Took the drone out the morning after our first real snowfall here on the Cape. Had some clouds which provided a nice atmosphere and a decent sunset.
Having spent the last couple of weeks getting used to flying and taking all kinds of photos and videos I finally took the next step and downloaded Final Cut Pro X to try out. I have never worked with video before so it has been interesting trying to figure out the types of shots I need to take in order to have a good looking final product, but that is a whole different post.
After going back and forth a million times finally decided to pull the trigger and pick up a drone. I don’t do a lot of video work so I bought it primarily for still photography. Reviews were mixed on the quality of still shots from this drone but after the first day I am really happy with what I see. I more or less just let the camera do the work today but I did shoot in raw giving me some room in post to fix the exposures. All of the shots I took were plenty sharp and the raw files had plenty of room to work. Lot’s of data in the shadows with less in the highlights so going forward I will expose for the highlights and pull out the shadows in post which is easy enough with this camera.
