A rather powerful title I realize but when you hear my reason why it will make sense. The best kind of background is one that needs no finishing and tells a story so well that subject may not even be there. When it comes to work with planes thus becomes so important that Dad and I actually search more for the backgrounds than we do the planes. It’s so hard to find an airport with power lines, houses or other stuff in the background cluttering up the story.
One of the best elements for a background is mother natural herself. Fog can be the best camouflage you can ask for when it comes to working with planes. Not only does it do the heavy lifting for you but it also can bring out some amazing colors. The only catch is you have to get up early before the ground heats up in order to catch those foggy mornings.
