This multimedia piece was created with still imagery captured with a Canon G9. The RAW images were processed to TIFF’s using Adobe Camera Raw.

The video was captured with a Flip Video unit. The original AVI file must be converted to a MOV file, or something else compatable, before editing can begin in Adobe Premiere. A123 AVI to WMV DVD MPEG MP4 MOV Converter was used to complete the conversion. Individual video segments were limited to five seconds through Time/Duration tool.

The audio was captured with the Flip. The clip was unlinked from the video and Adobe Premiere was used to edit the dead air out resulting in a time compressed audio track.

Inside this hangar is the Space Shuttle Enterprise as well as a variety of other space artifacts. The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center at National Air and Space Museum is located near the Dulles international Airport in Chantilly, Va. This center is the companion site to the National Air and Space Museum located on the National Mall.

While at the museum Point Park University students had an opportunity to talk to one of the institution photographers Dane Penland. Penland illustrated the lighting strategies at the center and spoke about some of the techniques he uses to produce images and illustrations for publications at the museum.
