Space Shuttle Discover: How I took the shot

December 29, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
The last entry I mentioned that I would share how I got this image.  This is the Space Shuttle Discovery located in the Udvar-Hazy Air and Space museum near Dulles airport in Virginia.


The camera is the same as it has been.  I shoot with a Canon Rebel XS.  I was shooting with an EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM lens.  I rented it for the week, since the trip involved a wedding.  I shot this with ISO 400, f/4.5, at 1/30 sec.  This was zoomed in at 28mm.  I was not using a tripod.  If the lens did not have image stabilization, I would never have gotten this.

In the Udvar-Hazy ther eis a walkway that is very high up.  I shot from there into the Boing Avation Hall, where all the space objects are held.

Now onto the editing.  As with all my photos, Lightroom 4.3 is in use.  This was pretty easy to edit.  Not a whole lot of changes came from the RAW file.

Below are the settings I used.

Notice I bumped clarity up.  This added an very good effect to the shot.  On top of that, I enabled Profile Corrections to flatten the image out.

That is it.  I thought it turned out pretty well.

Thanks for the read,
