Helicopter photos

Some helicopter photos of a Loyola LifestarĀ BK117 B2 taking flight from an on-scene pickup in Lincolnshire, IL at the Lincolnshire-Riverwoods FPD station. The company name is currently Lifestar Chicago, which is managed by Air Methods.

Once again, center spot focusing set on the helicopter all the time that I was looking through the viewfinder to keep sharp focus. When it rose clear of the buildings, I used my thumb to spin the exposure compensation dial to +2/3 stop compensating for the overall brightness introduced by the abundance of sky in the frame.
