Hello IFC after getting T8i over the holidays I finally got a chance to use it! While sitting in my living room in the mountains I heard Lifeguard 2 take off from the hospital and thought I might as well go over and try getting some photos of it during its operations. This photo shoot was a challenge because I never knew quite when it would be out on the pad or flying due to the weather.
Canon 850D (T8i)
Canon 18-55mm Lens
Summit County Medical Center parking lot
After 2 attempts I finally managed to catch it on the pad
Shutter Speed: 1/100
While on my way back up to the pad after lunch I started to hear the thump of a helicopter starting and saw the rotors start turning luckily I made it just in time to see it hover and depart.
Shutter Speed: 1/60
After quickly switching my camera settings for a in flight photo I managed to get this photo.
Shutter Speed: 1/250
After getting a notification from ADSB exchange that it was inbound I went out 1 last time to catch my first night photo with the camera.
Shutter Speed: 1/15
Thank you for reading this topic I hope you enjoyed the photos and before anyone asks yes I made sure that there was not a victim on board before taking photos of the helicopter and made sure to stay out of the way of the crew.
And one last thing which was the best?
- Photo 1
- Photo 2
- Photo 3
- Photo 4
*Edit should I print these out and give them to the crews?
