Sticking with the “commercial” shoot idea, I shot a bunch of full page / cover layout format photos. I went with 1/90 the whole time because I liked the white tip props with the white paint making that full circle. If you’ve ever looked at what images are being used in this way, you often see planes like the A36 Bonanza with couples in the plane. They story line is they hopped into their plane and jet off for the weekend. So keeping with that theme, we had a gorgeous blond next to Casey during the shoot.
Wait, I know that gorgeous blond, that’s my wife! Yeah, Sharon loves this aviation stuff as much as I and in fact, she had her camera in the Bonanza with her shooting away. She was shooting so much, we had to radio the Bonanza and tell her to stop for a while and just enjoy the ride so we could get what you’re seeing here. How cool is that?!
Of course, I’m still wondering what story Kevin told his wife to explain why a gorgeous blond was in the second seat of their plane.
