Behind The Lens

Location

On the Ramp in front of the Abbott Aviation Center, part of the aviation program at LeTourneau University in Longview Texas.

Time

Mid Afternoon.

Lighting

The sun was about 45 degrees above the horizon and to my back as I took this. You can see in the reflection on the right Nacell where the sun was. I played a lot with light and highlights in post-processing

Equipment

A Nikon D800E fitted with a 14-28 f/2.8 lens on a Manfrotto Tripod.

Inspiration

I am an airplane nut and this particular aircraft is the 1940's, a vintage aircraft as they say. It just begs to have its picture taken. Couldn't help myself.

Editing

There were five images to put together separated by one stop each. This in itself produced a great image but I added some color to make it look like either a colorful sunrise or sunset and I like the results.

In my camera bag

Nikon D800E, Olympus T-4 Tough. Nikkor 85mm f/1.8, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8, Nikkor 16mm Fisheye, Nikkor 28-300mm Zoom, Sigma 150 - 600mm Sport Zoom, a flash unit, wireless remote release, a variety of filters and a Manfrotto Tripod equipped with a Ball Head.

Feedback

In post-processing it sometimes pays to play with the image and try a number of things. You might find something that you like.
