USA007's spotting thread: New Photos

As some of you know I am a part time professional photographer. Most of my expertise are in portraits, landscape, nature, animal, and astrophotography. I invested a few months ago in a new camera and lens to branch out into Plane spotting and finally have arrived home to the US where my gear was waiting. I went for my first spotting trip to Orlando International Airport. This thread with be my spotting thread as i begin flight school in the ATP fast track program in February and will be visiting many airports with my studies and having some apron access to take some photos. This is my first time with plane spotting so in my opinion my photos are not as high quality as my standards are. Also not that these photos are edited for color correction and in some edited for creative purposes.

Cool shots! Although you have a big space to improve, work on the ISO and the brightness, because the shots are bit dark, other than that , well done!

Great shots!! That Southwest 737-800 is GORGEOUS!!

Any reason why the brightness is so low?

Awesome shot of Blueprint. That’s my all time favorite livery right there!

I tried re-editing a few of them.


If you’re ever in Denver…

Not the most variety unfortunately, but, there is fantastic other photography that will make it worth while.

Im still learning that is why and had the light metering set to evaluative metering instead of single point metering. I will do better the next.
