About the Image(s)

On my business trip to Honolulu, got time to get the drone out and shoot some video. Found this fun pier where these kids were jumping in the waves. I kept the drone higher in the sky so that they weren't bothered by it. The Spark is so small, no one notices it up there. I didn't want to stay very long because of the rules of flying over people.

I took a still from the video, but I preferred the jpg that I took afterwards.

DJI Spark, April 2021
original dimensions: 3968x2976 cropped dimensions: 3863x2897
1/25 sec at f/2.6, ISO 200, 120 feet high

I enjoy the colors, the perspective (your signature) and the fact that having the pier slice through the middle successfully breaks the rules. Nice.   Posted: 07/06/2021 18:26:12

Thanks Bob! I do like that straight down look. Breaking the rules is always good 😉   Posted: 07/08/2021 10:51:52

I really your use a frame grab o capture your submitted image. I think converting it to a square aspect ratio improves the shot. What caused you to pick that particular frame? After all you have 30 of them to choose every second. :-)

What I really liked was the video clip. Thanks for sharing that.   Posted: 07/08/2021 10:46:55

Thanks for watching the video. I don't usually do a lot of videos, but the kids jumping in the surf was cool.
I actually didn't use a frame grab, I used a jpg still that I took after the video was over. I guess I wasn't clear enough about that in my comment.
I think that the jpg was better quality than the screen grab for editing.   Posted: 07/08/2021 10:54:01

Don, don't forget we all have the ability to post a video. Doesn't have to be long…   Posted: 07/23/2021 18:36:09

Lisa, this is a fantastic photo! I enjoyed the video as well. I agree with Bob that you have great color and perspective. I also like that the pier is centered. I find it provides a beautiful view of the beach; this would all be lost if you used the rule of thirds.

Well done!

Thanks for stopping by LuAnn! This was a fun day shooting. Drone video is hard!   Posted: 07/31/2021 20:13:45
