What's Your Favorite Point Of View?

Thu Apr 07, 2005 11:41 am

The kind of shots I like I do not see many here are ones where the plane's landing gear or engine is in the foregrouns and the rest of the plane in the background, particularly looking from the winng tip into the center of the plane with the wing overhead... Big grin

Any view that makes the plane look bigger than it does.

I love nose shots but unfortunately there isn't much areas in Sydney for a good nose view shot

Those at DEN and AMS get the best nose shots of a/c turning onto the active. Love those!

Thanks,

My personal favourite is that moment when the plane is just about to leave the runway or has just touched down, with the mains on the ground but the nosewheel still in the air. I especially appreciate lots of smoke coming from the tires and condensation in the engines.

You know the gear is up and locked when it takes full throttle to taxi to the terminal.

Personally I like a shot taken from around 85-90 degrees (almost side on) and I'm not fussy if aerial or on taxi/take off, as long as it is as close to full frame as I can get it.. As a rego and livery collector I like to have it in it's entirity or for my purposes it is a waste of time.

When I get sick of the usual angles and want something different I get a shot inside the hangar from above, preferably above the tail looking forward (but also from the side); or sometimes I lie in front of the nose out on the tarmac. In both cases I use my 28mm lense. I also sometimes take a head-on shot using a long zoom.
