15 Mar Plane spotting Sydney Airport
Plane spotting Sydney airport, an absolute must if you are into aviation or airplanes.
Rob Mulally and myself visited a couple of spots around the runway to find the best one. Turns out the official Sydney airport spotting mound isn’t the best spot. That is if you want to shoot timelapses. We eventually drove back to the north side of runway R16 and settled on the side of the road behind the new crew car park. This gives you an elevated view and is ideal for watching the planes take off right over your head. The Airbus A380 is an absolute monster to behold. I highly recommend doing this at least once in your life.
The vlog (short for video blog) was shot on my iphone 7 plus in 4K. The cinematic slow motion shots were recorded on my Canon 1DXMkII and the timelapses were mainly shot on a Canon 5D3. Lenses used: 17-40 70-200 2.8 and 50 1.8
If you have any questions please post them under the video on youtube, it’s easier for me to track it that way and there are more people there so they can pick some knowledge up as well.
If you’re still reading I’d like to thank you sincerely. I’ve been spending some time on improving the content on my website and am really enjoying building this blog. The idea is to give more context to the videos I create via this blog and to eventually get people to subscribe to an email list as well. This way I can reach my audience directly and know that they are interested in what I do.
I’m coming close to the recommended 300 words (apparently that’s what you need for optimal SEO) so I think it’s time to stop writing. Thanks for watching, thanks for reading, and I hope to see you on the next one!
