I think the reason someone may think it is fake is due to the mixed flash/natural light...The photographer popped off a flash to illuminate the cockpit controls and exposed for the land...Nice job..

i did JOHAN. dont assume.

see, it does not make sense. all those different airlines, all from the right seat. so that eliminates him being a pilot. (unless he bounces from airline to airline) if he was, i wouldnt wanna fly on his aircraft knowing the pilot was taking pictures when he should be concentrating on landing. what happend to "you must now put away all electronic devices?"

also, he has a few from united. now, we all know that airlines from the US do not allow visits in the cockpit.

plus, i can do this exact same thing in photoshop.

just one persons opinion.

There is no reason to assume that the Captain took this shot. It is possible to shoot this over the pilot's shoulder whilst sitting in the jumpseat.

No opinion here. But assuming it is real, how the heck does one shoot using both flash and natural light like Mark G. described?? I wouldnt mind learning that, it would obviously make for some sweet shots.  

Thanks!

It also seems like an interesting mix of aircraft. Not sure if a pilot would be able to upgrade his ride at that rate.

Chris, it is not difficult to balance interior flash expousure with the outside. With today's auto everything flashes, it's very simple. Back in the prehistoric days of manual flashes, namely the Vivitar 285HV, I became rather proficient in this area.

If you have one of the Nikon SB flashes, then you have an advantage, these are true marvels of flash technology. I suggest you check you flash users manual, or pick up one of the Magic Lantern Guides pertaing to your particular flash. Being a Canon user myself, I feel that this is one area that Canon has really dropped the ball. Our Speedlights are poor in comparision to those of Nikon's.

Not Fake : Info On Photographer

Fri Nov 10, 2000 4:40 am

The pilot who took these photos, whose real name is known to me as we have corresponded several times, is listed in the AVWeb Airman Database as holding the following certificates:
- Airline Transport Pilot
- Flight Engineer
His ratings are:
Single Engine Land
Multi Engine Land

That info was current as of 2Q98, the last time that database was updated.

The photographer also maintains a personal website on the net, where he has posted all the photos seen on Airliners.net, as well as some others, including one taken by another member of the cockpit crew showing him at the controls of an obviously in-flight aircraft.

He has assured me that the co-pilot is always in full control of the aircraft at any time that a photo from the left seat is taken.

I trust this now puts this matter to rest .....

I've seen "Jake" before. We were on different flights, but we both departed SFO on 5/29/00 at the same time. If "Jake" was who I thought (and talked to) he's real.

He flew Shuttle planes, then went to UA's Airbusses, and now on the 76. Pretty logical to me...

Maybe people here need to stop ASSUMING things.

Hi Chris, like I said so do I . Depending on which model flash you have, it is still fairly easy to get this type of shot. I have the 540EZ, I normally use the flash with an off camera cord, in this case Canon's off-camera shoe cord 2, turn the camera on to Program, Full Auto, or if I am feeling really adventurous (and if I have the luxury of time)..manual. I often bounce the light off a card or a Lumiquest pocket bouncer, to achieve a more natural effect.

I know it sounds complicated, but once you start doing it on a regular basis, it almost becomes 2nd nature.

Good luck,

Thomas
