In a series of images, photographer Eric Long demonstrates how he shoots the Museum's aircraft. In this images, you can see how Long uses light to produce a glare on the aircraft's fuselage. This helps to give the feeling of a metal surface in the final photo. In post processing, Long will combine this image with many others to create one composite shot.
