Felipe’s Post-Processing Quick/Basic Workflow

By: Category: Uncategorized

Hello!!

Today, I finally get to do something I’ve been wanting to do for ages: a quick post-processing workflow for aviation photos.

First of all, this post isn’t meant to be a 400 level course on how to Lightroom, nor Lightroom 101, and it does not cover advanced editing techniques, but, it does show a workflow that works for maybe 80-90% of my aviation photos. I am assuming that you know the basics of Lightroom, or have asked Google/Reddit/YouTube/Me.

Oshkosh’s airport, Wittman Field or Wittman Regional Airport is typical for a city of this size, but looks are deceiving. Wittman has 4 runways, the longest being Runway 18-36 is 8,002 feet long. This allows aircraft as large as the A380, 747-8F, B-52, and C-5 to operate in and out.

This iteration of Flag (RF 17-3) is the one RF training event of the year to have no foreign participation. One of the biggest take-aways from this exercise was the ability to integrate four different fifth-generation platforms into a Red Flag exercise.
