Cool shot Tim. Love the perspective.
Rich, thank you. There are two Blackbirds and a U-2D on this small site plus other equipment and engines. Quite a challenge to photograph. Here is the site for the Airpark. http://afftcmuseum.org/visit/blackbird-airpark/
I love this — it reminds me that sometimes a shot has much more impact if you focus on one detail rather than trying to capture the whole thing 🙂
Thank you. You are correct. Some aircraft and cars have such wonderful designs.
Great shot! Love that place! Lived in Palmdale for around 5 years.
Thank you. It is a great place but very tough to get good shots between 11 and 4 when it is open.
Fantastic photo – I would love to see on eof the Blackbirds, amazing planes.
Very cool, Tim!
Rawls thank you. Should be more from the Blackbird Airpark.
Now that is a very good shot!
If you don’t mind me asking, what equipment and filters or software do you use. Feel in love with this style, very surreal and crisp.
I’m shooting with a Canon 70D and Tamron 16-300mm lens. I use Lightroom 6/CC and NIK filters. The NIK filters are responsible most of the “strange” images that you see. I find Lightroom and NIK filters to be very good and I’ve not spent money on other filters. I believe that both NIK and Lightroom offer a 30 trial period. hope this helps.
Great thank you, I’ll give those a try!
I’m glad to be of help. Best with all of your endeavors
