“Star Tours”

This portrait of C-3PO was taken during the Star Tours attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  For this picture, I wanted to stray away a bit from the typical queue-line shot of C-3PO and try to get one of him sitting inside the cockpit.  As you know, there are only a precious few seconds where he is looking back into the cabin as opposed to most of the ride where he looks at the view-screen so I set the camera and fired away as soon as he looked back prior to the shuttle launching.  To try to sneak a shot while the ride is in motion would be very difficult to both focus and get a sharp, clean image.

Post processing consisted of some adjustments in Lightroom and a few presets to get the look to where I wanted it to be.
