Sky Watch: Outside the Window of a Plane

Capturing the scenery outside the window of the plane can be a very pleasant thing. The photos from behind the plane’s window can complete the documentation of your trip.

Captured in 2011 during our flight from Jakarta to Surabaya (East Java,Indonesia). I only used my pocket digital camera.
Above clouds and mountains!
Here are photography tips that I read in a travel magazine:

1.Select the best seat.
It’s definitely a window seat is the best option. According to poll, the seat no. 6A is the most favorite. From this chair, you may shoot a view of the sky with the wing of the plane.

Use low ISO –as long as the speed is possible- to avoid the grainy photo, and the shutter speed above 1/250 sec. Aligns the camera lens with a window and don’t attach your camera to the window as the plane is moving or vibrating.

Diaphragm setting tailored to the needs; principally, your small openings mean more extensive depth of field which allows you to capture detailed objects.
Avoid using CPL filter since your photos will have imitation rainbow.
Don’t use the flash at all. It will worsen reflections and also disturb other passengers.

Choose morning or at dusk so you can capture the beauty of the sky.
If you choose the early morning flight to Europe, it will be arriving early in the transit country such as Doha. When you want to shoot below, wait a moment until the plane goes down; and an hour or 30 minutes before landing, in which the position of the plane will be decreased in height.

Your intuition should play in capturing moments. Avoid taking shots when going to take off or landing.

Thank you for the tips of taking pictures from a plane. Your photos are the best I've seen yet. I really, really, really, like the mountain peeking through the clouds it looks like an island in the sky.
