So, my friend Mindy said that the aerial "selfies" that we take are so awesome. Granted, I have always enjoyed taking a picture of myself from the air, but most of them I just keep in my collection and don't share them. Who, besides me, wants to see me from the air anyway?!
But that got me thinking - there is actually something very fun and interesting in doing these aerial selfies. Especially when you can bring out a certain look in the picture.
So I decided to take a selfie of me flying over the old train tracks outside the Davenport Cement Factory. This facility closed its operation in 2010 and kind of looks like a ghost town.
I flew my DJI Vision and had my settings on the camera changed to RAW (taking images in the RAW format) and adjusted the exposure to more dark, as I was taking an image against the Sun. Since the image is being taken in RAW, I can recover some of the details later on. So I wasn't too worried about it.
Let me tell you upfront - I am not a professional with this. But that's exactly the point. If I can learn and get better with using these various techniques, then others can too.
Since it's against the bright Sun, not much detail can be seen.
It is amazing the power some apps have.
I really enjoyed this final feel of the image.
