Alright, I have a confession to make: I took pictures of airplanes with a cell-phone. As my interest in photography grew, I decided I had to invest in quality images, and for me that meant using a hand-me-down DSLR (a Cannon E45o more specifically) instead of my previous point-and-shoot camera. I fully intended to bring my DSLR on my trip to Hawaii, which involved a lengthy layover at SEA (the routing was SAN-SEA-KOA-SAN), leaving lots of time to take pictures.
Well, we had to leave the house at 4:45 for our 6:18 departure from SAN, and I was barely awake when we left. Guess what I forgot to bring: my camera.
However, upon arriving at SEA and having nothing better to do, I decided that I was going to leave the Centurion Lounge, wander the terminals, and take pictures of airplanes, with a cell phone. I honestly didn’t expect me to get any good photos (the thing can’t zoom at all) but I’m actually really pleased by how some of the photos turned out. I was limited to shooting stuff at the gate or pretty close, but I still got some pretty good shots. Let’s get started!
So, there you have it: my first time taking pictures of airplanes with a cellphone. I was pretty limited in terms of what I could shoot, but I’m pleased with the results nonetheless.
