KPDX Spotting 11MAR20

Just another adventure at KPDX.

If anyone has any feedback please let me know. These were shot from a variety of locations using primarily my 5D4 + 100-400+2XIII and cropped much tighter (RE: @HiFlyer) :)


Amazing shots!

Best picture by far, keep up the great work!


My favorite is the business jet soaring out, great snap!
My advice on these is to make sure to clean the dust spots out of your photos. They are clearly visible in the UPS A300 shot. I don’t know which program you use for editing, but usually you can use a ‘clone’ or ‘heal’ tool to get rid of them.

Can’t wait to see more!

Thank you. Touchdowns are much easier to capture with full force on RWY 28L versus 10R. I’m hoping to head back out today but super irritated that I managed to format over my photographs from yesterday evening. Doing night shoots takes so much energy for me and ultimately throwing out 2000 photographs is so disappointing.

This is why we have two card options shat… srsly!

I just made the jump to Lightroom two weeks ago and I am not sure I am entirely comfortable with it yet. That UPS shot definitely shows the issue (I thought it was on my screen… lol) gross

I definitely could use some time cleaning my gear. Thanks for the feedback.

Amazing shots that Southwest Louisiana One is my favorite pic! 🤩

Really cool and stunning pictures! Also a great Southwest special livery. Really well made post, thanks for sharing!

Oh. My. God. That. Is. An. Insane. Setup.


Once again, awesome photos, @shat!

I have a love hate relationship with it at times. It is not always a challenge but seemingly a constant struggle!

I keep my 24-70/2.8, 70-200/2.8; and 100-400/4.5 on me nearly always. Lately I’ve been trying to spend more time in more wide angles 14mm and 16-34 but with much at a stand still it’s a bit blah.

Geeezz lol I have one $650 100-400 and a 45 I keep on me for niche situations

Wow! these are amazing pictures, it’s cool that you caught the Louisiana one. The clouds are nice in the UPS pic, the tire smoke is awesome too!
