In past years this would be the week where I would be cleaning up and finishing the photographs that I took at the Planes of Fame Airshow. Unfortunately due to recent events, the Airshow was canceled this past weekend. While this was a major bummer for the aviation and especially warbird enthusiast, like previous events and other photographers, there are plenty of images in the files that can still be worked on.
One of the biggest issues when working with airplanes is the amount of dust that gets kicked up and inevitably lands on the camera sensor. This leads to those lovely little black dust spots on the photography which have to be removed. As you can see form a previous Planes of Fame Airshow, I’ve had to deal with that in the past. Adobe Camera Raw makes it really easy to deal with that with the spot remover tool. You can highlight a spot, change the size of the spot, the location where it pulls from, and even apply those settings onto other photographs that have the same issue. It’s a handy quick way to fix that troublesome issue.
