This photograph of a USAF fighter jet from the Nellis AFB, Aviation Nation Air Show is a great example of how the details are the most important part of the image. The image is missing about 75% of the plane in the photograph, but immediately upon seeing it you are drawn into the cockpit along with the pilot and co-pilot. The missing information is irrelevant, but what is there really sells the image. The detail in the blurred background also tells a story that the plane is moving and the fact that the cockpit is closed tells you they are just beginning or ending there flight. This is one of my favorite styles of photography, because if you nail the image you can throw out all the detracting info and focus on the details.
The Nellis Air Show happens every year in November in Las Vegas, NV.
Details Make The Image
