Realized I have never posted any of my AP pics on rr. Thought I would share a few of my most recent job.

This is Chandler Christian Church in Chandler Arizona.

Hope you like. Comments welcome. But please be kind

Obviously they are resized for posting, the actual quality is really quite excelent I think.

Nice shots. I like the first one, looks like postcard kinda shot.

In the original is there more detail in the shadows on the lower right side (parking lot and cars)?

Yeah, the originals always have better detail.

Thanks guys. Glad they are liked. never know what people on this forum are going to say about your stuff.. Probabbly why i never posted any before.

I always thought this one looked like a post card or maybe an advertisement for a home builder. This is one of the first shots I ever took.

I like your pictures here, and also looked at your site. The website has some slow loading pictures, perhaps you need to use some JPEG compression for the website pictures, or maybe it was just a bad day at the server. Also your name is not mentioned in the site. One of the benefits of small business is to establish what the experts call a relationship with customers, having your name, and maybe photo on the site is a first step I don't put a photo of me on mine, but it is considered. And finally, one of your site's photos, the upper "Commercial gallery" shot could be levelled a little.

Your site has a mature look to it, and it doesn't elaborate on the equipment (customers have no need to know the details of our helicopters), in essence a business that is presented as a business and charges enough may earn money; and one presented as an extension of a hobby loses respect from customers. Apart from these little pointers you are on the right track, very much so, I would say Post some more...

Eric, Thanks for your pointers, I agree on all points. However, I am hesitant to put myself out there too much. With all the issues going around about FAA and such, I prefer to take a "low key" approach. I don't really advertise and only take jobs I want.

The image loading deal on my site is concerning, I tried it when I first built it on several machines at several locations, they all seemed to load pretty good. Even on a slow Verizon wireless card. Maybe you just got the server at a slow point.

Thanks again for all the helpfull info. I love the hobby and the job. AP work is GREAT fun and rewarding too.

I am more than happy to discus the equipment I use with anyone interested. Just prefer to do it one on one rather than in open forum or on my site. It is obvious to all of us in the industry what kind of aircraft is used most of the time. But I don't want to advertise it.

Thanks,

Viper

Nice exposure. I have a bit of a time with bright roofs in bright Sun. What camera and settings did you use?
I wouldn't worry too much about what people say. You get some good feedback from people here, along with a mix of dicey opinions. And, the usual troll members (you know who they are). By posting and getting feedback, even negitive, you aren't the only one that benefits.

Honestly, I don't know the exposure settings. I use a Cannon G9 and a blip USB I know the blip sets several things to a default. I think it is basicaly all automatic. The only thing i try and watch out for is where the sun is comming from. I got lucky this day as it was slightly cloudy. Not thick clouds. Enough to give good shadows. but not enough to wash out the lens. one of the images is touched up for camera glare. can you guys tell which one?

Hi Viper!

Dont be afraid to ask for peoples opinion, as long as the critic makes sense, you could learn something from it.

I think you have a nice height and elevation, youve also managed to level the horizon. Nice work!

And another thing you are aware of is where the sun come from, it is always best to have the sun in the back so the sky wont be blown out, a "cheater" there is a polar filter, it acts best in a 45 degree from the sun, make an 45 degr angel with your index finger and your thumb, point your index finger to the sun, and the point where your thumb points to the sky in the other end, is the point in the sky that will appear darkest, thats how a polar filter work (short version)

Never argue with an idiot, he'll drag you down to his level and beat you with experience...

Nice compo, color, clarity. Commercial buildings can be difficult to make look good from the air given all the mechanical stuff that's usually on top. Your height's about ideal I think. ...got the whole lay-out w/o too much roof. Nice dark paving too that maybe you PS'd. Seems that's an almost always need to do w/ comm bldg's.
