So what’s your angle?

By: Category: FriendsPHXUncategorized

About 2 years ago I picked up my first DSLR camera, and took it to one place I knew that I would get the most use and enjoyment out of it. So I hoped in my truck and headed to  Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (KPHX) and started clicking the shutter button on my Nikon D3000. There was not a care in the world about how my photos were going to turn out.  I just wanted to capture every aircraft that I saw on my camera. It was just over a year, when I decided to take my aviation photography more seriously. With the cost of gas going up, it was harder to get out to the surrounding Airports across the valley. That is when I decided to make all my photos count.  Now don’t get me wrong I still take a massive amount of photos when I go out spotting. But now when taking photos I know what kind of photo that I am going for.  I really like the photos when it shows just the front section of the aircraft to include the cockpit. I can not explain why I like these types of photos compared to others that I  have taken. I know a few photographers that will not take a photo of a Cessna unless they can get a nice prop blur. Now this is just a example, every aviation photographer has his or her own preference. Don’t get me wrong, if I get a chance to take a photo of a aircraft I wont walk away until I get what I am looking for.
