Pigs might fly.... again ?

I heard on the radio this evening that the giant inflatable pig used on the Pink Floyd album "Animals" is to be floated again this Monday. Think I might get myself a space on Chelsea bridge :o) continue reading

Photographing at an airshow

Last summer, an airshow took place in my town. So I decided to try this new photographic sector (for me). Few months ago I bought a Sigma 70-300 apo lens. It is a relative cheap lens which entered in my budget but I'm very satisfied with it and at the airshow it worked fine too. I've four images of this event on DT, all with editorial license because sponsors or other banners are on the airplanes. Not much to say about the technique. No tripod, because the exposures were very fast to stop the movement.... continue reading

Easter Travels

Over Easter I upgraded my equipment to a better camera and lense.Travelling from the UK to Germany I had time to experiment - as well as shoot new photographs.Sometimes random ideas are best - as this aircraft wing, coming back after an enjoyable 2 weeks in Germany, I was sitting in the aircraft seeing the empty seats behind me and the view out of the window gave me an idea.So, finishing my sandwich I got up - took my camera, shot some photographs and took a seat again to enjoy my coffee... continue reading

Helicopters and photography

Recently I was lucky enough to get a helicopter ride for free (something that is not at all common here in Switzerland, maybe in the US it's easier), so here are a few pieces of advice in case you get invited to one (or decide to pay for it).- helicopters are rather small, so you may not have the leisure of being able to swap lenses. Stick to one type of shot, or make a tradeoff in quality by using a superzoom lens- ask the pilot what the route will be, so that you know on which side of the... continue reading

Eagles

I love eagles. I am very fortunate to live only a one hour drive from a place where the eagles gather in late fall and early winter to feast on spawning salmon. Harrison Mills, British Columbia is home to literally hundreds of Bald Eagles at this time of year. It is quite a sight to see as many as 60 eagles perched in the same tree! Today I took time off work to go out there and enjoy their beauty; I was treated to an extra special sight...not only lots of Bald Eagles, but also a Golden Eagle.... continue reading

Flying mood

Flying moodLife is always busy in spending, many people are too busy to take into account the scenery around. In fact, whether you work at the time, or in leisure time, who might be good scenery. As long as you pay attention, you bring to the landscape will be relaxed and happy. For example, when you drying clothes, far looked at the blue sky and white clouds drift, you also fly up the mood. continue reading

Aerial Photography 1

Constructing a nice aerial photography needs some basic knowledge that I will share here:Lens:The better lens for aerial photography is the normal lens (50mm in 35mm. photography) this is due to the fact that you are going to be far away and that an angular lens (less than 50mm) is going to show the stuff very small. The other interesting lens is a 100 mm. or even a 150mm. So the normal choice is to shoot with a zoom lens that goes from normal to a short telephoto.Filters:Probably... continue reading
