Exploring Cebu from the Air

EXPLORING CEBU FROM THE AIR

A couple of months ago I added a Phantom 3 quadcopter to my collection of tools as a photographer. It has been wonderful learning to fly this and being able to use it as another creative tool. I have been exploring both photos and video with the quadcopter, but I must say that learning video with it has been awesome. My family was recently in town and with visitors comes some travel. We stayed around Cebu during their vacation and I got in as much flying time as I could. I try to approach video in the same way I take photos, focusing on strong natural light to create mood and emotion. I’ve compiled a 4 minute video below with some of these clips. I also went ahead and posted some photos that I’ve taken with the Phantom 3 as well.

On another note, if you follow my work here, you will notice that I have created a new blog page on this site. I decided to split my photo stories and blog posts into different pages. I am planning to post more regularly here on the blog (once or twice a month) with happenings, behind-the-scenes, some tutorials and other stuff related to the work I do. If you want to be notified when new posts arrive here you can signup automatically here. Happy viewing!
