; however, as the military phased out bright colors in favor of Low-Viz paint schemes, I started to gain more interest in Civil Airliners and other non-military aircraft.

Cameras: As of April 2013 the well used Nikon D200 is retired and I now use the Nikon D300 and occasionally the Nikon D800 with the new AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR and Nikkor 18-200mm VR II lenses. My other favorite lenses are the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 II and old Nikon 35-105mm because the lens fits in most fences. Lenses have ranged from marginal non-Nikon lenses to an assortment of Nikon lenses including the now retired workhorse 80-400 VR lens (original version).

Film Photos: Prior to digital I used Fuji Provia 100F & Kodachrome 25 and 64 film in a variety of Nikon film bodies that included the Nikon N2000, 8008s, N90s and F100. Slides were scanned with a Nikon Coolscan 4000ED and Vuescan software. Many older images were scanned with the Minolta Scan Dual II.
