Up in the air

Last night I was airborne in a Twin Squirrel (Eurocopter AS 355) over Ringwood to do a dusk shoot. We arrived just over the area just at sunset and I was shooting until well after as the brief called for a shot with street lights on. It was technically challenging as there is a tradeoff between graininess as the ISO of the camera is upped so the shots aren’t blurred by motion. The final shots were done at 1/20th of a second which was made possible by the use of a Kenyon gyro attached under the camera. The helicopter was from Microflite.
