Photography in tight spots – Beechcraft C90

Well its not really that nice of a machine, but there are certianly worse ones out there!

A few key points to remember when limited to a single flash and not GPU:

  1. Always bounce the flash
  2. Think about where the flash reflection is gonna end up, it will probably end up in a lot of shots if there is nice paneling or the like.
  3. Get the flash with the softbox attached (stoffen or similar) as high up, for example on the seat headrests, this will eliminate the shadows created when having the flash down low.
  4. get another flash 🙂
  5. Composition is key – no amount of PP or tricky light work will help if the composition blows.
  6. Composition should try and make the aircraft look bigger than what it is, using leading lines where possible, like the sidewall panelling, try lower POV’s.
  7. Always neaten up the seat belts and harness, smooth out any wrinkles in the trim or covering.

The King Air was the first aircraft in its class and has been in continuous production since 1964. It has outsold all of its turboprop competitors combined. The Model 90 series is the only small twin-turboprop business aircraft in production. It now faces competition from jet aircraft such as the Beechcraft Premier I and Cessna Citation Mustang as well as newer single-engine turboprop aircraft, namely the Piper Malibu and Socata TBM.
