I used a super wide angle lens, a Sigma 10-20mm, for these photos. I wanted to convey a sense of speed by distorting the perspective.
For the shot above, I hoisted my camera up high by using a monopod.
Here are some more shots from the visit.
For this shot, I put a flash with a full CTO gel in the afterburner, and another with a 1/2 CTB gel on the right wing. This enabled me to give the impression that the engine is firing up.
Next time, I'll bring a duster.
The cockpit of a SAAB J35 Draken (Dragon).
The J29 Flying Barrel is one of my favorites. I did the flash-in-the-engine trick again with this one, to make the picture a bit more interesting.
Cow? Well, yes, there were plenty of cows in the fields outside the Aeroseum area.
