Nice Air-to-Air Shot

Sun Mar 05, 2006 7:49 am

Hello guys,

I sometimes browse myaviation.net & found this shot quite nice.

With a long lens it looks like they barely escaped a collision.

Speaking of air-to-air shots, I've really enjoyed quite a few recently uploaded.

Yeah,
I always love these kind of shots, because they are so rare, and so hard to photograph.

I couldn't agree more with you Morvious. I've also seen the IB A346 and VS 744 inflight photos, they are great too. The same photographer of the VS 744 mentioned above also has a very nice inflight photo of a BA 777 Big grin

I love air to air photos too. I hope I will be able to take such pictures, but for now I can only dream away.....

The QF one is an amazing pic, and I'd say it's worth a plug here considering how much you wanted one of a company jet:

Hopefully someday I'll be able to try my hand at these types of shots, but until then... pure jealousy!  Wink

Long live the A330!

that JAL one is probably the best air 2 air shot of a passenger aircraft in this database, no 2mm plane and a contrail in your face, no strange/black sky, just a damn good shot which Clay Lacy would be proud of!

sure are awesome shots.
One question for you all...when ever i see a plane i cant focus on it...it very vague. Is that because shooting through pax window is just impossible for air-2-air? (due to the plastic infront of the window first of all)
let me know!

cheers

Nick
p.s i have EF100-400mm 300D and i was unable to focus on the plane.
cheers

Make sure you have the lens on the distant focus setting.
Also use the centre focus point only when shooting through windows as the camera will find it a lot easier to focus in one spot through glass.

Shooting through airplanes windows is a pain in the ass; 95 percent of my shots are out of focus, the longer the focal length the worse (I have the 100-400 as well). So either you are really lucky or you have time to take hundreds of shots until you find a spot in the window through where you can focus. A very frustrating hobby this is  Wink

BTW Thomas, I do not appreciate you showing one of my pics in between all those gems just to make me fell ashamed...

Cheers

No need to be J your shot is on par with those gems in my book.
Always enjoy your shots.
