Zoomed Out Shots

Fri Feb 27, 2004 4:51 am

I love shots that are kinda zoomed out and taken from a slightly higher level than the runway.

I am ALL ABOUT backgrounds. I think all the different kinds of framing that cna be done with a plane alone has been done already, and the true pioneership in still aviaiton photography all has to do with what is behind or around the plane.

This is why I fell in love with my dock, where I get these shots (sorry for the plug):

These shots are not common popular photos to me though. Whenever you look at the most popular shots over the previsou day, you always see cabin shots and closeups and stuff. So I was excited when I saw these most recent popular shots. Some really great stuff:

Hi Phil,

I am not a fan of plugging but here I would like to.

I too love this angle/background ever since I shot my own photos like this back in Summer 2003.

You guys are 100% right, these are amazing shots!

Ben...

How much zoom do you need for doing these shots (eg the BA772, AA772...)?
I love them, especially the A330 from MyTravel!

Good work!

regards. Florian

I have shot a lot like this, but rarely upload here for fear of the dreaded baddistance.

Been burned too many times. And not unlike Pavlov's mutt... I've learned.

Luis,

your Swiss MD-83 is a real killer shot, just breathtaking to me... I love it Big grin

All the other shots are stunning as well...

Congrats

Often you'll get a baddistance for such shots, which is unfortunate to me, because they are often great airport overview and aircraft shots in one, or jsut make the overall beauty of the shot so much better.

Luis, that Swiss MD80 shot is amazing.

Although it is not a "down the runway" picture, this has always been one of my favorite zoom shots.

Lauri,

Your shot is absolutley incredible! It's a miracle it's only got 4,000 hits (should be in the 30,000+ range)

Dark backgrounds with direct sun on the aircraft is hard to get, but has great results. Zooming out to catch the 727 on a hazy morning had a cool effect - and you can see the exhaust clearly.

Have I mentioned I love my new Digital Rebel???
