exploreGO Top Tips:
When considering photography from a plane or helicopter, having the ability to take wide or ultra-wide shots can come in super handy to get everything in shot. This also allows you to crop out any unwanted elements when you get home. Telephoto lens are also good if you’re going wildlife spotting.
Be aware of your camera’s focal point in an aircraft. If you get it wrong you’ll have a sharp image of the aircraft window, and not what you were hoping to capture in the distance or on the ground. Point-and-pray sometimes works (especially if you take multiple images) but taking the time to ensure your focal point is where you want it to be will ensure quality shots.
Asking questions of the pilot is generally encouraged, just ensure you leave them alone during take-off and landing as they will be busy with a lot of decisions to manage and make sure you get safely to your destination or target location, and then back again.
