  • Spotting from home allowed?

    Hello! I'm a little unsure of whether "backyard" shots are allowed or not since you generally need to specify a location, I looked at the guidelines and couldn't find anything directly related to it. Reason I ask is I frequently have helicopters/GA flyover at ~1,000 ft. which isn't a problem for my 600mm lens. Thanks in advance to any responses!

    I think it doesn't really matter that you spot from home as long as the photos you take are good enough to be uploaded here


    Please ignore the "document write" things, I don't know how to get rid of them

      Of course you can! Ive done so myself as well. Make sure the photo is up to standards (especially sharpening and vignette-wise since those two can be problems when pointing the camera straight up with fast-moving and small helis.)

      There is no limitation as to from "where" you can upload a photo - If you take an aircraft in a field in the middle of nowhere, you can still upload. It can even be in the middle of a city if you want to and you find an aircraft there.

      To upload shots like those: Select-other Location and specify. For example, if you live sufficiently close to the airfield / airport (next door essentially) - upload as if the picture is directly shot there (using airport code in autofill)

      If not, upload the other location as the City or town you are in.

      Here, a few examples:

      1. Photo taken from my home (home-spotting) (far away from the airport): https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/10348177
      (Uploaded as: Other Location - Mexico City)

      2. Photo taken 1km away from an airfield, but not exactly there: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/10015793
      (Uploaded as if at the airport with a message)

      3. Photo taken inside a 4 floor shopping mall in the buisness district: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9626473
      (Uploaded as Other location - City)

      4. Photo taken near the city center: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9921130
      Same as 3....


      You get the idea hopefully!

        Thanks for the replies, I'll definitely try to get some of my backyard shots onto Jetphotos!

          Hello!

          I shots most of the aircrafts from home.
          As Santiago MN said, you can take photos from everywhere.

          Here is the examples for about that :

          I wish you a good day...

            You’re lucky to live somewhere you have that good a view. My last parish was near an airforce base; I loved the jetblast sound.
