View Full Version : Evening Flight is EZ
17th of June 2008 (Tue), 14:39
This is my first "real" post here.
This is a shot I took one evening of a friends Veri-Ez. He had just finished a photo shoot of another airplane and we had the photo plane and pilot handy so, even though it was getting late, we figured we would give it a try. After a bunch of throwaways I figured I would try the flash. This was taken with a 30D, 24-105 L and 380EX.

Andrushka - Yes, he built it himself. It has WELL over 1,000 flight hours so far. It sure is impressive, 200 mph at 30+ mpg!
PhotosGuy - I am not sure I would have thought of using the flash but saw him use it as "fill" on the first flight. The extra height on the camera made the clearance on the window pretty tight. I am not wild about the hot spot on the canopy but could edit it out.

If you want to see what can really be achieved with a flash in air-to-air, I suggest you checked out Claes's website at http://www.axstalphoto.com/. Some really interesting effects there.

I think with a touch of levels and curves, it may pop more.
