I was browsing through the homepage this afternoon and found a very nice photograph.
Spectacular shot of a B747 on short final for RWY09 at St. Maartin taken by "Bruno Emmenegger".

All I can say is WOW. ...and of course, "How low can she go"???

But all I can ask is how??? How do you catch a plane at a direct side view from were you are standing without cliping pieces of the aircraft out of the picture. I know this is a skill that comes with time, but are there any 'tricks of the trade' that could help you capture a shot like this more easily.

Thanks for any suggestions or advice; A.net,
again, Nice  bigthumbsup  shot Bruno.

Indeed, go wide, then crop! Also, take an awful lot in sequence and pick the best.

Sssshh! That's enough secrets out the bag!  Wink

When you guys say to 'shot wide, then crop'; you mean to stand a good distance from your shooting objective (aircraft) and shot a picture with lots of dead space all around then crop the souroundings to eliminate all of the dead space around the a/c?!!!

Luke,
you can shoot wide and crop but that comes with a price. The more you crop the more quality will go with it. Of course most of us crop the image to some extent because most of the time it needs to be leveled, but try to fill the frame as much as possible - get the plane close to the edges of the frame leaving yourself enough play to level the shot and with minimal cropping.

Aw, come on! Shooting wide and cropping in? Unless you're aiming for a certain effect in the photograph, nothing beats full frame for a standard aircraft shot. It does take skills to become good at, especially with fast moving objects. Practice!  Smile

Just to add, I agree with the comments from Fly747 and Je89w.

Yes, one can go wide but I wouldn't expect the 'margin of safety' to be excessive.
