How can I photograph the launch?
First, load your camera with a good film. ASA 100 is fine. If you are going to shoot a sequence of photos showing the shuttle as it clears the launch pad, set your camera shutter speed to 1/500 of a second, and set your arpature to f/8. If your cameras has a motor drive, use it. Always put your camera on a tripod if you can. If not, you could probably get away with hand holding it. Always make sure you have fresh, new batteries in your camera.
