Just because you have a drone doesn’t mean you have to shoot from super way up high! Shoot from the hip you fools. All sharp-shooter, rooting-tooting cowboy, video junkies do!!!!
When I started getting intrigued with drone photography and the videos drones captured, I looked first at the Anafi (a drone by a French company called Parrot.)
The Anafi Drone… sure, sure it has all the usual bells and whistles. (Insert my boring monotone voice here). Giving you a ton of sleep inducing specs; I’ll wake you when this painful part is over, and we get back to the fun stuff.
It’s got 4K video, yada yada…. 21 megapixel DNG capabilities, blah blah blah. Pssst, it’s safe to come out now, the nerdology has left.
If you know me and are reading this after watching my YouTube video, you are either a Portrait Photographer, someone I’ve shot in studio, or someone who knows me and my love for nerdy photo, techie stuff. So, endure, you might learn something new, useful or something that the next time you see me you can talk about and I’ll pay attention to our convo for 3.5 seconds, before my mind drifts off to…where can I get a cold brewed grande with salted Carmel infused whip? Or is that an Apple Watch you have on?
So, now that we are back. I’ve prob told you over a chipotle burrito the following:
(Insert my monotone voice)
The Anafi had me at 21 mega- whatever and 4K whatcha-ma-call-it video.
But, pssstttt , before you tap outta the tech headlock I have you in….here’s a little something I’ll let you in on about the Anafi…
Ok, insider info here, listen up Girl Scouts. If you wanna get your diddy badge in Drone Video… so you can:
Obtain a Merit for your sash.
Create really cool, cinematic footage.
Be one of the Uber cool kids riding one-wheeled skateboards, chewing watermelon flavored sour patch kids. (Which I love by the way)
Then; you must know that the thing that makes the Anafi Drone a Videógrafo dream come true isnt all my boring monotone voices info. No, kids of Toyland, my pretties, my techie- junkies, goo-goo doll loving idiots. The thing that makes it so Ice cream cool is, that it has no sensors blocking ground-up shooting.
Oh ! HELL YES BROTHER!!
and….. the piece de resistance is, it also has a camera gimble that swings 180 degrees up or down. So yes sports Fans! You can shoot from down low looking up! Or way up high and look strait down with no prop blades in the shot.
Case in point. Do not rinse and keep repeating the same thing; do something, anything Different. Be who you are. Be A Creative.
I can listen to you for longer then 3.5 seconds if you include the following words in your lingo: Camera, tacos, editing, Subaru, dog, espresso and a few others 😎 Cheers till next time.
Keep it real!
