Heya everyone. My name is Mat, and I have been flying my drone(s) now since March. It is a new hobby of mine that I have recently got into and I have to say I have been having lots of fun getting out and about and doing some videos and photography. Prior to picking up my first drone I was never enthusiastic about photography, however since I have come to really enjoy it and I am now super enthusiastic getting around and getting some shots!
My first drone which I picked up was the Mavic Mini back in March. Just recently (past couple of weeks) I forked out for a Mavic Air 2 for the additional features and 4k. I plan on using both for the foreseeable future and switching them out based on practicality. I will probably take my mini abroad with me seeing that it is a lot smaller and easier to carry around. My Air 2 I will use for videos and photography around the area and nationwide.
Since picking up the Air 2 I have passed the online CAA test and I have been keeping drone safe and applying common sense whilst abiding by aviation laws.
Right now, I post all my photographs to my Instagram @matperry94. I have also posted a few videos to my new YouTube channel (linked below). I also have a Flickr where I upload all my photos in full quality.
I have been reading up about ND filters and all the extras we as drone users can apply to achieve greater results. For the Mavic Air 2 I have been using the ND16 filter (during daylight) with shutter speed 1/60 and 30FPS. For the Mavic Mini I have not actually used any ND filters and I seem to have achieved some good results with both photo and video.
Other than that, I am 25 years old (turning 26 this year) and again I am from Mid Devon. I am not very good at introductions, but I think I covered most things. I look forward to engaging more with this community and sharing what I capture with you guys. I also look forward to seeing all your content!
