Aisle seat? No thanks, I’ll take the window. This is how I roll when it comes to flying. Why pass up the opportunity to look down on earth from 35,000 feet? It’s an aerial photography mecca if you’re prepared.

A few tips if you’re planning to shoot from a plane:

1. I’ve found that lenses above 50mm tend to give the best results. This is because they focus past the airline window’s glass better than wider lenses and can isolate your shots better. I’ve even used my 70-200mm with great results for this reason.

2. Shoot at large apertures and fast shutter speeds. This is to keep the shots crisp despite the vibration and movement of the airplane. 

3. If you have the choice, book your flights so that you’re taking off or landing during a sunrise or sunset for optimal lighting and colour. Also, picking a seat near the front of the plane increases the likelihood that your view down to Earth isn’t obscured by the plane’s wing.

THEROS | The Heroes, Part I

These seven beautiful paintings are only a small part of what will eventually be a 21-piece series by the wonderful Chuck Lukacs. Each painting is featured on one of the “Hero” cards given out at special events during Theros block.

I don’t understand why when we destroy something created by man we call it vandalism, but when we destroy something by nature we call it progress.

I think she’s special. She doesn’t need anyone. Like that’s the thing. Even if we were together, she wouldn’t really belong to me. She doesn’t belong to anything. She’s off in her own world.
