Go behind-the-scenes on an aerial photo shoot

ç

 

The current cover photo on zeraphoto.com was a product of that evening's work. With a moving helicopter, some mildly turbulent air, and not much light, a combination of steady hands and relatively high ISO settings on the camera were in order. I had a Canon 5D Mark III with a 24-70 f/2.8 zoom, and a shiny new Hasselblad H5-D 50 (thanks to the ever-awesome Bruce Dugdale at Glazer's Camera) with the 80mm f/2.8 lens. ISOs ranged from 800 to 3200 on the Canon and 100-800 on the Hasselblad, which, with the new CMOS sensor, produced remarkably good images even at 800.

 

Bryan Edmonds, a digital tech, photo assistant, and all-around good guy, was along for the ride, and he used a Nikon D800 with the 14-24 f/2.8, and he's to thank for agreeing to share these awesome behind-the-scenes photos.
