Los Angeles (KLAX) Spotting - With @Matt737 on 12/8/18 (Morning Shots)

Spotting at Los Angeles International Airport with @Matt737 (Morning Shots and Tutorial)

It’s been over 6 months since my last spotting topic, and believe me, I am ready to make a comeback with these great images. For this trip, I rented a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens to help me capture crisp and sharp photographs. We took a late night flight to LAX, spent the night, and woke up early the next morning to start early. In this topic, I’m going to show you my favorite shots with the settings I used.

Gear I Brough With Me:

  • Canon EOS Rebel T5
  • Canon EOS 80D
  • Canon 75-300mm Lens
  • Canon 100-400mm Lens

All of these pictures are worthy of being shown.

I chose the ones that must absolutely be shown on this thread. If it goes a little over 10 who cares…

No photo has to absolutely be shown. It is the rule, you gotta respect it. 2 photos over is 20% of the total, which isn’t “a little”.
