.

While shooting aircraft over the years, he came to the realization that shooting air to air and getting the right angle, background and detail consistently was expensive, time consuming and impossible. So calling on his skills as a designer, he created a photo illustration technique that allows him to design and create beautiful large format detailed aircraft images just the way he envisions them.

The Concept...First Larry sketches out what he wants the final image to look like and then creates a shot list for the various parts of the image. Using this sketch guide he shoots the various parts of the image.

The Creation...

There are no short cuts in creating the final large format photo illustration. Larry starts by editing the shots down to the ones that will be used in the final master image ( that is usually around 6 to 10). This is where his background as a designer/artist comes in. The final 2 GB master image can take forty hours or more of painstakingly detailed work to combine all the photos, re-illustrate parts of the plane and scene, add reflections, take out landing gear, mask the plane and seamlessly integrate the plane into the background. The final stage is to color correct and balance the contrast in the final image.
