Pic(k) of the week 10: DESERT AERIAL - DJI MAVIC 2 PRO

Earlier in the year, I picked up my first drone, a DJI Mavic 2 Pro. Being an avoid Aerial photographer, I've been shooting from aircraft, helicopters and balloons, but as the cameras on the smaller prosumer drones have become decent it is time to include "modern" technology in my Aerial photography. Some shots are hard if not impossible get from an aircraft while others can pretty much only be done with a drone; there is a place for both platforms!

In the image below, I was attracted to the scene of people getting out of their car and enjoying the beauty of a sunset over the desert. I love how the tire tracks lead the viewer into the center of image and how the distinct pattern of the footprints in the warm desert sand, add to the image.

Image details:

  • DJI Mavic 2 Pro with Hasselblad 10.26mm lens 
  • 1/320s, f4.0, ISO 100
  • Lightroom CC for RAW development 
  • DxO Nik ColorEfex Pro4 for optimal contrast
I'm pretty happy with the image quality of the 1 inch sensor mounted on The Mavic 2 Pro. Would I love to have an even larger sensor? Of course, but being a small compact drone everything is of course about compromises!
