Willie Creek Broome

broome, landscape photography, australian landscape photography, australian photographer, aerial photography

Every year when I head up to Broome my oldest son Xavier (3.5yrs) and I hop into the Willie Creek helicopter and go for a blast around the local area.  I have an amazing time taking the photos with him on my lap and he has a blast trying to touch all the buttons.

Fortunately, the pilots have infinite patience with him and they don’t seem to mind, until he presses the wrong button I guess.

I’ve managed to capture good aerial shots before but True North Mark passed on some great advice to me a few months ago when it came to settings so I tried them out and I was really happy with what I captured.  ‘Go high on the ISO son’ he said.

So I cranked the ISO up to 1000 and used TV priority of 1/1000th.  All my shots came out razor sharp!

Now an admission, my last post Lofty Heights wasn’t an aerial shot at all but a lump of salt beside the road.  That’s the great thing about photography, done right we can change people’s perceptions.

Thanks,

Jamie

      Thanks Tim. As for the last post its been sitting on the hard drive for 3yrs marked as a non usuable one, until I realised that it does actually look like an aerial shot.

    Hi Jamie…yep nice image mate and glad I could help. I normally shoot at ISO 800 actually and I try to get to 1/2000th!

      Thanks mate. I couldn’t push it that high on this particular day unfortunately.
