I was in London last week for some work bits and decided to bring the drone along. I had seen a thread about shooting around Tower Bridge and wanted to give it a go. It was a very still night bit super cold. Took off from Heritage Memorial Park as suggested on another thread and had a good 10/15 minutes in the air before my fingers got too cold to keep working. I was very pleased with how it all came out in the end.
Yea, I think you’re right about the gimbal. I kept tilting my head and trying to figure out if it was “just me” or if it was slightly tilted.
I have an A2CoC and I flew my Mavic 3 whilst doing my best to maintain the horizontal separation. I wanted to get good image quality at night from that big sensor. I think when I go back, I’ll use my mini 3 pro to give me more ability to swing over the buildings and London Bridge station a bit more for the opposite facing angle.
They are still your pictures. Yes, a watermark can be anything from a logo, a signature or just the word COPYRIGHT. I use a photoshop action that downsizes the file (suitable size for online), adds a black keyline around the edge and then pastes my logo on top.
I get why you do what you do John, especially of the quality you produce; I just wondered!
Personally, I think saving with copyright and/or watermark would be enough and showing off your photo at its best is king. But, I’m not a pro like yourself, so, in the unlikely event that anyone wanted to use my photos I’d say … jog on!
I also used the telephoto lens a bit. Definitely a bit of a quality hit vs the main sensor and I find the DNGs take a lot more sharpening and post processing but it did provide a nice different perspective!
