  1. Morning all! It's been a minute so here's a recent project. I'm still super happy with the Mavic 2 Pro's video quality, stability, reliability, and all the -ilities. Nothing too special about this video in terms of how I used the drone.
  2. I just donated it to the local fire department yesterday. Sorry!
  3. Typically it's a three-shot blend. The general procedure goes like this: 1. Ambient light, no flash shot ETTR (exposed to the right) 2. Flash shot ETTR - monolight for large rooms and speed light for everything else 3. Flash shot ETTR with gray card if I haven't shot that color room yet 4. Expose for view outdoors and blow out interior with flash for darken mode blending in PhotoShop If I need to get more flash elsewhere for weird shaped rooms, I have two speed lights that I can position wherever needed. Nathan Cool does a much better job explaining how these shots are done on YouTube. He's a Jedi at this type of photography.
  4. For interior shots, I'm all about the flash-ambient technique. I don't have the skills of Jon to single flash these and get it the way I like.
  5. And another, although admittedly this shot is a bit too high:
  6. I'll join in here Jon. I tend to use my Mavic 2 Pro for exterior stills more than most would imagine. I also do some ground photography, but looking at my last few projects the M2P is getting a lot of exercise. Biggest thing with exterior drone shots is not to include too much roof. I try to keep my altitude parallel with the edge of the roof:
  7. I've gotten the same from some of the homeowners who've been around when I shoot. And the houses look incredible. My typical response is , "Are you serious? Do you do contract work?!?!"
  8. Thanks! This particular client likes more upbeat music for their videos, so they have been pushing me out of my comfort zone lately (which is always a good thing). No big deal though - SoundStripe is paying for itself! I didn't use the Godox 200 for this shoot. The light was mostly a Falconeyes RX-18TD and occasionally an Aupture AL-M9. I'm still searching for a really bright bicolor LED panel since the Godox is only 5600k.
  9. This property was a bit tricky due to the trees, but the Mavic 2 excels in tight quarters. Editing tip: I shoot with the Mavic in h.265 DLOG with sharpness at +1, contrast and saturation at -1. I then use the DJI LUT to pull the colors out in post. This works extremely well about 95% of the time.
  10. Price drop to $1000 if anyone is interested. The GPC case is huge so you'll need to cover shipping.
  11. Great work as always! What made the structures unsuitable for interior shooting?
  12. Nice! I've been trying various tracking plugins to to TV and fire replacements, but am still struggling to find one that works consistently. I suppose I should buckle down like you and just keyframe it.
