ma fahamt AAR... 50? of course i'm younger than 50!


Faisal Haji, thanks for visiting.. glad you liked the pic, I will upload a sharper one for you.

However you cannot do maghrib shooting (low light) of moving airplane (250kmh min) without blurring. I used a very high iso (max was 3200) and about 1/320 s shutter speed.

If you do the maths, 250kmh / 3.6 = 69 m/s

1/320 s x 69 m/s = 0.21 meters or 21 centimeters

Thus the size of the blur is approx 21 centimeters. This is small compared to the plane's length, but at that high speed and big zoom it will still blur...

anyway check out my next picture

and thanks for checking up on this poor blog!

Lol haven't u asked us to guess? The 50 was my guess to how many shots it took to get this final shot.

BuJ said...

well.. Rose.. it took a LOT of pics.. maybe took me about 40-80 shots.. but that was in one setting.

i have been monitoring that spot for weeks and on that particular day i got the position of the towers right and the light was just right and i shot it

of course if i spend longer i can get a better shot.. but patience and time are scarce.

plus i never photoshop anything. in fact i don't have photoshop.

.. sorry Rose i didn't understand ur 1st comment was about the number of tries... i guess u need to use full sentences like they taught us in school :p

Rosh ur a winner and u don't need my blog to know it.
