  • Faraway Fantasy "Traveling across China for a month was my biggest personal project of the year. In 2017, sitting at my desk at my day job, I stumbled onto a Chinese tourism website for the province of Guizhou that looked like it was made in 1995, with tiny pixelated thumbnail images of some of the most insane landscapes I had never seen before. Right there and then, I knew I needed to find a way there someday. 
Fast forward to this August and, although it was my biggest travel challenge yet to navigate China, I was finally there and getting to take the photos I’d had in my head for so long. When we arrived at this Bavarian-looking castle (discovered via a deep Pinterest search session), I had only ever seen photos from the front, so I was surprised to discover these insane mountains were behind it too.

We were exploring around the castle when I realized the sun was dipping beneath the peaks, so I literally sprinted to a spot I could launch the drone from before all the light was gone. When I saw these light rays on my screen, I almost cried from relief that all the travel difficulties and money I’d thrown into this trip were paying off. An image several years in the making." #droneofficial

  • Behind the scenes of the latest swarm post! 
The second slide is the raw footage of my flight orbiting the pole. Using a difference matte I extracted the drone from the footage to duplicate and shift in time for the swarm effect. I think around 50 here.
.

You can see the background showing through the motion blur of the blades (the bright beige and blue parts). It’s really weird to see isolated like that. This isn’t a problem though since it’s being layered back on top of the original footage! This makes them look normal again. Thanks to a suggestion I received I decided to shift the colors on every set of 5 drones to give more color variety and ideally make it look less copy and paste.
.

I was out of town this weekend so I didn’t get a chance to work on a new edit. They’re not super hard or time consuming and they’ve been fun to do so I’ve been trying to do a new one every weekend! .

So uhh... stay tuned for more?
