Boston Photography?

Wed Aug 15, 2001 11:09 pm

Can anyone here provide me with any suggestions for getting good photos at BOS? I already posted one for this on the general aviation form, but may be this is a better place ... Heres my original post:

At Boston Logan airport, go to Terminal B. There is a 5 or 6 level parking lot. Go to the top (no roof) and go to the corner of the parking lot that is closest to the runways. This is good viewing for taxing,takeoffs and landings. Also, if you drive north from the airport - Rt 1, and take the exit for Winthrop, and follow this road - follow it around until you get to see the airport runways across the waterway. One of the runways used by Logan goes right over Winthrop. The jets come in pretty low. Good viewing here as well.

Thanks for the info. Are there any specific spots to stop at around this Winthrop area? Do post if you can ...

I am guessing this photo is also from there?

One thing you have to ask yourself is what kind of shots do you want to take or do you simply want to watch a/c landing and taking off.
If you want to have the same boring shots all over the place, go to Parking Garage on top of Terminal B.....

Check out the lastest upload by a Boston local, I don't want to use names, as it is against the policy of a.net.....see for yourself all taken on top of PG Terminal B......boring as hell if you ask me....

http://www.airliners.net/search/photo.search?countrysearch=USA%20-%20Massachusetts&placesearch=Boston+-+General+Edward+L.+Logan+International+(BOS)&distinct_entry=true

Anyhow.....taste is subjective and some people may like this view.....NW,UA, CO rotating off Rwy 22R...

I personally don't like it at all, but a.net is a place for everyone....

So to answer your questions......there are many many places to watch planes coming into Logan....

It all depends on the wind......

most of the time we either hv north west or north east wind....

Rwy 33L or 4 R would be in use for landing
Rwy 27 or 4R or 9 would be in use for take off

If we have southwest wind....

Arrivals are on 27 and 22L
Departure are on 22R and 22L

Around the airport there are some good spot, like Constitution Beach, East Boston.....

Have fun looking

p.s. Bring the longest lens you can 500mm plus........

Paul why should I?

It was said many times not to critisize someones work on a.net, even though I am trying to obey the rules I still wanted to point it out to the general public.
Sometimes you have to leave the last detail out, makes it a little bit more interesting.

If someone wants to find out, he or she can check the link and then they know the name.....

Infact, I likes James' work a lot.

All his shots are very clear,sharp and full of colour. I mean, if you don't like this

Good question, let's start a nice discussion and totally get off topic......

So tell me, is it ok or not?

I am certainly always open for suggestions and constructive critisism, that is a bit missing on this site....don't we all learn from different opinions.

Mark Garfinkel was one of the photographers on this site who inspired me and I hv studied his work and learned a lot. Same with othes like Craig Murray. Then of course your own termination and dedication comes into place.

I remember about 2 years ago....There was one of these discussions about quality etc.....someone named 3 of my shots and posted them and said these should not be here for this and that reason.........

Me being proud of my early work was shocked but others dissagreed and told that guy that the shots belong on a.net......

I have learned a lot in the past couple of years, it was all about information, feedback I got. Positive or negative.

I know I know this is Johan's site and he makes the rules and one of this rule is not to critisize others people work.

I did do with the early post but not directly.

Nevertheless you hv to ask yourself.......do I really want to take 100 pics from the same vantage point with just a different a/c?
Oh yes I forgot there is a puffy cloud in this picture.
This makes it a hell of a lot different from the other.

I don't think so. Quantity over Quality.....hmmm, makes me think.
I choose Quality over Quantity any day of the year.

I also know that everyone is entitled to an opinion and yours maybe different than mine, but why is it not possible to raise your voice and discuss this point in a nice and open discussion?

We are all grown ups, at least most of us......

Just my 0.02 cents

To make one thing clear. I don't said I don't like all his work.

The night shots are certainly state of the art.
Sharp, crisp and clear, cannot get better than that. Great work, James


but the 22R roatation shots are just a bit boring.

There are so many other locations to take great pics at Boston.........On top of it the parking at Terminal B is wicked expensive.

Flame me, that is fine. Is is just my opinion.

Vasco,

My you get very defensive  Wink/being sarcastic

Im just pointing out that if you criticise a photographers work by not naming him but describing his work its exactly the same as naming him or posting his picture. To give you an example if i said "there are these shots from Boston where the aircraft are somtimes secondary to the whole shot and well there really boring" then it doesnt take too much time to work out who the photographer is?

The only reason I bought it up is its the second time I have read one of your posts where you have said about boring shots from Boston from the same photographer. I dont know the photographer in question but didnt think it was fair to critise his work in the way that you did.

Hi all

Now that Josh has got info on his vantage points, maybe it is time to let the thread go before it gets out of hand.
