Artist's Description

The F-22 Raptor up close and personal. Photographed from the fence line at 400mm (35mm conv). The guy next to me had a Canon 1D mk2 w/ 600mm and 1.4x converter. I asked him about his camera gear after he was done his shots. When he left, a guy dressed in a plaid shirt, blue jeans, oakley sunglasses and baseball cap walked up to me and asked what we were talking about.
I told him about the Canon gear that the guy had. He then asked me if that camera could photograph the inside of the cockpit. The answer was yes. 600mm x 1.4conv = 840mm, add the camera’s crop factor of 1.3 and you get 1,092mm!!!! at 8 mp. I told him that the HUD would fill the frame. Ten minutes later both canopies were closed on the F-22’s Homeland Security doesn’t play around!!!
