The 2G Portrait
Mike took us on some wing over maneuvers that were sick! Oh man, better then any roller coaster ride you might ever take. Before we took off, we talked a little bit about our flight. It was a huge help to have Kevin there since he had flown with Mike before and had great ideas for these Hero shots. The plan was during the wing over, Mike would turn on the smoke. As you can see I had a headset on so during the whole flight we were in communication so when it was time for the wing over, Mike told me and into the turn we went. Weeeeeeeeee!
The horizontal shot above is how the camera was in relationship to me the whole time because a vertical Fish portrait is just nasty! But the bottom shot is how the plane, me and the camera were when I went click. The smoke trail is cool because it shows where we just came from and the path we were flying. I’ll probably not use the bottom shot for other then fun because I think the viewer not aviation oriented would be visually confused by it since most don’t fly in that orientation. But for me, the client, I like the bottom because it really tells the story of the flight.
