During our Civil Air Patrol operations in Hillsboro this summer, our flight crews spent many hours “chasing” a drone as part of an agricultural research project. Many of the flights were over four hours in duration, a handful over five hours. It’s no surprise that our crew of two was happy to land and call it a day. After landing, I captured the aircraft as it taxied off the runway and onto the ramp area.
About the photo: This cellphone image captured with an S7 Samsung using automatic settings chose a shutter speed of 1/3800 of a second. At that shutter speed, it captured the spinning prop as it might have done if the engine were shut off. For techie camera types, the lens was set to f/1.7 and ISO-50. As always, the image was captured and edited on a mobile device.
