Shot these pictures back in January 2019. I was still searching for a job. I stayed near LAX, conveniently I found this little hill down the street that had amazing view at all airport.
Shooting plane taking off turned out to be a lot tougher than I imaged, even during the day. The planes move fast, they are far from you so you have to zoom. That makes making a steady exposure a huge challenge, given I didn’t want to crank the ISO way too high. Out of 50 pics I took, only a few turned out decently clear. The airport itself turned out to be a beautiful sight at night time though. So many different colors used on the runways.
