Processing a Space Shuttle Endeavour Flyby Photo Using Lightroom

When Space Shuttle Endeavour was making low level flyovers of famous landmarks across the United States a couple of months ago, Adobe Lightroom Quality Engineer Ben Warde was able to photograph it flying by the Golden Gate Bridge. The 10-minute video above shows how Warde post-processed one of his best shots from that day using basic Lightroom adjustments. While the information may be basic for many of you, it should be helpful for people who are just starting out with programs like Lightroom, Adobe Camera Raw, or Aperture.

Here’s are the before and after photos showing what Warde started with and where he ended up:

You can find a few more shots Warde captured in this Facebook album.

If you found this tutorial helpful, you should check out the official Lightroom account over on YouTube. It’s loaded with a good number of instructional videos that’ll get you on your own in the world of post-processing.
