Part of me likes it and thinks its cool and the other is crying a bit inside…
So I have determined that like most types of photography, Aviation photography is very hard to get away from just taking another batch of shots that everyone else takes. There are only so many places to be to take your shots, but how you take them and how you use them has to be the easiest way to set apart your work from others »
Um, actually, that's super legit.. Lol
I really enjoy this, but feel a bit guilty for doing so.
It's only the camera manual that says you should not shoot into the sun.. I have never liked the limit of rules anyway..
It is interesting to read that there is a risk of fire for prolonged shots into the sun… That would be quite interesting..
I think it's different and outstanding.
I think it's rather cool
Damn. Cool shot but I hope the sensor isn't toast :/
I think it's Ok +Olav Folland but we will see…
I would shoot a black backdrop to check for burnt pixels. If it passes that you should be good.
There is an IR cut filter in front of the sensor which should block most of the IR light (heat).
+Ian Johnston All Cameras?
Yep, except for cameras meant for Astrophotography, which want to get as much light as possible. For all other cameras, the IR cut filter is required to color balance any day time shot.
That said, it's still a TON of light coming in. 🙂 But your sensor should be fine. (I design cameras for a living)
+Ian Johnston need a circuit board designer? 😀
Ha! Yeah we are hiring actually. 🙂
I don't suppose telecommuting is an option though. I'm kinda stuck here until the kids are off to college :/
Awesome shot! Where are you? To Break the rules +Brent Burzycki
+Brent Burzycki, this is great. Using an obfuscating flare in composition to enhance the representation of serenity in flight, is totally legit. Heck, we use it in film all the time to emphasize lateral movement and speed. This is probably the first intentional use of full lens reflective flare I've seen from a DSLR in recent days though. 🙌
+Jon Decker I would call it more of an accidental intentialism mixed with luck and a bit of photo editing..
