Behind The Lens

I took this shot while flying my drone over the river, very close to my home.
This particular shot was taken late into the evening at around 1830. I was actually starting to run out of daylight, and i had been chasing boats with my drone all day. I felt lucky I got this last photo.
The lighting was just about perfect. It takes a lot of sunlight to get shots of moving objects like boats with my drone. I had to have a super fast shutter speed.
I used my dji mavic air 2. No filters or anything else.
I had just watched a YouTube video about using photoshop and a photo similar to this was used as the example. And it made me really want to get a similar shot.
I actually did do a little post-processing for this shot. I brightened up the white in the wake behind the boat and darkened the blue in the water, to bring out the natural look of the water.
In my camera bag
I don't really carry a bag per say any more. Last spring when I finally upgraded to a Canon Full Frame Mirrorless camera, I sold my Canon 7d and all my lenses. So now, I only have my Canon EOS RP, a Canon RF 24-105 f/4L IS USM. Along with a few filters, extra batteries and Manfrotto tripod. Other than that, I usually have my DJI Mavic Air 2, with extra batteries, filters and SD
My answer to this question pretty much always stays the same. Get out and shoot tons and tons of photos of your preferred genre, and even more of the things you don't really like to shoot, it will only make you a better and more rounded photographer. My biggest tip if you want to get into drone photography is to make sure you follow the laws of your particular country and get the proper licensing. It's just my opinion but drones these days aren't just "toys" any more, they are capable of extreme distances and altitude and can be dangerous.
