Aviation Photos 3

This is a continuation from Aviation Photos 2.

In the Air, Sea of Japan

With the sun just peeking over the horizon, this Airbus A340-500 makes its long trek from Los Angeles to Singapore, a journey in excess of 18 hours. Singapore Airlines pioneered commercial ultra long haul routes with the launch of the Los Angeles service in 2004. Its other direct destination is Newark which currently holds the record for the world's longest scheduled commercial flight.

Ms S, your photos really inspire me to go take some lessons. I wonder how you shoot the "Sea of Japan". It has to be thru the airplane window, and how to achieve your effect? Its so clear!

Cat - Just go get a Digital SLR and go out to shoot, I don't think lessons are necessary. Do a bit of reading online, find a couple of photographers whose works you like and study them. A lot can be garnered through observation.

Shooting out of airplane windows works best when you start shooting when the sun is low on the horizon. So sunset or sunrise times are best. And shoot with the sun on your back or else you get a ton of reflection on the window glass. Guess you can photoshop them away but always easier to start with a cleaner image.
