Getting out of your comfort zone

posted on 26th of november, 2014


As a photographer I tend to find that my creative side seems to go up and down, some days I'm full of ideas and other days everything seems to be overdone and there's nothing new and exciting to shoot.


So around a year ago or so I saw a video on Youtube of a pro stock photographer shooting a fast jet, tonnes of gear and a team of people behind him to produce one shot.


I thought that looks fun and I'm always looking to try new things, now I do not have a team of people or the equipment he used but I thought I would try my hand at capturing fighter jets flying at between 500mph and 650mph. There is a link in blue at the bottom of the post to see one of these jets in action :)

How beautiful and great the pictures are! I like them very much.
I want do better in 2015 but I find can't write blog and uploading and editing. Till today, I have 1452 images online and 136 sales altogether. Among of it, I have finished 4 assignments and one picture was Editors' choiced.But since last November, I don't know what' the matter, the uploading and edit picture was too difficulty! Some pictures uploaded can't be sent in pending and new picture can't be uploaded. All this is really let me afflictive.

BC, I had a lot of opportunities to photograph while flying, but mixing it with performing aerial gunnery and in flight engineer duties, and vibrations from inside a helicopter was a bit challenging. I have quite a few photos of the U.S. Presidential VH-3D and CH-46E in my portfolio from my time at Marine One, if you want to check them out.
