Beautiful Light Trails of Airplanes Landing

Australian PhD student Hamish Innes-Brown lurked around Tullamarine Airport in Melbourne and shot these beautiful photographs of airplanes landing using a Mamiya C330 twin lens reflex camera and Kodak Portra 160NC medium format film.

He’s also selling prints of these images over on RedBubble.

    I don’t know about where he lives, but I’d get arrested if I did that.

    Hi Henning, I was in a special plane-watching carpark just near the airport. A white security car did come round a couple of times but they didn’t say anything…

    Wow Henning, I’m glad I don’t live where you do!

    Are you guys really that paranoid? You do realize that SEVERAL airports land directly over busy urban environments. I live in San Diego and could easily situate myself right under the flight path to take photos. If someone really wanted to take a plane out I highly doubt they’d stand RIGHT next to the gate of the airport. Just relax and enjoy the beautiful photographs Hamish has taken! Great work my friend.

    Hamish, You’re the man… Even though it’s Melbourne shot…LOL..
    I am Sydney boy living in Manchester UK. We have a viewing area right next the Manchester Ringway Int’l airport. I was telling my friend I thought we could try light trail shots at night at the airport. It’s actually the second busiest ariport in England. So there are plenty of flights into the night… Happy Days!

    You’ve proved it works. Great shots too mate, well done!
