love the b/w I believe the lighting air display team ( in their day) performed the largest wing over ever recorded!

Behind The Lens

Location
Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground and Air Strip
Time
Feb 15th 2000hrs
Lighting
Using the aircrafts own landing lights and the building mounted flood lamps, opting to use the camera at 100 iso and long exposure times
Equipment
Canon EOS60D DSLR with a Sigma 17-70 F2.8 lens mounted on a Benro Travel angel tripod and Giottos MH1300 ballhead with remote shutter release, using standard Hoya UV filter
Inspiration
A love of all things from the Cold War period of UK history, in particular the RAF Lightning squadrons which where on standby day and night in all weather to intercept Soviet bombers and fighters
Editing
Minimal amount of processing using Photoshop Elements 7 with Topaz labs bolt on, the image is first tweeked in Topaz Adjust 5 to enhance the colours and sharpen the edges, then the image is converted to black and white using Topaz BW Effect and reprocessed
In my camera bag
2 Canon bodies one EOS60D and one EOS350D, Sigma 120-400mm F4.5 lens, Sigma 4.5mm F2.8 Fish Eye lens, Sigma 17-70mm F2.8 lens and Canon EFS 18-135mm F5.6 lens, various screw in filters ND4 and UV.
Feedback
Position and patience with long exposure images and very willing people to stand in one position for long periods of time
