Embraer 175 (N170SY)

Submitted

As the very first minutes of light begin to remove night's darkness from the Truckee Meadows, Skywest's N170SY accelerates down runway 16R to end its RON stay in Reno and start another busy day with a dawn departure to San Jose (KSJC).

Because I was fairly close, I decided not to use my Speedlite flash. Although I really doubted that it would be any type of distraction, it does give off a very intense flash and after thinking about it, I decided that any type of complaint would probably erase any future opportunities for me to be out there. As the old saying goes: "Better safe than sorry." So I snapped this handheld with no flash as the E75L raced past.

Gary... I much prefer this spotting capture sans any flash. Not only a more natural exposure results, but unwanted shadows are avoided too! :-)

Cliff ... I honestly believe the flash, even with the flash hood being used to enhance the light, would not have done much to illuminate the Embraer any better. I was fairly close and the flash IS bright when set to max intensity, but it has its range limitations. And I am also (almost) certain that it would not have been any type of distraction to the pilots. However, in this day and age, a sudden burst of intense light aimed right at a jet as it is on its D roll just might startle someone in the front office and may be misinterpreted as some type of threat or etc. So I just figured it was better to not use the Speedlite. No chance of any unintentional danger to the paxbird and no chance of a complaint that would likely have ended any future opportunities for me. And I agree with you. This came out quire well despite being handheld in low light on a rapidly moving subject. I'm OK with this result. TY for the compli. And an e/m reply is coming your way soon. (Wave)

Gary... I believe your decision to forego using that Speedlite flash unit was sound and prudent to say the least!!! :-)
