Still can’t figure out how to stop the sky burning out, it was a lovely blue. I’ll get there eventually
In this instance, I’d say the sky burning out is mainly as a result of being in a relatively dark area, amongst the trees, when you started it. There is a limit as to the dynamic range that can be captured.
Yes that sounds about right, I’m a reasonably competent photographer but it’s a bit different when the camera is buzzing above your head will experiment more and perhaps manual exposure is the way to go. I may be wrong but the Mavic Pro camera is not the best for handling dynamic range.
I usually use manual exposure.
For the one above, I’m not sure how I’d approach it, but normally (100ft up, or more) I use a view at 90 degrees to the sun with between 1/4 and 1/3 sky … depending on how much detail in the sky there is to try and accommodate it.
That one was done early this morning with the sun low and totally hidden by the trees. The sky was a clear blue with no cloud whatsoever (bizarre for us Scots) I could cheat with photoshop of course but I prefer to limit tweaking. It’s all a learning experience
