Revisiting & Reprocessing Old HDR

It was only seven years ago when I took this photo, one that has always been one of my favorites. It’s of Kermit Week’s P-51C Red Tail, “Ina the Macon Belle,” a photo I took great care to set up for the light for the ground fog.

It’s a helluva process that the dedicated folks at Turin Aviation are taking on with the greatest professionalism. At the same time, the Turin crew sets about stripping out other old wiring and replacing the windows. For them, it’s just another day at the office wrenching on aircraft. And for us at Peterson and Sons Productions, it’s the kind of target rich arena we live for! That brings us down to the simple challenge of telling this story visually to you. Our D850s during this three-day on-site work...
