Taking Advantage of the Good Light
While hanging out at my brothers house a few weeks ago I had the chance to take my drone up and around where he lives. He has some unique scenery around his house that is fun to photograph. An abandoned campground that can look very interesting in good light. The best light for that is overhead though so during my morning flight I kept the drone to the cornfield across the street from his house. I loved the idea of the morning light streaming across the field and through the tops of the corn. I made a few other photos that morning, but this was my favorite.
Do What You Are Comfortable With
One thing that I quickly learned with the drone is that I should stay within my comfort zone with it. When you start to do things that you are not comfortable with mistakes can happen. Here I was far from anyone else, but a mistake and crash would result in my looking for my drone in a cornfield. The best shot here was probably a little lower over the road, but that would have taken the drone out of my view, and I would not have had a visual on the road. A taller vehicle could have taken out my drone. Nothing that day was going to be award winning so it was not worth taking the chance.
