The Royal Air Force Red Arrows – a post that’s 4 years late

So this is one of those posts that took about 4 years to make. Its a long story but to cut it short, I took these photos in 2013 and I shot all of them in RAW. Now thing about me shooting in RAW is that I sometimes get OCD about tweaking and processing and sometimes I overthink certain shots to the extent that I end up deleting all the processed ones and start from scratch. Finally these ended up in my archives I forgot about them till recently.

Since this was an aerial show I used the ‘spray and pray’ technique in the hope that I’d get at least a dozen or so good ones. I ended up with around 300 frames and finally just worked on two dozen and finally 19 made the final cut. So here they are 4 years later and was it worth the wait? Heck no! I’m quite disappointed in them actually since I was using my 55-200mm that had poor contrast and vignetting around the edges. Here you go!

  1. They’re due for a visit soon so you could pretend that the photos are from this year’s visit. Glad to see you back on here!

    1. Yeah talk about coincidences right? I saw that they’re scheduled to perform in Kuwait after I uploaded the pictures.
      Thanks, I hope to be posting more in the coming months.
