I've been hired on my a small rancher to shoot his property both on land and by air. Land is no problem no questions. The part I'm a little unsure about is the ranch owner has a small grass strip runway on his property and his own airplane (Cessna 208 Caravan) he's going to take me up in so we can take photographs from the air of his property.
His plane has a roll up door in the back that I'll be photographing from. I'll be in a harness and tethered to the inside of the plane to keep me from falling out.
I don't suppose I could get any tips on shooting property this way? Any tips at all would be great as I've not don't ANYTHING like this before. Sure to be an adventure either way!
EF 50mm f/1.4
EF 35mm f/1.4L USM
EF 100mm f/2
EF 70-200mm f/4
EF 85mm f/1.8 USM
From some previous light aero stuff I've done, I would take only the 70-200 on this first run 'upstairs'
Set ISO-400 + 1/1500 or higher and use the full length of the zoom to grab 'wide' and 'narrow' views of the property. Once back on terra-firma and looking over the best of the results with him [ie: after you've tidied up any non-acceptable ones], if in the conversation is appears that he wants / needs wide-angle images & out to the horizon, then you get a 2nd air flight!!
Work with the rancher - choose time of day for shadows etc - make the plan & see it all come together
