If you either live or are visiting Arizona and haven't already, absolutely take the time to check these 2 places out, especially if you are a photographer. They have so many different types of planes it is just ridiculous.
The Pima Air and Space Museum is made up of several large hangars, with a couple hundred planes parked outside that you can walk around and inspect up close.
The "Boneyard" is on an Airforce base, and you tour it on a bus that you cannot exit, so all of those photos where take on a bus through a window. There are probably several thousand
military planes there in many different states of storage, repair or salvage. I took a quick walking tour of the main Hangar, then rode on the Boneyard tour, then came back and rode on the Pima Shuttle tour for the outdoor planes. I think I spend about 7 hours there just looking, taking pictures and walking around. An absolutely fascinating place.
All images were taken with a Canon 5Diii
and a Canon 24-70 2.8L
. Nearly all of the indoor images that look "Painted" were done with Michael Andrew Paintballer Pro ® - "Grenade" - Preset
. It took me about 20 seconds to process all of them using that set. (For some reason, Paintballer makes KILLER images of Planes parked in hangars).
