You’re flipping through a magazine or scrolling through Instagram and you suddenly stop. There it is, an incredible helicopter photo—perfect blade position, ideal blade blur, amazing color pop, breathtaking background, beautiful composition. Gorgeous.
Capturing such arresting images is no small feat. Professional aviation photographers work years to perfect their techniques while devising detailed procedures for planning and executing the ideal photo shoot, in hopes of capturing that one great shot—or, in some fortunate cases, series of great shots.
Join us Oct. 28 for a creative HAI@Work webinar that will bring together a panel of award-winning aviation photographers to discuss all that goes into obtaining spectacular aerial images. The group will also offer tips and advice for photographers and the pilots who fly with them.
