Decided to try my go at some video shooting a few weekends ago. The weather was overcast, cold, and less than ideal for stunning photo shots.
Despite all of that, I decided to see if I could catch anything that caught my creative eye. I did find a lovely place to shoot and it started snowing just as I was setting up. Normally, I don’t like to fly in the snow for safety reasons, but the area was clear and safe.
I was really pleased with the final edit from this little adventure. This video clip is a good reminder for me that even in the darkest of days, if our minds are open and our hearts are centered, we can still find beauty to enjoy and share.
My first 360 video on one of my custom Quadcopters. It. was a beautiful cold day with the family enjoying the view letting dad take a quick flight over one of my favorite local MetroParks. I love ducks, Swans and wildlife. I find it fascinating that wildlife survives in such cold temperatures and swim in it. Good things coming.
After a whole week with no sunshine, I finally saw a break in the clouds and drove as fast as I could "legally" to Newburgh Lake in Livonia Michigan. The park was empty as it was very cold.
I was flying and saw this beautiful swan. I never want to disrupt nature when I fly, but become part of it. Oddly enough it seems like ducks, swans, and geese, do not seem to be bothered with my quadcopter.
This video is with a custom built 5 inch quadcopter I built myself. It incorporates the newest DJI FPV System. I am planning to post a review of this system as I test it a bit more, but so far I have been blown away with it's performance.
My confidence level as a pilot has increased 100%. It uses a digital signal rather than the traditional analog video feed that gets sent from the drone's camera to the goggles I wear when I fly. It's like going from watching a worn VHS tape with static and lines to watching a DVD. I will still use analog as it has it's benefits, but I think I am hooked on this new system.
I apologize for not visiting my favorites blogs and posting much this month. I've been super busy at my real job and battling a bad cold 🥶. Probably from taking too many pictures like this 😂.
Hope to visit you all soon and have a blessed week !
I feel bad that I haven't had much time to post or follow all my Wordpress friends and artists lately. I've been very busy at work trying to "catch up" with this being my last week before the holiday break.
Here is a photo from this past fall, that I really like how it turned out. It was a foggy morning in Northern Michigan. You could feel the moisture and the chilled air on your face. The pines and outdoor air smelled fresh with dew and was miraculously uplifting to the senses.
Remember, if I don't get to your pages, remember I try and am thinking of all of my wonderful artists 🐼😊!
