Photo Spot Details

There are two things that are interesting to see. Of course the planes, but also the old building a large glass-encased round structure that looks like a strange mushroom from outer space that has sprouted in the middle of Srem’s cultivated fields which was designed by Ivan Štraus. There are planes on the outside of the museum. They are unfortunately left to deteriorate by weather but that gives them a pretty nostalgic look which looks beautiful on your camera. The other part is inside the museum where you can find lots of planes and helicopters. Don’t expect to look at state-of-the-art stuff because there are mostly planes that show Serbia’s aviation history.

Tips:

1. If you are bringing a tripod you can only use it outside of the museum. They do not allow to take the tripod inside.
2. Try wide-angle lenses They can really show how big these planes really are.
3. Since it is quite hard to get the picture where there is one plane isolated from the other try to get couple of them in frame and make a composition.
4. Waiting outside for sunset is a good option.
5. Polarising filters will come in handy.
6. Try to take pictures of details on planes.

    Are the outdoor portions still open at sunset? I have wanted to photograph this and hope I remember next time I am there! Thanks!
