Here’s another shot taken in 2008 at the Wings Over Houston air show, processed much the same as explained in my previous post. Takes some kind of skill to fly this close and inverted. A real treat to watch and photograph.
Hint: I used Alien Skin’s Bokeh plug-in for Photoshop to smooth the desaturated blue background. This incredible little plug-in is a great way to reduce color noise in your images, especially in the blue sky. This technique makes your subject “pop” and look really sharp when compared to the smooth, even tones in the background.
