Background is everything. One of my Dad’s favorite catch phrases. He’s right of course. Background makes a big difference in the story of any photograph. One of my favorite shoots was a couple years back down in Mesa, AZ. We had for the second time a B-17G Flying Fortress, “sentimental Journey,” in an air to air shoot. Now when anyone says Arizona the first image that comes to mind is the desert and we had plenty of that to work with. Finding something else wasn’t too hard which helped to change the story.
