A day to remember unfolded as I explored the National Museum of the United States Air Force with my Canon AE-1. The Ilford 400 film, known for its fine grain and sharpness, was the perfect companion for capturing the majestic aircraft and their intricate details. I found myself in awe of the rich history and engineering marvels displayed before me.
Each exhibit offered unique photo opportunities, from the early Wright brothers’ creations to the impressive stealth bombers. The Canon AE-1’s manual controls allowed me to adjust aperture and shutter speed with ease, ensuring each photograph was a masterpiece.Among my favorite captures was the legendary SR-71 Blackbird, its sleek design rendered beautifully on film. The historic B-17 Flying Fortress, a symbol of World War II perseverance, also made for an unforgettable image.
