Classic Helicopters Aerial Tour of Seattle – Highly Recommended

I don’t have the best history with riding in helicopters to take photos.  The last time I did this was in Kauai, where we managed to pick the one day that month with car wash rain.  And everyone said use a polarizer, so I did and by doing so made a dark day darker.  I got some photos but they weren’t anything you would see in a guidebook.

This time around, I did some research and decided to rent Sony’s 24-70 with optical stabilization.  I’m glad I did.  It worked out well and my 16-35 sat in the bag at my feet.  We didn’t get the best weather but it wasn’t raining  🙂  I set the iso at 1250 which most of the time gave me shutter speeds around 1/200 which worked well.  I got quite a few keepers.  I will definitely be back for more of this, hopefully with better light. http://www.mikereidphotography.com #classichelicopters #seattle
