DCA to RSW and Back

I always take airport photos. It helps pass the time when you are bored waiting for your flight. So I shot this series over days I was flying to Fort Myers, Florida and when I returned home to Washington, DC.

I used my Nexus 6P and the Camera FV-5 app which allows me to shoot in raw. This gives me a bit more latitude with the images than I otherwise would have out of a phone shooting straight jpeg. I still don’t push the images that much just because if you do they start to fall apart because the sensor in the phone isn’t going to capture everything a larger sensor can.


5 Airports and 3 Airlines Later

With my recent travels to the West Coast I had to do some creative flying to get to the various destinations in my itinerary. I flew out of Regan National Airport, laidover in Chicago, flew in and out of Portland, Oregon, in and out in San Diego, and then landed in Baltimore when I got back home. While I didn’t get pictures of all the stops I got a enough with Chicago getting the bulk of the images shot since I was there longer than I anticipated due to mechanical issues with the plane.

The first image was shot on my Canon S100 and the rest were shot on my Nexus 6P. While I had access to the Canon S100 it was just easier to use my phone to take the images. I used Camera FV-5 to take the images since I knew I could get DNG files out of it and give me some latitude to work with.

Whenever you use small sensors to take images there is noise in the image. It’s just the nature of the beast. I tried to keep the editing simple. I think I hit my mojo about halfway through the series but I’m fried from jet lag right now so it’s a bit inconsistent. Still, I liked them and wanted to share.
