Warbirds and the art in the plane

I was given an opportunity to photograph some Warbirds, which are historic aircraft. I didn’t want to create a bunch of boring record shots, rather I wanted to make photos that even people who aren’t interested in planes could enjoy. Planes are often curvaceous creatures that have all sorts of interesting shapes and patterns, so they have great photographic potential. It’s impossible to precisely describe my methodology, but it goes something like this: forget that it’s a plane and instead look at light and shadow, shape, colour, patterns, and reflections. When we can see those things we can see the art in the plane.
