In a series of images, photographer Eric Long demonstrates how he shoots the Museum's aircraft. In these images, you can see how Long lights sections of the aircraft including the back landing gear, portions of the fuselage, and under carriage that are not well lit by his above-camera light. In post processing, Long will combine multiple images to create one fantastic shot.
