Hi,

I have an upcoming trip, just wanted to know what maybe the best settings when shooting out of the window? I own a Canon T2i, 18-55mm IS lens.

Thanks

Mohammed

Mohammed,

Your question is impossible to answer as settings are dependant upon the light on the day. There are no right or wrong settings. It also depends on the type of window you're shooting through as the extra glass will dictate the quality of the light, photo and any may have a tint (colour cast). Just apply usual photographic rules and you should get the best you can.

Thanks for the reply, just thought there were specific settings.

I'll see what I capture and hopefully some quality shots

Never.. Though using something like f/8 is always beneficial - you want a big depth of field to capture the wing and whatever the background is. More importantly is your seating position and time of day as you want the sun behind you for most shots or the glare and reflections from the multiple panes get annoying.



It's all about the destination AND the journey.

Make sure to shoot in RAW. Most airport windows have a tint and it's much easier correct the ensuing color issues with a RAW editor than trying to correct the issue manually.

Great tips! Yes I hope to have the sun behind to have it lit up only can pray having Somme empty seats on both sides.

Thanks again everyone

You can do more than that. Investigate in what direction you will (probably) be taking off, flying and landing, and ask a seat on the shadow side of the plane.
