This Aviation image of a Boeing 737 Empennage, was shot at Phoenix Airport PHX from the roof of the Southwest Airlines concourse. I was shooting a project and I asked my contact with the Phoenix airport if I could take photos of the planes. I was standing inside the concourse and they replied, "go ahead" and pointed towards the planes. I said no, "I mean outside", they replied, "Oh you want to be on the 'Air' side" and I said yes, the air side. They asked when, I said tomorrow morning before sunrise. They then made a call and told me what address to go to and someone would meet me.
Very early the next morning I drove to the airport, found my TSA agent that was to be my guide, and shadow, who pulled his airport security pickup around front & said Put your gear in. And after going through the gate, he asked where I wanted to go. I shot for 4 sunrises and got some very cool images.
I was asking the TSA agent that was getting me where I wanted to be if he could get me onto the roof. Without hesitation he said, "follow me". So I grabbed my camera bag and tripod and he led me up to the roof. After he saw I was very comfortable with heights, we went on roofs all over the airport.
The Gear: Canon digital camera set to 1/320 of a second shutter speed, 100 ISO and a Canon 200mm f1.8 lens set to f2.5.
The Light: Open shade. The sun had just come up behind me and the concourse is providing the shade.
