  • Backlit problem

    I am fairly new to aviation photography and this is my first post on the forum.
    I would appreciate some advice re the following rejection:

    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=745034

    The aircraft was flying directly into the early morning sun, so I was at right angle to the sun. How could I therefore avoid this being backlit and avoid a rejection in the future?

    Thanks for any help

    Try to keep the sun behind you. In this case, if the plane was flying directly into the sun, you should be directly infront of the plane.

      Im affraid the only way to avoid being backlit is to have the sun behind you or have the sun shining on the side of the aircraft you are taking, other wise you get the dreaded backlit rejection.

        Thnaks for that. At this time of the morning there is no way, then, to get a sode-on shot as the aircraft are landing directly into the sun. No fun for the pilot (or the photographer).

          yeah, some airports just have a dreaded layout for photography

          I just had 4 rejections due to backlite, which I totally agree with, just took a chance.

          No chance to be on the other side of the runway. All these shots were taken on the Friday practice, so on Saturday I didn't even bother taking many shots.

          The airport I hang out at everyday is like this, you shoot towards the sun in the afternoon, and the other side of the runway is off limits.(already was arrested)

            Sydney is pretty good with 3 runways, but sometimes when you get an unusual visitor you just have to make the best of the conditions.

            No arrests in Sydney that I know of. IF we stay 3 metres from the perimeter fence, security are normally OK with that.
