Shooting Out The Window

On a previous post I explained how to shoot through Aquarium glass to get lifelike underwater shots.

The same technique can be used out of a plane porthole. Press the camera lens up to the window, using the rubber lens hood to block any light coming in around the lens and shoot away.

I haven’t tried this, but it would probably work – If you have a mobile phone,you could put a tap washer around the lens Bezel – Instagram Masterpiece!

A couple of things to note. You cannot get a decent photo, if your porthole has crazing of the outer pane. Ask that kid in front that’s banging his seat on your knees to swap places.

If you haven’t been to the destination before, you can’t really tell what looking out the window will provide.

In this case, I had been to Fiji before and knew which way the runway was orientated. But it still can be a hit and miss affair –  but that’s probably one of  the reasons you travel – Serendipity !

One thought on “Shooting Out The Window

  1. Ummmm am thinking this might be a hard act to follow especially if you’ve got the chap in front all the way back and your knees almost touch your nose…not to mention a windy airstrip and a somnambulant pilot😄😄😄😄
