Have you ever flown on an airplane and wondered how to take aerial Pictures? When you capture those beautiful moments that you are flying over, your journal will be complete.

 

Get a window seat. When you plan to take a picture from the window of an airplane, Try to get a window seat in front of the plane. This area creates a smoother ride and you don't have the airplane wing to block your view. Another reason to have a seat before the wing section, is that the heat shimmer from the engines will affect the quality of the photo.

 

Manual focus. Switch your camera from the auto focus to the manual focus. The reason is that the camera gets confused when you are shooting through the glass window. When you switch to the manual focus mode and lock the focus on the main focal point you will achieve better results.

 

Don't put the lens right against the window. We normally do this hoping that it will cut down on the reflections and take a steady shot. Now, resting your camera on the window pane might help you to decrease the reflection but it will never help in taking a steady shot, because the camera will shake a lot more owing to the ibrations of the airplane.

 

Turn off the flash. Don't use flash photography When you shoot from an airplane. The reason is that a flash will not be of any help and it may scare your fellow passengers who may be first-time passengers on an airplane.
