Award Winning Advertising and Editorial Aviation Photography

Aviation Imagery

This aviation image of a Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 was shot using a Canon digital camera and a 400mm f2.8 Canon lens with a 1.4 extender. With the jet engines running, plus at this time of day it is close to 80 degrees, the tarmac is heating up giving the mirage shimmer. The long focal length of 560mm, compresses the field and helps to separates the plane visually from the background by having a narrow depth of field, or in other words, having a limited area that is in focus.

The gear: A Canon camera set at 100 ISO, 1/2000 second shutter speed and a Canon 400mm f2.8 with a 1.4 extender giving an effective f stop of f4, mounted onto an O'Connor motion picture fluid head sitting on wood sticks.
