Good day,

I am not 100% sure if this is the right section for this topic, but maybe some one can help me.

I am wanting to start Spotting, but not sure what equipment (other than a camera) I would need.

Also any other information I might need would be great

thanks


Cheers;

And a buttload of editing software and patience because it takes forever to get something up to what the screeners want. I still haven't gotten anything submitted yet because I simply don't have the equipment.

You will need plenty of that   But if you get it right and keep at it, believe me it is worth it

You don't even need a camera to start spotting. Just your eyes.

(I don't consider Spotting the same as Photographing....and personally, I've never kept a log or anything, outside of the photos I take)

For photography, you don't NEED anything other than a camera and a computer (for digital). What other equipment you get depends on your goals.

If by "buttload" you mean one program, then yes. Patience is certainly required, both when taking photos and when editing them. Once you figure it out, though, it gets faster and faster.

Out of curiosity, what equipment do you possess?

It's very sad to see everyone in here only taking photos for the pleasure of A.Net. Remember that one day A.Net will close. It can be tomorrow or in 10 years, but it will. Every site will one day, of different reasons. Don't be an A.Net photographer. Be a planespotter. Don't planespot only to get photos up here, because sometimes the screeners can be really out of this world. And that's not what's good.

I don't mean that the screeners don't do a great job, because they do. But they dont accept wonderful photos, only good photos.

What I want to say is that it's so much more than this site. You need to enjoy planespotting, don't only do it to get many photos here. But sure, A.Net is really nice, I can't say anything else.

In my eyes you need a "good" camera and a really good lens. What's the budget of yours? Good luck!

Wow, you hit it right on the head! Now I don't have to write all that! LOL

Personally, I would get at least a scanner to listen to the communications, it will be invaluable to you when it comes to knowing what planes are being granted landing or takeoff clearances

what I take with me:
camera(Nikon D90 with D70s body as a backup, they use the same batteries)
lenses(Nikkor 55-200mmVR, Nikkor 70-300mmVR, Sigma 150-500mm)
bincoulars
Scanner with extra batteries
lens cleaning cloth
air blower to blow dust off lens surfaces
a portfolio of my work(as well as business cards) to show to the authorities(and other spotters) that sometimes show up
food and drinks(a cooler for all-day excursions)
sunblock and insect repellant(I got two ticks on me at the airport this summer and they were disgusting little things)

Question:

In a thread where both the thread starter and the replies (with one exception) don't mention shooting for A.net, why do you choose to post how sad it is that everyone's shooting for A.net? Even PHX787's reply doesn't indicate that he shoots solely for A.net. But, you know, the thread is posted in an A.net forum....it's not a horribly illogical conclusion on PHX787's part to think the OP was at least partially speaking about the site.

Now, I could sit here and say:

"It's very sad when people know exactly what's coming in, and go to specifically shoot certain aircraft of certain airlines. There's no element of surprise! Don't be a selective planespotter. Be a planespotter!"

But really, why do I care? Oh yeah, I don't. Shoot what you want, when you want, where you want, why you want, how you want. That is ALL that matters. For me personally, I don't really want a scanner (though I'm sure I'd use it if I had one). I still like the element of surprise. I'm sure I miss stuff that others with scanners don't. But obviously that doesn't work for everyone.

Shooting for A.net doesn't either....but for some it probably does. And I don't see why anyone else should care.

Anyway, this is all just the opinion of another cynical guy on A.net. Feel free to tune me out.  

All I take when I go spotting:

Camera
Lenses
Sometimes some gum
Sometimes a Gatorade

That's about it....

Wow, you don't at any point get me. What I'm saying is that being a planespotter isn't the same thing as having photos on Airliners. PHX787 wrote that you need patience to be a planespotter, and I just wonder, patience for what? To look or take photos of airplanes? No, you maybe need patience to get photos up here, but you don't always need patience to be a planespotter.

You can shoot for A.net, or you can shoot for yourselves. Or you can shoot for both. But if you shoot just for A.net, don't expect to get the full enjoyment potential out of your hobby. Some of us round here were shooting aircraft well before the advent of digital photography and A.net - and managed just nicely - so I speak from experience.

I understood that perfectly. My point was no one said it was the same. But all that matters is if you're having fun, not whether others consider you a planespotter or not.

If your hobby is shooting for A.net, I'm not sure how you couldn't get the full enjoyment out of it.

That's like someone telling me that I don't get the full enjoyment from driving my car because I never rode a horse to work. It's not better or worse - just different.

I could say that people who like shooting mostly sunny side-ons aren't getting the full enjoyment out of their hobby.

There is a difference between a hobby and a compulsive obsession to get photos uploaded here. It's none of my business who does which but one is much more frustrating than the other. Getting people involved in the hobby purely to shoot for the likes of A.net is not something I would actively encourage.

You'll find a lot of people who only unpload sunny side-ons here; 'here' being the emphasis. It's just too frustrating for many trying to upload ground-breaking creatives, only to have them slated at the last hurdle because a winglet is (unavoidably) slightly soft.

I will admit, however, that if A.net and digital is all you've ever known (and it isn't all bad), there isn't much to compare it to.

I still think that, by shooting solely for this site, there are huge chunks of the hobby you're going to remain oblivious to.

I agree, but as you hinted at, it's not my place to judge who does which. And uploading here can be a hobby, and not a compulsive obsession. Just as shooting airplanes without uploading can be a compulsive obsession, rather than a hobby.

I wasn't really talking about uploading; I've seen you mention several times that you like to shoot sunny side-ons, so that was the reference. Nothing wrong with that, of course, and no offense intended.

Absolutely. But no one, ever, will manage to expose himself/herself to every single possible facet of a hobby.

Anyway, getting way off the point here (not that I mind a good discussion). I don't really disagree with anything you said; I just take umbrage at people being labeled as "A.net photographers" when the labeler does not know whether that's actually the case. Why come into someone's thread about getting started in photography, just to insert some negative commentary? I don't get it.

But obviously that doesn't work for everyone.

I do both 'selective' planespotting and 'regular' planespotting, if there even is such a distinction. To me, a scanner adds to the enjoyment of spotting, it doesn't detract from it. You feel more 'connected' to what's going on, if that makes sense. It's not like hearing "Slovokian Government 1234 cleared to land runway 22L" diminishes the excitement of seeing the Tu-154 pass in front of your eyes. Also, have you ever been standing there, badly needing a bathroom break, but afraid to go inside the nearby restaurant for fear that a special livery or type would be missed? Or witnessed a go-around and wondered what happened? Or maybe you were trying to catch the first Singapore A380 arriving into JFK last January and needed to know whether they were getting vectors for 22L or 31R so that you had time to get into position? Not to mention the humor you sometimes hear in the communications.

I started shooting in the film era, when all the tech we had were scanners. Now, everytime I meet up with other spotters, several have smartphones and tablets with apps like planefinder and flightaware, and some use ACARS decoding. They know what's coming and going almost down to the second. My first reaction was like yours, that there would be no more surprises. However, on a recent afternoon as we waited for the Quantas boxing kangaroo that the technology had told us was coming from LAX, when it came into view and there was no boxing kangaroo on the side of the airplane, we stood there dumbfounded. Surprise! Turns out boxing went mx @ LAX and they subbed one of their regular birds in. I'm not a smartphone guy, personally I like having just the scanner. And besides, when you hear the scanner say "Southwest 1234 cleared to land" it isn't like it's saying "cleared to land, Southwest 1234, the Shamu plane"

Photoshop Elements can be had straight up retail for less than $100. I'm sure one could find deals on it at times. Elements and Apple Aperture are all I have ever used for photo editing.

Compared to the prices of photo equipment, seems reasonable.

I've taken plenty of bathroom breaks while spotting. Usually not much of an issue, as you can see the airplanes far enough out to have an idea what's coming. If not, then you still have a 50% chance it'll be WN (if shooting at the In'n'Out). 

Like I said before, I'd probably use a scanner if I had it. And I'm sure I would appreciate it. I was just using it as an example - I'm not against them or anything.

I can understand what you are talking about, however this is not for A.net....I have two kids a 2 year old and a 10 year old, I work in the military with a bunch of children and I need to get out. Since I love aircraft, and I have used a few pictures on A.net as screen savers/backgrounds etc I thought it would be nice to get out and get some pictures of my own. Gives me a chance to relax, get some fresh air and most of all get some nice shots of aircraft coming in and out of the airport and/or during military excersies.

Which Canon camera do you have?

$1000 will easily buy you a good lens. If you play your cards right, it will buy you two good lenses. My suggestion is to buy used. Figure out what focal lengths and such you need first, though. No point in wasting money on a lens you can't really use!

You could benefit from doing some research online as to good spotting locations at your local airport. Here at YYJ there are a few nice places to sit and watch aircraft come in. Half aren't really useful for photography planes (i.e. position of the sun, distance from the landing zone) but there are some nice scenic places to sit and wait (the real patience part of spotting at a small airport) for the airplanes to come in.

What airport do you want to spot at?

I have used scanners for many years in Canada with no problems. Even when the airport RCMP or security stop by to chat I have it in my hand or pocket, they sometimes listen in for a bit for fun before moving on, so you should have no problems with a scanner.

You know thats a good question...let me check...its a Cannon Rebel XS. So I am hoping its a good one.

That's the camera I used for my first ~290 photos on here. It was sharp as hell, for aviation photos and otherwise, especially when paired with high-quality lenses. It's light on features (understandably, being Canon's cheapest DSLR), and didn't have the best color saturation and such, but it's a good little camera.



"Two and a Half Men" was filmed in front of a live ostrich.
