Night Spotting at KPHX

By: Category: Uncategorized

After dropping a friend off at Sky Harbor, I decided to take a minute to snap some photos from Terminal 4. Shooting at night is completely different from daytime. With daylight, it’s a lot easier to capture the image you want, with night, a whole new set of challenges arise. With some photos taking up to 30 seconds to capture, everything has to go right in order to make that perfect shot. A steady tripod is a must and a wireless shutter release could also be a big help (I found that out the hard way). Although I didn’t get many usable photos, I definitely enjoyed the new experience and I plan on making more night trips out to Sky Harbor in the near future! Story and Photos by: Kyle BoydRead More

Arizona Aviation Night Photography at Sky Harbor Airport

By: Category: FriendsPHXRoad trips

A couple of weeks back some members of PHXSpotters met out at Sky Harbor International Airport at Terminal 4 on the top deck. When we arrived we unpacked our tripods and started hitting that shutter button. I have always been afraid of taking night time photos, since I had never experienced doing night time aviation photography. I was not sure how my photos were going to turn out. I was thankful that we have some very talented photographers in our group.  They were able to get me set up and teach me the proper settings to doing night time photography at KPHX. The location that we had picked was on the North East corner of Terminal 4.  The North side of the terminal is mostly US Airways and on the South side is Southwest Airlines...Read More
