48 Hour Photo Comp: The Human Element

Post by shorsley »

Aircraft wouldn't get in the air without the people that keep them there. The pilot(s), the ground crew, the engineers, the baggage loaders, the list goes on...

So I would like to see your best shots featuring a human being(s) in shot.

Couple of rules:
- The human must be clearly visible in the shot
- There must be some element of an aircraft in the shot
- Reenactors are allowed, as are Museum staff/volunteers working on preserved aircraft

I'll allow up to three entries, good luck!

This is a "selfie' - not a type of shot I usually take! It is a still from a video I made for my local gliding club.
Far far harder to do than I imagined - and left with the golden rule of aviation - Fly the Aeroplane first!

one of the students getting it a bit wrong.. Overcooking rotation. What you can't see is the 'aghhhh' on the face of the instructor (me) watching him solo.

I thought I spent most of my time at airshows trying to avoid getting people in the frame, however it proved to be surprisingly difficult to choose just three!
