    Any aviation photographers here?

    Anyone else into aviation photography? I got the bug again after visiting the two local airports last week. I especially brought my IIIf w/Canon 135/3.5

    Unfortunately it seems that aviation photographers have all gone digital (A.net doesn't talk about film anymore.) However I was cheered-up last week when at Centrair a gentleman next to me had a black-body Pentax film somethingorother

    Yes, I actually did entertain the thought of bringing my Rolleiflex with me next time
    Those who know, shoot film

    Oh -as in of planes. I can almost feel for actual aerial photographers who have gone to the D side. No need to keep the versamat processor tuned up, or to have to process hundreds of feet of film and get it all printed to get the client the data they wanted. I think an SLR would have the edge if you are taking pictures of planes, since usally they are hundreds of feet away behing tall fences around here.
    my real name, imagine that.

    Mike,

    Hauling the data storage device of a Vexcel UltraCam out of a plane is no fun either...

    Oddly enough I am an airline pilot and shoot a lot of photos of airplanes.

    These are ALL digital and I am sure I am gonna hear about but they are fun.

    Not all of them are airplanes but that album was to show my friends back home what my job is like

    I have taken my rangefinder and recently my TLR with me but I am so tired of taking pictures of airplanes I usually take photos of where I am at my overnight. Its great to spend 18 hours at some new place 2-3 nights a week as a photographer. I never run out of things to take photos of.

    I have done it and would like to do it again, see the link but ignore the rather bad scans (all done with Hasselblad on provia with a lot of flashlight of +/- 12 600 Joules).

    I fly also, and always have a camera with me. No digital, always film. Photo of my co-pilot attached.

    Aviation Photography. If you are referring to Aerial Photography that's what I do in the DelMarVa area... I also take some ground based airport and airplane pics with my YashicaMat or my Agfa Isolette folder for my own enjoyment. Aerial Photography is done digitally so the clients can get their "I need it yesterday" photos quickly.
