I’m in the fortunate position to have done many A2A shoots. Many of these shoots involve F-16’s and I don’t want to sound like a spoiled kid, but after a couple of flights you kinda have seen it from a photographic point of view. It’s always a thrill and amazing to do these flights, but the shots are almost exactly the same.
By changing the background or editing the photos differently you can try and make different photos. But sometimes that’s not necessary. Like on this specific flight nothing was needed to make a different F-16 photo. The plane itself was enough. The special tiger paint looks so good, certainly when set against the blue skies and white clouds. This paint is one of my all time favorites because of its simplicity.
The photos below are the result of the first of two photoflights I did last September. Part II will follow in a couple of weeks.
