Chantilly

Last year was the first time I noticed holiday decorations at Dulles International Airport. It’s pretty cool because they light up the huge windows in the front with red, blue and green lights alternating. They can be seen from the interior and exterior, but I really enjoyed the interior because they also added Christmas trees on top of the doors. It made me smile while I was walking through, even if I was just there to photograph the decor and I wasn’t even traveling. LOL.

And yes, I had saved this image for a year just so I could share it when it was holiday-appropriate.

My camera settings for this image is F4 at 1/30th sec and ISO 500 with my Sony A7II and 16-35mm wide-angle lens.

This is the back, and this is the front.

The Udvar-Hazy Center is another one of those places where you can’t use tripods in the DC area. Its understandable because this place can get really busy and it would just get in the way. So what do you do if you have to take a long exposure photo? Hold your breath!

This past weekend I was at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center Air and Space Museum in Chantilly, Virginia. Although this wasn’t my first time there (seen here), I took a different approach this time. I thought about how some photographs I’ve seen look kinda hectic. There are plane and other sorts of flying objects on the ground, in the air, and sometimes right in you face. I thought I’d try to find the more simple things and concentrate on lines. I love how the helicopter propellers lead your eye into the image.

This image of the space shuttle Enterprise was taken in May 2010. I wanted to rework some of my older stuff because I’ve been doing HDR photography for almost a year now and I feel as though I’ve gotten better at it. So reworking some of my older pictures to see how much I’ve improved seemed appropriate.

This was shot at the new (and better) Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in Chantilly, VA.

Let me know what you think 🙂
