Miami Airport Photos and a 50mm Lens :: MIA-ATL

Approach into Miami

Miami Airport in 50mm

Roof in Miami airport

This the third and final part of my airport in a 50mm lens perspective (see ATL part 1 and DEN part 2), at least until I jump on another plane and end up at an airport other than ATL, DEN, and MIA. Miami was the most difficult out of the three to shoot. It was hot, humid (yes I was inside), very very crowded, and all under construction.

That just means I had to look around more than I usually do and find something that said this was MIA and was (to me) photographically pleasing. For this post, I chose these 4 images below.

I love the second shot, the plane. This old plane was restored and hung from one of the walks between terminal buildings. What caught my attention was the print just below the name of the pilot.

Passengers travel in this vehicle at their own risk

I did find one nice architectural images of this roof line which seemed to open like a bottle top. I would have preferred to get the faces of the travelers but in an airport you must be wise when holding the camera. With so many irritated passengers around every bend waiting for delayed flights, I wasn’t real interested in inflaming the minds of many.

I always liked the Miami airport. So much diversity even in the airport itself, but modernizing the terminals (which they are doing) would also make it a nice place to fly into while waiting for a long connection. All images in each part of this shoot were taken with a Nikon D700 (in full frame FX mode), hand held, with a 50mm Nikkor f/1.4 lens. Comments, suggestions, critique, or criticism are all welcome. These are shown in the order they were taken.

To see the larger sizes all at once just click on the first image to open the light box gallery and you can scroll through the larger sizes that way.

  1. I’m thinking about grabbing a cannon 50mm lens for my Rebel. I think these shots make me want to grab it more. I’m going to go look at the rest now! Great shots thanks!

  2. Miami looks like a nice airport…we missed it by a few…I’m flying into ft. Lauderdale next month on my way to Haiti…originally Miami but somehow it got changed. Gotta love the 50mm1.4…mine seldom leaves my camera, although I’ve gotta say that my 35mmf2 has given it a run for it’s money.
