Hey, we've known this for some time, Sam! Obviously if you live in the Nordic countries, you need to adapt in winter, and Janne has done so!! Big grin

Whoa  Wow!, thanks for your nice words guys! It's very rewarding to find a thread with your own name in this forum.

Well, you really have to adapt here in the North. It is possible to shoot long days in summer (if you don't get bored to traffic  Wink/being sarcastic) and night shots in winter. Of course if I have to choose between a grey day shot or a more colorful night shot, I don't have to think hard  Smile

Night shooting is not very hard once you master the technique. If it's very dark and shutterspeeds are n seconds, you need to "think" n seconds forward because there are always some ground vehicles or other planes driving/taxiing behind or front of your subject. Sometimes I've taken tons of photos of a single plane and maybe one came out useful. This is not a problem with digital but back in the days when I was shooting film this was far more expensive if you had to burn 1-2 rolls of film to get one decent shot  Big grin

ps. thanks for the plug Big grin

Hi Janne

May I know where all those sharp night shot taken? All from the ramp or outside? With a tripod help?

Cheers,

Sam

Sam,

All are shot "behind fences" since HEL is not known for giving ramp access very easily  Sad

Every night shot is tripod mounted. In many cases quite tall tripod is recommended so that you can shoot over the fence. (although with digital you can also shoot thru the fence quite easily even with a 77mm diameter front element)

Wow, this is stunning - and you can just do it behind the fence? Next time I'm in Europe I need to go to HEL for a day or two! I really like night shots as well!!

Always a pleasure to view Jannes (night)shots. And the subjects are always interesting: soviet built planes....  Wink/being sarcastic

Well, let's just hope you don't bore to death because of the traffic in here  Wink/being sarcastic. Night shots can be taken at pretty much every airport I've visited so far so I don't think HEL is no better place in that mind  Big grin

And the subjects are always interesting: soviet built planes

That's right!
Nothing beats good old (and why not new?) Russian action  Big thumbs up
