Wow, it’s crazy to think that it’s been over a year since my last production project! So to help get things in motion for 2016, I recently purchased a DJI Phantom 3 Advanced drone with a FULL HD video camera on it. I thought this would be a fun way for me to get my feet wet being that I’ve never owned a drone, at least not a legit one like this. Having the ability to capture aerial shots has always been something that I’ve yearned for, so why not make it happen now.
Here are some pictures that I have captured of the sunrise and sunset from Medford, Massachusetts, which is about 5 miles north/ west of Boston. In a few of the photographs that I took, you can actually see some of the Boston skyscrapers like the Prudential and the John Hancock Building.
Thus far, I’m pretty satisfied with this bad boy. The quality of the camera is good, not the best, but for the price and the ability to get these shots, I don’t think you can beat it. At the moment I am in the process of doing some research on various filters that I could attach to it, but even with the basic lens that DJI supplies, I’m a fan. And I do have some video footage that I have also taken but haven’t gotten around to editing yet. For now, enjoy these shots from my first 3 test flights.
