I photographed these images from my Hotel Room staying at the amazing Tower Club at LeBua in Bangkok where they filmed Hangover II. I used the new In-Camera HDR feature on my Nikon D800E with Nikon 14-24mm lens to extend my dynamic range and extend the length of my exposure so that I could get some interesting movement in the ships. I set my camera to TIF (could use jpg also) because this feature does not work in RAW. This is because the camera is actually taking two photographs and combining them together.
HDR MODE: ON (series)
EXPOSURE DIFFERENTIAL: 3EV Stops
I have been a fan of all things that go fast for as long as I can remember and have had the opportunity to shoot and fly in many of these amazing Private Airplanes over the last few years. That's why I was very pleased when I got the job to shoot the large fleet of Luxury Aircrafts for Sunwest Aviation, Calgary. In May 2009 I received several awards at the Professional Photographers of Canada National Convention for the above image. Awards included, best Industrial Image in Canada, Judges Choice award as the top Commercial Image in Canada, an Award of Excellence and the image accepted into the National Archives as one of the top 40 images in Canada for 2009.
