One of my fav helo shots...

QUOTED IMAGE
1DMkIII + 300mm f/2.8L IS .. 1/30 @ f/22 ISO 100

Wow that's an awesome shot. Makes me want to go out and shoot more. How do you get shots like that? Do you know the pilots personally or are they clients? And also I think it's funny how the 1/focal length rule gets tossed out the window in panning shots :mrgreen:

Many of our Phoenix-area airports are photographer friendly but one in particular, Phoenix Mesa-Gateway (the former Williams AFB .. aka "Willie") goes a little above and beyond the rest.

There is an area adjacent to the main transient ramp with a small hill on which to stand (or put a ladder) or you can put a ladder right up to the fence and shoot over.

IIRC, this was shot just standing on the hill...

1/60 is usually about as slow as I go when shooting Helis... then again I don't have IS on my longer glass so I find that this speed gets me the most keepers with acceptable rotor blur.

Dug this one out from a couple years ago .....

Always impressive seeing those fly in person. Got a friend that flies them and gave me a compressor blade from one of the engines.

Damn looks like I need to get out there :lol: My dad is actually from scottsdale, but last time I went I didn't even know what a dslr was.

Oh, surprised I was, less than a minute after I pointed camera to airport - cop was asking for my Id. But in chicago cop are trying to stay away from dangerous areas and around O'hare it is safe - so I guess they gravitate towards it and have to justify it

If you're just looking to practice, just go to Navy Pier. They fly dozens of flights all around the city every day, all day, and fly the shore line over the Shed....

At least every time I go down there. Which is often..

If you're by O'hare, go down to the rental lots. I'm not sure what the name of the road is there..

You got the best advise from top notched guys of this field.
I add: Trial and Error. Then go with your gut feeling as what you like others to see.

Yeah, it might come out looking like this (here's a perfectly bad example). :-/
