why green camo for an airplane? - created by janoogee


why green camo for an airplane?
Favs: 1SBS: n/aHi-resRank: 21/33Score: 57.5% (0)7339 views

McDonnell F-4C Phantom parked for display. The F-4 achieved legendary status as a warplane in combat. This one holds many honors and was retired in 1987. I do not know why some airplanes have green camo paint. (5 years and 1533 days ago)

Because, when it's landed on the ground and you watch it from the sky (in another plane), it looks like the grass, the forest, the ground.

author says:

Thank you for the comment. It sounds right but at the same time to me it still seems more people on the ground shoot at planes than observers looking down on it. But I do not know about these war things.

kyricom says:

Artifakts is right, but it also applies if the plane is in flight. If you're in a fighter and want the advantage attacking another plane, you often try to start from a higher altitude so you can dive down on them. If the plane is flying over greenish terrain, it would be harder to spot.

Coolness. A collectors item V signed by Dave Mustaine, Dave Ellefson, Nick Menza, and Marty Friedman from 1997. Megadeth's best lineup in my opinion. Nice shot.

Great, great, great photo!!! V+F!!! Beautiful capture! How were settings on your camera set, and what camera did you use?

author says:

GoodOguy - Thank you for your comments. On this image I used my canon 7D -set at ISO 400 - with a canon 100mm lens - aputure at 8.0 and s speed at 1/1600 sec. - I took a number of different images at different settings. I also wanted a little bit of blur in the fast moving wings to show motion but not in the eyes. It was a fun shoot. I am glad you like it.

Good0guy says:

Why did you set it to 400 ISO? You have noise. (I am asking because I am learning ) I can see it was very fun.

(5 years and 1564 days ago)


author says:

GoodOguy - Thanks for asking. No problem with asking and learning. Normally ISO 400 does not produce noise in my camera but I also had the shutter speed at 1/1600. In these contests I use images straight from the camera with a little cropping and a little exposure plus or minus. I can eliminate the noise by running the image in a de-noise app. I was trying for the best mix of speed, depth of field and blur to produce an image I liked that showed the fighting and stop most action. I can clean this image up in other programs that are outside the rules of this contest. I often shoot ISO up to 800 but with lower shutter speed and when I stay around F 8 there is little or no noise. On objects that do not move I do use the much lower ISOs,

Good0guy says:

Thank you for that info, I will try in future to shoot in that settings. Hope I get good captures like you!
