Museum Of Aviation-Young Astronauts Day 2017

May 13, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Every year the Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins, Georgia hosts a really cool educational experience called Young Astronauts Day. It's a day to introduce kids to STEM industries and careers. There are a lot of educational activities, professionals and demos for the kids to enjoy throughout the day.

Once again, the Museum of Aviation invited me to photograph the day for them to use the photography for their social media and marketing purposes. This presented plenty of photographic challenges. I was constantly shooting between indoor and outdoor scenes. So I had to make sure my settings we always appropriate with the environment at the time.

I used my usual camera setup, or dual-wielded my Nikon D7000 and 7100. I used my Tamron 70-200mm/F2.8 and my 17-50mm/F2.8. Occasionally I had to use my Nikon SB-700 flash unit in areas where it was just too dark. I also had two quick portrait sessions with two Museum of Aviation volunteers earlier in the day so the Museum can make some Movie-Style posters. Those were a lot of fun and they came out great. I set up my 2 flash units to provide full and even lighting in the dark museum setting. This produced a great effect and I was very happy with the whole day came out.
