Luke Air Force Base 2014 Air Show – Excerpts from a Photo Shoot

A friend of mine and I attended the Air Show at Luke Air Force Base here in the Phoenix region two weeks ago. It was called Lightning in the Sky. Being familiar with air shows having lived north of MCAS Miramar in San Diego for many years, I knew that it would entail a great display of military aircraft old and new. The aerial acrobatics were incredible and the day was topped off by the infamous Blue Angles. All of that said, I thought it would be an interesting opportunity for a photo shoot of the different aircraft. Having never really focused on photographing airplanes and jets, I saw it as an opportunity to capture these proud birds with my artistic eye. I have attached 7 of the shots from that day in their raw form (no cropping). Not sure how I will take these and turn them into art prints, but I would assume a few will go into my Black and White Photography Gallery, a few to my Color Photography Gallery and some I will use as a basis for painting techniques. I will share some of the final art prints as I create them…enjoy!!

I couldn’t have asked for better lighting and I like the amount of detail I was able to capture.
