Flight over Manhattan

I’m in NY teaching, shooting and scouting and having a great time. My buds at B&H Photo didn’t want me sitting around much and kept me very busy all day starting with a flight over Manhattan. Jessica at B&H (thanks dear!) arrange for us to get a flight with Liberty Helicopters for 30min of shooting and scouting. Yesterday is was raining pretty darn good but this morning as you can see, I got my clouds. I just gotta have my clouds. The flight was pretty basic, we took off from the tip of Manhattan and went past the grand old lady and up the Hudson. Being a simplistic flight this time, doors were left on so I shot through the plexi which did color correction in post. There was no hover time so had to make the shot when you saw it which is always a challenge. The D4 & 24-70AFS made quick work of the shooting part of the process, I just had to see what I liked at click. The light wasn’t in our favor when it comes to direction, but it’s the only opportunity I was going to have so just had fun. Like anytime in the air, it was too short but it sure was a ton of fun. Thanks guys!
