So today, very early in the morning, I went plane spotting at SCEL for the first time… ever. It was my first time using a camera instead of a phone or something, and that was very noticeable in my results. I cought most traffic inbound at SCL in the morning. However, as this was my first time spotting with a camera and outside of an airport, 90% of my photos either had terrible focus or was generally very bad. However, as I took 150 pictures, that 10% I think are OK. There definitely is a lot of room for improvement, but as this was such a nice experience, I will definitely repeat it. From now on, the quality and hopefully quantity of pictures will only go up. Keep in mind that the pictures aren’t in any particular order.
This is when I would tell you to click for full resolution, however even if you click the resolution won’t be too good.

That’s all! As I already mentioned, I took about 150 pictures and most of them were really bad quality, but if you want any specific plane don’t hesitate to ask. Again, from now on the quality of these spotting pictures will only increase.
