  • Go to the airport to Spot or take photos ??

    Well as Master Unmuth seems to think I only take shots for uploading to the internet I would like to ask the following.

    When you go to the airport do you always bring your camera or do you sometimes just go to spot ?.

    Me for example, I went to Shenzhen in early Nov and have not even used my camera since then. I've been to the airport at least three times but just felt like spotting.

    Thats called a love of aviation, not just a love of uploading pictures Mr. Unmuth [img]naughty.gif[/img]

      Experienced something once. Was on my local airport (without camera), when a scandinavian helicopter made a fuel stop there. It was a very small company and still haven't figured out why it was in the Netherlands. Anyway I hadn't my camera, so I could hit myself.

      Now I always take my camera when I go to an airport.

        Hkg,

        I suspect he was making a very different point that. One that you have failed to understand.

          I always have my cameras with me when I am visiting an airport. Even on business trips there's always at least a digital with me. This does not mean that I am always taking photos, but it's good to know that the camera sits in the bag in case it is needed.

          Regards,
          Peter

            There are times I put the camera away back into the bag...just to get back to the more relaxed nature of watching..but to go to the airport and not bring the camera is to invite many rare visitors, incidents, situations etc. Murphy's Law. [img]nod.gif[/img]

            always bring your camera...

                Actually, BigPhilNYC and I were just talking about that.

                We went to the LGA terminal this past Thursday and sat in one of the bars and sunk back a few drinks while watching planes land on 22 and takeoffs on 31 and 13. Now that was great spotting. The waitresses were hot and so were the jets.

                Most of the time though, I have a camera with me but only use it 50% of the time, kinda like cicadajet said. But it seems that I am the only person that really likes shooting video! So I usually have videocam with me and wait for some good stuff, then turn it on and roll film.

                I like shooting images but also like to revel in the SOUND and SIGHT of that bird that flies over. [img]clap.gif[/img]
                Witness the miracle of flight.

                  Thats sounds cool Mirrodie [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                  I have a friend on Airliners.net, photographer Paul Paulsen. He takes his sons to the airport sometimes, and they like to film the action. It's pretty cool because then Paul takes pics and his son has the same action on video [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                  I'm still waiting to see the awesome video he took of the Polar 744 going around at 50ft over the runway [img]nod.gif[/img] [img]nod.gif[/img]

                    I take the camera to the airport every day I go. I write down each tail that I shoot, as I am a fleet collector. Am thinking of digital sometime in the near future.

                    I sincerely hope each of you have a wonderful holiday, however you celebrate, and have a great & prosperus New Year! Cheers!

                            Well, I used to go with my binos just to watch, but now that I have my camera, I guess I'll be taking more pictures [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
