Medium Format Photos From A Recent 777 Trip.

Mon May 20, 2002 4:17 am

Doubt these would be of much use in the database, but wanted to share anyway. It is from a United 777-222ER (N229UA), from Seattle to Tokyo, seat 41J. I was borrowing a friends Ricohflex VI for my trip and decided to start experimenting with the camera on the 10.5 hour (!) flight. It's a great, older (almost 50 yrs. old) twin lens reflex camera. No light meter!

(I included urls in case freezeservers chokes.)

This is why I love flying at 33,000 ft. This was somewhere over the Alaskan Aleutian Islands.

Anyone else have 120 shots?

Friendly Skies is a VERY beautiful picture!! The Wingshot is a bit overexposed, but beautifull none the less. You should try and get them scanned with a proper scanner, it's worth it.!

"Freindly Skies" is way cool. Very artsy and full of commercial potential IMO. You should call it though "Window of Opportunity" since it appears opening up into a very bright situation from a dark and dismal one.

Thanks Wietse and Martin.

The wingshot is indeed overexposed. The frame immediately after it is "properly" exposed, but I actually prefer this one. It conveys what I saw out the window better. Everyone had closed their shade and I was the idiot that flooded the cabin with daylight for the photo. I also think it adds to the "heavenly" feeling one gets at altitude.

Better scans would be great but I don't have access to a decent, medium format scanner (for free). At $25 per hi-res scan from a color house, it'd be to expensive for me.

I agree on your sentiments regarding the wingshot, it DOES look like that up there.

I think the Friendly Skies shot has a lot potential, perhaps that shot does warrant the 25$ for the scan. Some magazines or commercial institutions might want that shot.

I love the wingshot, its beautiful. Friendly skies is good from a photography point of view more than an aviation point of view. I'm not a great fan of the last one, although I wouldn't mind seeing a nice scan of it.

Regards

The links are not valid anymore. They don't like hotlinking I guess. is there any way you can re-post them?

Yeah, looks like hotlinking is a "no-no."

Try cutting and pasting the urls in a new browser window. It should work that way.

I don't really have anywhere else to host them.

Nice. The first one is very artsy. I like the 2nd one. 3rd one, um, well....I dunno.

I love windows shots. I just love looking out the window of the plane period! I'll always carry a camera with me inflight.

BTW, I put all my window shots up in a Webshots album including the ones that don't fit the airliners.net standards but are nevertheless awesome shots. Have a peek...

Wow, these are very artistic images.

I love how you know how to capture the mood. In the first one, it seems to be just a really peaceful shot. The second, heavenly, as mentioned. The third one, I see a "tired" sort of "distant" feeling.

To me, capturing the mood of the setting is what makes impressionable photos. Photos should also show how the photographer personally views a setting in his mind; taking literal details from the surroundings and synthesizing them to what the photographer believes is what he is seeing. Your shots certainly do that.

Bravo!

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

This was an experiment that had many happy accidents. I was basically just learning how to use the camera and came up with these shots. To the younger generation of photographers (which looks like most of the respondents), remember to stay creative and not be afraid of old, low-fi technology. A pinhole camera can give just as aesthetic and cool a photo as a Digital SLR. The most important filmplate is the one in your head. Gear is nothing without an "eye."
