While stuck in Africa during the initial global lockdown, we were able to get to the coast to take in some new scenery. Here's a collection of images from one flight with a scenic flight from Swakopmund with Bush Bird and the "Sossusfly" One of the most amazing short aerial flights you can do.
I highly recommend the photography flight excursion, even if you have to shoot through a window and the temperatures inside the plane are insanely hot. Other than that, it's pure joy. Here's the collection and let me know if you have done this aerial photography flight with Bush Bird and the "Sossusfly" out of Swakopmund where the world's oldest desert meets the Atlantic Ocean.
All photographs seen here were shot with a Canon 5D Mark IV and a Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 USM II
In order to avoid reflection and glare, your best bet is to wear black clothing and to have a black microfibre or breathable jacket that you put on top and around you while you shoot that way you eliminate the glare.
In this circumstance of shooting aerial photography, forget about the rule of thirds and traditional compositional theories. Look for patterns, lines, subtle shadows and highlights and always make sure you have continuous autofocus on and shoot with a fast enough shutter speed that compensates for your speed and height.
I hope you enjoying flying with Bush Bird and Sossusfly out of Swakopmund, Namibia aerial photography flights.
