#flying #dji #mavic #mini in harsh light in the middle of a #winter day in #florida. looks one can get good images, even just quickly editing on the instagram ios app (some of these shots may be lacking vibrancy.. i discovered a bug in the #instagram app later in the evening when posting images i had shot at sunset, where it was losing the lux setting). #mavicmini #quadcopter #drone #aerial #fromabove #lookingdown #aerialphotography #nature #road #golfcourse #houses #trees
often we just need to move forward through whatever resistance we may have, however it shows up in our lives.  upon doing so we can realize new, greater perspectives in life.  how and where we're looking from make all the difference.

images from first test flight with #dji #mavic #mini #quadcopter #drone (not really composed, just what i happened to get with timed interval photo mode as i was trying out the controls and fly app).

a simple shift of perspective is all we need to see the bigger picture.

it was great to see after this flight that the gopro was barely hanging on as one of the tightening knobs was hanging off the side and about to fall off! i'm grateful that somehow it miraculously held on and made it back in one piece!

more photos while practicing #flying the #dji #mavic #mini #quadcopter #drone.  shot using timed shot interval mode, so more of what i happened to get rather than carefully composed.

in the last shot, one can see the intracoastal, dunedin causeway, and honeymoon island, 4 to 7.5 miles away by air.  at the left of the image one can see buildings on clearwater beach, over 10 miles away.  even on the low resolution instagram photo hints of this are visible when looking closely or zooming in.  i think that shot was at an altitude of a little under 400 feet, where most of the lower ones were somewhere around 100-150 ft.

(i had quickly edited this twice in the #instagram ios app, though there seems to be a bug where it is not applying the lux setting and most of the vibrancy is missing as the other settings were minor.  these copies are edited in the #snapseed ios app.. it’s not an exact match to what i had originally done in instagram, but looks much better than the instagram versions without the lux setting.  at some point i may stop editing (or spending as much time and effort) on the phone, as even when it does work right, the adjustments made on a tiny phone screen are not as good as i could get on the computer, and often the color or density is off since the phone screen isn’t calibrated like a computer monitor can be)

#flying #dji #mavic #mini. #morning #light #trees #nature #road #water #houses #fromabove #mavicmini #aerial #aerialphotography #florida #winter

it’d be much easier to do the aerial shots with a first person live view of what the camera is seeing or with a preprogrammed fly by gps waypoint system that modern quadcopters have.. not having either, i had to guess composition + direction and try to keep track of the tiny white dot in the sky and trust it’d come back :)

some locations include:

Crystal Beach
Dunedin Causeway
Fred Howard Park
Honeymoon Island State Park
Wall Springs Park
