Not much writing or posting lately, but trying to start up again. Recently my water time has been getting cut short! I have a new obsession with the dreaded DRONE! The perspective always seems to spark my interest and keep things fresh, especially when it comes to photography. A few years ago everyone got a hold of GoPro's and the fisheye barrel shot became the new thing. Now, we all have go pros and achieving those images isn't as challenging or exciting as it once was. That is where the drone comes in. I have been shooting with the DJI Phantom series since they first came out a few years ago. Now shooting with the Phantom 3 Professional, it has changed the way I view the world below me.
Drone Ninety is a collaborative project I started to inspire other Drone OP's to share there images from this 90 degree perspective. When I say ninety degrees I'm referring to the camera facing down at the earth. I have found my best success flying early in the morning or evening to reduce glare on the water and find the smoothest texture. I am also working with Freewell Gear who produce some pretty amazing filters that snap right onto my Phantom 3. My go to filter is the circular polarizer. Here are some images I've taken over the past few months. If you like what you see, please check out www.instagram.com/droneninety where I feature fellow drone ninety lovers. Aloha!
