About the Image(s)

A trip to the park with my drone proved to be fun and beautiful. When I took the drone with me to the Waukesha Frame Park Gardens, I wasn't sure what I would find. As it turned out, it was quite beautiful.

You will notice that the aperture wasn't set correctly in the beginning of the video. The remote control of the drone has an adjustment to change F-stops while the drone in in flight. I was able to correct the problem while flying. Most of the time, when I am flying the drone, I am concentrating on my flying and don't pay that much attention to the camera settings. This time I noticed the F-stop was wrong and I was able to correct it.

I used my DJI Phantom 3 Pro drone and Movie Studio Platinum to process the video.

Hi Dick, I just watched your video and I think that it is very beautifully done. I like your nice smooth camera work and the background music is well suited. It looks like a wonderful park for all kinds of photography. The way it is laid out provides some stunning patterns from the air which you have done a good job of capturing.   Posted: 03/13/2021 15:05:41

Thank You Lou, I have done a few drone videos at this park. It is a river front park along the Fox river here in Wisconsin. Take a look at this Video from last December:

Hello my dear friend,
Apologies for delay critic. I hope you are keeping safe; since the worsening of the Covid 19 still on the rise.
Anyways, I enjoyed the video you prepared this month. A smoothly operated drone and a carefully edited drone video. The overall planning is nice. The garden itself is diversified with all the design in the garden. I like the way you noticed the visitor entering the garden, and followed the movement from across the garden. later stage how intelligently you picked up the shadow of the drone itself. Finally the clips ended up spotting you behind the scene, which I liked the most. By the way I believed it is a single take by that drone? Amazing video with all that colors and smooth movement of the drone. Can you control the movement of the camera lens, when it changing the point to shoot? its a bit too fast? is there any setting in your drone to control it more smoothly? The music was complementing. overall a nice presentation. Stay safe & cheers.

1. Nice to follow you again to visit the Fox River and see the beautiful garden
2. Your skills of controlling the drone are excellent. Drone itself and camera moving so smooth
3. Music matches the scenery quite well
4. Nice drone shadow tracking effect
5. Pleasant to see the pilot at the ending
6. Some jerky parts appears when turning the drone or camera. If trimmed out and add the transitions between the the jerky footages   Posted: 03/30/2021 17:03:13

Hi, Dear Dick:
apologizes for delayed comments! Recently, work is really too busy. I have watched your video, the production and soundtrack is very smooth, the whole makes people feel comfortable, if the scene can be more abundant, I believe the effect will be better, see the shadow of the drone, this It's fun, I will learn to practice, you have experienced drones, great! I saw the driver of the driver at the end. Is it you? And also see a cover on the handle display, I don't know what it is?

I wish you peace and health! Harry   Posted: 04/19/2021 00:17:17

Hi Harry,

I have had a my drone for several years now and enjoy flying it although I don't find the time to fly it as much as I would like to.

Yes, that is me at the end of the video flying the drone. The white cover that you are seeing is a shade cover to help block the sun from my display while I am flying. Sometimes the sun is too bright and I can't see the display so this shade cover helps.

Dick, Lovely park for aerial video, the design of the park is really pleasing for this. I really like the accompanying music, suits the video well. Parks were you are tracking the visitors and in the end where you are capturing the shadow of the drone and leading to you is very well done.   Posted: 04/20/2021 16:48:21

By the way Dick, really smart to use the cover for the drone controls, I should remember to buy one when I get a drone again. I found it really hard to see my controls when I has the drone briefly :(   Posted: 04/20/2021 16:55:28
