Stallion 51 is Outstanding!

We headed to Stallion 51 for our sunset shoot where the folks at Stallion 51 rolled out the red carpet for us, literally! KT & Willie couldn’t have done more us, rolling out a L-39, P-51D & T-6 on the tarmac for us to photograph. Left in the hangar were three other P-51Ds like this one that we could work to our hearts content. The safari participants went nuts, totally getting into this aviation photography thing. (I kinda like my quick flash work on this one, not bad for a lonely wildlife guy.)

We had models on the wings, in the cockpit, kissing the prop, doing classic ’40s pinup posses on the aircraft, it was a ton of fun. Then when the light went down folks went in to watch McNally work the flashes which left the planes all by themselves. Many were out there beside me shooting, some who never thought a plane an interesting subject but now admitted in person and by email (already) that they are hooked. It couldn’t have been a better finish to the great day! (This is a simple 1click HDR.)
