Artist's Description

I TOOK THIS IMAGE OF A “MUSTANG AND TRAINER JET”, ONE DAY WHILE UP AT YOLO SPORTSMAN’S ASSOCIATION. IT IS MY LOCAL SHOOTING RANGE AND IT JUST HAPPENS TO BE ACROSS THE ROAD FROM YOLO AVIATION PARK AND WOODLAND AIRPORT IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. THE OWNER OF THE P-51 MUSTANG JUST HAPPENS TO BE THE OWNER OF THE TRAINER JET. THE JET WAS PURCHASED FROM RUSSIA SEVERAL YEARS AGO AND HAS BEEN FRAME UP REBUILT. THE MUSTANG, ALSO KNOWN AS VOODOO 5, WAS ALSO FRAME UP REBUILT SEVERAL YEARS AGO. THE VOODOO HAS A RADIO CONTROLLED MODEL DESIGNED AFTER IT. I’M NOT SURE OF THE MAKER, BUT YOU CAN FIND IT AT YOUR LOCAL R/C DEALER. THIS IMAGE HAD SUCH A BAD SKY, ALL GREY, THAT I HAD TO DO SOMETHING TO MAKE THE PHOTO MORE LIKEABLE. I DON’T REMEMBER THE PROCESS I USED TO GET TO THIS FINAL STAGE, BUT IT WAS THE BEST I FOUND. I USED THE SAME EFFECT FOR A COUPLE OF OTHER DULL SHOTS AS WELL. I WISH I HAD USED A SLOWER SHUTTER SPEED IN THIS SHOT TO BLUR THE PROPELLAR, BUT THE EXHAUST OUT OF THE BACK OF THE JET GIVES A SENSE OF MOTION AND FORWARD SPEED, WHERE HAD THERE BEEN NOT EXHAUST, THE PLANES WOULD HAVE LOOKED FROZEN IN MID AIR AND NOT LIKE THEY HAVE MOTION.
