Behind the Scenes: Post-Production of Cockpit Image

I shot this Dassault Falcon 2000 cockpit and cabin interiors for the great people at Dumont Aviation in New Castle DE (ILG for you flying folks!). They want their planes to pop in a way that a simple snapshot can't handle. We started by lighting the cockpit with wireless strobes on 10.5' C-stands (you can see the actual shoot setup in a previous post).

But shooting is only part of it. A typical image takes me 4-5x longer in post-production that it does to shoot it. Below you can see the original image, the markup notes, and the final image as delivered to the client.

Here is a short video that compresses (most of) the job from 2 hours down to a few minutes. Enjoy!
