  1. Here's my latest. The Mavic 2 Pro continues to be my workhorse and was responsible for all the exterior shots in the video. For the interiors, I'm still getting used to working with a new camera (A7iii) and shooting/grading in slog2. There weren't any noteworthy views, so I opted to let the windows blow out.
  2. This one was interesting because normally I don't get hired for $200K houses. In this case, the property is located in Albin, Wyoming which is a very small town on the Nebraska border. It's about 45 minutes from Cheyenne so the agent figures that this would be the best way to get prospective buyers to see the beauty of the place without doing a lot of showings for the "just looking" crowd. I think his reasoning is spot on.
  3. LOVE the night shots! Any special techniques with the drone settings and/or editing those?
  4. Here's some unique drone shots from recent jobs. I've come to the point where I actually prefer using the drone instead of a tripod if the shot calls for something higher than 6'.
  5. This was a little challenging with the proximity to other houses and trees, but the Mavic 2 Pro came through again. There's a drone shot at the end where I had the drone on POI mode going clockwise around the house while I was manually climbing, making for a nice corkscrew shot. The M2P kept the camera pointed at the POI (the window above the garage) allowing me to very smoothly speed ramp the clip in post. On the non-drone side, I also whipped out the slider and 35mm lens for the first time to get three closeup shots during the video.
  6. 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.
  7. I just donated it to the local fire department yesterday. Sorry!
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. And another, although admittedly this shot is a bit too high:
  11. 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:
  12. 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?!?!"
