B-29 Superfortress FiFi Cockpit B&W

B-29 Superfortress FiFi Cockpit B&W

Cockpit view of the Boeing B-29 Superfortress bomber "FiFi". This photo was taken 7 June 2014 at Mather Field, Ca. during her west coast tour. FiFi was there all weekend allowing for several flights and photo opportunities. I was on the official photo tour that started at 5 am and lasted into the afternoon. Sunrise photos were void of clouds that would make a more dramatic looking sky, but still, the photos were good. Camera used was the Canon 5D Mark III and a Tokina AT-X 16-28mm F2.8 PRO FX lens. I used a Canon ETX-530 strobe to balance the interior/exterior lighting.
A lot of time was spent in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom balancing the light from the strobe. The image is so wide that the foreground was much brighter. Most of the work was "Dodging & Burning" with Lightroom's Brush Tool. A small amount of vignetting was applied.
