I also quite like the easyJet one!

It’s a shame though that Bristol just doesn’t get any variety of traffic. Pre lockdown we used to also get Monarch, Thomas Cook, Thompson (now TUI), a regular aer Lingus service.

Now it’s just a lot of orange and a lot of blue 😔

Cool pics. :)

Are you sure there’s weather that exists that doesn’t just consist of just clouds? Might be a fairy tale.

Nice shots! All the planes looks so shiny. Nice work!

Βrilliant shots 🤩

Love this picture!
Suggestion: if you wanna prevent a nearly all-white background (like the one below here), you can mask the aircraft and sky individually and make the sky darker

Impossible. It can’t exist

Thank you!

Would work if I could be bothered to do masking 🤣. Editing is my least favourite part of spotting, so I tend not to spend an incredible amount of time on it 😅

Fair enough man. Dude I hate masking, that’s why I take so long to edit shots from just ONE spotting session 💀

The fun part of spotting is the part where you actually go spotting, and talk with friends, imo. Least fun parts are going home and editing.

I have lots of photos that are yet to get a topic. RIAT 22, 23, a number of visits to Heathrow, none of which have been uploaded because I just haven’t got the time to waste on editing.

The auto mask in lightroom is getting smarter, but unfortunately it’s not enough to really use in place of manually masking. A full spotting session can be well over 100 photos, narrowed down from over 2000. I just do very simple colour and lighting corrections to speed up the process 😔

I like to mask in Photoshop for some reason (I know some guys like onemoreweektogo do that too), and yeah you’re right the auto mask tools are most definitely getting smarter but it still can’t recognize small gaps, e.g. near the landing gear and the wings

Felt on a personal level @Altaria55’s got a whole session edited before I finish enough for an IFC topic.

Smh, this is why Adam is clearly the better photographer

at this point I don’t even bother to edit narrowbodies unless they’re special 💀💀💀

WOW, great shots! What shutter speed did you use for this photo?

And the shutter speed for this one?

2 Likes

Thank you!

1/60 on the top one and 1/50 on the bottom one. I did manage to shoot some at an even slower speed, but I wasn’t using a tripod (they’re all handheld pans 🍳) so they didn’t come out great.

I’m still learning when it comes to panning shots, they aren’t something I do a tremendous amount of as most places I spot just don’t benefit from it.

Nice, thanks! I tried the background blur effect as well… not so easy.

The quality on these are so good. Those head on nose gear lights are always a attractive when your that close. Looks symmetrically framed and aligned perfectly.
