Aviation

Use Light to Bring out the Details

A big part of aviation is actually the little parts. The details of each aircraft help to define that aircraft and need to be photographed individually as well as a whole. But how do you do that? One of the most romantic ways is to use a little spot lighting either with a flash, a pen light or in this case the light coming through the windows of a hangar. Then by dialing in minus exposure compensation, you get a nice moody romantic look to these otherwise cold planes. these detail shots are essential to the story and help to create another layer of depth to the planes. While they are rather simple to do not every photographer does them so I highly encourage you to try and incorporate this into your own photography.
