Behind The Lens

This image was shot from a park near my home. I was actually just board while my wife and I were waiting for her mother. So I decided to get my drone out and check things out.
This particular shot was taken later in the evening around six. It was taken just recently, mid summer.
The lighting was actually very good. Since it was a little late in the evening, the sun had started to set, and therefore it wasn't overpowering.
I used my DJI Mavic Air 2. No filters. Nothing else.
I had wanted to get a shot of this train trestle for quite some time actually. And I just happened to have the chance. Kind of just the right place, at the right time.
I don't really do much post processing. On this image, the only thing I did was bring out the real color of the water, clean up a little trash floating, and darken the browns and blacks of the train tracks to help them pop a little more. But, like I stated before. I really don't do a whole lot of post processing. I'm still learning that part of photography.
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 cards.
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.
