Waiting For Take Off

Waiting For Take Off

Early morning flights are always a good time to get some shooting in. The image was shot at ISO 4000 but used some tools to remove it and did some color correction. The sky was that color since it was the weird hour between dark and dawn. Used my Ricoh GR to get the shot and felt good to be shooting with it again. Enjoy.

Fly By Night

Fly By Night

Points if you get the title reference! Trying to take a night photo on a camera that only opens up to 2.8 while moving at several hundred miles is a bit tough but I gave it the old college try. Neither image is perfect and its why I dropped the sizing down to 1000 pixels to hide the flaws that show up when you go bigger. Its more about the overall image effect versus one detail in them. The first image…

Plane Fun

Plane Fun

I shared one image from the plane show I went to which was the Japanese plane. I shot a bit more but I wasn’t in a position to process them as I was on travel and forgot to bring a mouse which makes masking a bit of a pain without it. I wanted to shoot the planes differently then just the normal. I have a think for airplane engines in that I like the symmetry of them so I took…

The Empty Feeling

The Empty Feeling

I shot this after waking up at 4 AM for a 6:50 AM flight into Atlanta.  We landed some time around 8:30 and for terminal we came into it was still quiet.  Considering I had a 3.5 hour layover I just took my time with my Ricoh GR and was walking through.  I saw this guy just sitting at an empty gate and fired the shot.  I was going to leave it color but I hit black and white in…

Feeling Expansive

Feeling Expansive

More from what is becoming my daily walks.  I felt like using the 16×9 crop for all these since they just felt more natural that way.  The Ricoh GR and the mighty Canon 330HS were used and its obvious to tell which is which.  The interesting thing with the Canon versus say the Olympus is I have a hard time telling them apart unless I look at the image names.  The Ricoh having a standard APS-C sensor which is larger than…

Deus Ex Machina – Part 1

Deus Ex Machina – Part 1

I like fiddly bits and mechnical stuff.  This is really why I went to the Udvar-Hazy Museum.   Just to shoot this stuff.  I have every intention of shooting it in black and white so if you aren’t into the mechanical you might want to move on.  To quote one of my favorite comedians who is Scottish so you must say this in a Scottish (Glaswegian for those of you from that area), “Its complete crap but I like it”.

Flew home yesterday and had the trusty Canon ELPH 330HS on me (along with a selection of other cameras) but I like the ease of it instead of hauling out a bigger one from my bag.  While I took some Lightroom liberties these are straight out of the camera jpegs.  If you are willing to fiddle with some settings for your shot its a damn fine camera.

Flying the Stormy Skies

Flying the Stormy Skies

I know, it seems like I have only been in airports the last few days but I also shot some other things.  The airport stuff is kinda cool in that you get some dramatic views if you take the time to look out the window.  This was shot while waiting for the flight home.  That was a typical south west Florida storm that is furious rain for about an hour and then gone.  When I touched down in gloomy Virginia…
