The Art of Aviation & Defence Photography: Seeing the Unseen

The human eye could be considered in many ways superior to a high specification digital camera.  This presentation will highlight that, although this may be true in many circumstances,  often there are details, events or phenomena that happen in plain sight that are not seen in detail by the human eye, either due to their short lived transient nature, or because the human eye is not attuned to seeing such details. This is where digital photography can provide a window into this momentary world of fleeting action.
