Fighter Pilot enhanced photography

Fighter Pilot poster photo

Fighter Pilot…  This is my attempt to emulate the look-and-feel of a war poster from the ‘forties.

It started with a fairly ordinary photograph of my daughter, just before she left in a USAF  F-16 fighter plane (actually, she’s a maintenance officer – not a pilot).

Using PhotoShop, I eliminated the ordinary stuff in the background, and then reduced the image to three basic color zones:  gray, green, and flesh-tones. The washed-out white framing around the outside finished the look.  I must say, i t worked out well.

I love the picture for a variety of reasons.
