Limited-Edition Photographs of Different Models and Eras of Airplanes
Aviation photography is a very specific discipline of the eighth art. It requires total mastery of lighting – to obtain high-quality photos – since the subjects are mainly out of doors. There are thousands of different models of planes. We find American planes, military planes, commercial planes, all kinds of designs, light planes, white planes, etc. To create beautiful photos against a white background, it is recommended to photograph specific parts of the plane, such as the wings, by visiting international airports for instance, to obtain a wide range of models and thus create prestigious and collectable images. Planes have the particularity of often being photographed both static and in motion. Many photographers capture planes taking off, or during the flight, with cloud photographs. Aviation remains a unique field that is very intriguing for the general public but also for professional photographers.
Renowned international photographers have turned this practice into a true art form. We can now distinguish two variations in these photographs. A second type of aviation photography, practiced by Olivier Lavielle for instance, consists of taking shots of planes on the ground. This approach is more interested in detail and aims to highlight the elegant lines of these impressive machines. The talented artists of YellowKorner convey many emotions through their gaze: strength, resilience, and sensuality. This technological prowess that aircraft represent is revealed through the photographic apparatus, along with their bewitching and fascinating power.
