McDonnell Douglas DC-10 (N308FE)

تم الإرسال

For this morning departure shot of "Ann" (FDX's N308FE) from Reno Tahoe International, I decided to attempt to get a closeup snap ... but backlit by the very bright sky in the east caused by the sun just coming up over the Virginia Range Mountains. I repositioned myself on to Bravo taxiway, which is located parallel to runway 16R-34L and on the west side, and I made an educated guess as to what camera settings I would need in order to get a sharp and viewable click as the big DC-10 came past me with the sunlight shining toward my lens. As is obvious by the shadows seen here, the "shaded" side of the FDX freighter was facing me so my #1 goal was to capture a clean and clear click as it went by. I actually did not expect it to be rotating; I thought it would still have all four on the ground when it went past. Because it was nose-high, the next snap in this series caught it with the sun directly on the other side so the lens picked up several sunlight-caused circular reflections and although the photo shows clear and crisp detail of the shady side, the reflections make that photo unpresentable.

Greg, Roy, and Mark ... Hey, guys; howdy and Thank You. Although shooting this style (backlit) picture will never become one of my most-liked angles, there are times when circumstances only permit a photographer to try a backlit shot, and this experience gave me some useful knowledge that may prove valuable in the future. I figured I'd not get very many opportunities to be as close as this so it seemed like a good time to practice. Getting it rotating was basically just pure luck (but ... I'll take it ... grin).

Absolutely fantastic, thanks Gary.

Excellent shot! Minor detail, that's a DC 10-30. The center gear gives it away (plus the tail number, I think all our -30's had 3xx numbers). I have to assume you have a job on the ramp. With the Airport or an airline?

Sam, Christoff, and Jim ... Howdy to you all. Sam, TY for your compli. I'm going to be catching up on all your new posts since your "return" to FA (grin). I did receive your email and I'll be replying. (Thumbs Up)
Christoff, hello to you again, and again I greatly appreciate your comment / compliment about my pic. If you may be interested, I occasionally send better photos to my FA friends via email, and if you wish, I can include you as a recipient of those better pictures. My email is OldeCarl@gmail.com
Jim, Hi to you, and much Thanx for the comment and added info. No, not employed by the airport or any airline. I am merely an amateur photographer who enjoys taking aviation photos. And I've always felt that pictures are meant to be viewed, so I give them no charge to whoever requests them. (And I'm a huge FDX "fan," I'm trying to get a shot of the entire fleet. Been snapping FDX for ten years; probably take me another 20 to get them all. One of my bucket list hopes is to visit KMEM.)
