The Air Traffic 2 – Timelapse Film

I shot this shot mostly in the restricted runway area of Singapore’s Changi Airport and the surrounding public areas for some scenes. I was so close to the planes that my cameras literally got shaken by the rumbles from the jet engines – Which actually produced a pretty neat effect. (See 2:12)

Room with a view

16-35 cloud
The view from my room – Shot with 5D Mark III + Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L II USM

I never really appreciated the view from my room’s window until I got into photography and learned how to be more aware and observant of my surroundings. Living on one of the top floors, I have the privilege of the unobstructed view.

This is perfect for me because I get most of the shots for my sky/cloud library to use for composites from here. With Singapore’s tropical climate, I can get apocalyptic cloudy shots today, and heavenly sunsets the next.
