Semper Paratus - Always Prepared. Sounds like good advice for a Monday and it certainly was for this shoot. This was taken at Clearwater Coast Guard Air Station. The rains started at midday as they often do here in Florida during the summer. It rained so heavily that my hosts were pretty much ready to call it a day. I asked if I could hang out until either it passed or until sunset as the plan was to shoot the helo in the last minutes of daylight and light it with strobes. Luckily the weather cleared just in time to allow a gorgeous setting sun in the west to light up the retreating storm to the east. We really couldn’t ask for a better backdrop. We, the Coast Guard maintainers and I, sprang into action as we knew it wouldn’t last. We got the H-60 into place and I set up my Nikon SB units and trusted the Creative Lighting System to do the heavy lifting. It all came together in record time and definitely worth the long hours of waiting followed by the few minutes of break-neck effort. Always be prepared! Sharing my work is great and much appreciated but please mention @fujiramos13 when you do. Also feel free to turn on post notifications so you don’t miss a post. Many thanks. #internationalsocietyforaviationphotography #nikonphotography #nikonaviation #nikonusa #nikonnps #northropgrumman #f5tiger #usn #usnavy #aircraftcarrier #avgeek #aviation #aviationphotography #picoftheday #excellentaviation #instaaviation #nikonartists #fighterjet #fighterpilot #avporn #excellentaviation #wingsofgold #topgun #avgeeksunite #iamnikon #aviationdaily #uscg #coastguard #hh60j #semperparatus #nikoncls
