Back in June, I visited Newark Airport for the second time to spot there. The first time was back in May, and I was pretty underwhelmed. There are obstructions everywhere, it was cloudy, the distances were really far, and the traffic was essentially just United. I didn’t even make a topic for that because I didn’t really like the photos.
However, this time was different. Newark Airport really comes alive when the sun comes out because it lights up the colorful background of shipping containers and cranes.
The great part of spotting at bigger airports is that there’s so much traffic that you can make some really dumb decisions pertaining to the settings at which you shoot, exemplified below.
Honestly, I don’t even know if this counts as a pan but there’s a little bit of background movement so I’m throwing it in here.
Too bad it was cloudy but this is indeed a plane.
Probably could’ve gone lower but I got scared, oops.
This is the most Newark shot I’ve ever seen.
Might want to fix your paint United.
Taking thirty photos in sequence for just one or two to be sharp, that’s panning life.
Some sun would be cool. But this is me so I’m not surprised.
This is probably the best pan I’ve ever done, no Topaz needed.
Crop sensor problems.
I didn’t even look at this sequence after I shot it because I was like there’s no way I hit anything.
Check out my Instagram. Or don’t.
