Got a good deal on a Mavic Air here on the forum and package arrived today. Amazing how easy it is to use! Will be hanging around here to learn from you guys......
Few pics taken on my first flight, unfortunately just around the house..... :peepwall:














Well done. Great shots there. Drone flying is really easy. Its not really flying its more like having a really long tripod. LoL

Enige advies oor ligter of donker sal waardeer word. Sodra ek hom ligter maak dan verloor ek die mooiheid van die son.
Shoot RAW mode. Edit in Adobe lightroom. Then you can decide how much light there is where.

Took the drone up for a sunset pic. Found it very difficult and quite frustrating. Took 20 odd pics, with only on or two worthwhile





To make sun shots work you have to run it through an editor unfortunately.

It’s a learning curve. Especially if you’re used to a DSLR, tiny drone sensor has much more difficulty with dynamic range needed for sunsets. Make sure you’re shooting raw! I find DJI really over-processes the jpegs and can loose a lot of details.
Agreed 100%. I dont want to be the one selling Adobe products here but friends don't let friends shoot jpeg lol

Korrek en daar sien jy nou een van die limitations van die Spark.

I just love the 'bird's eye'/'top down' photos.  I mean, isn't that the purpose of aerial photography?  ;D

Canola silo's at 'Spiegelsrivier', outside Heidelberg WC.

Taken with DJI Spark.

Great birds eye views - great time of day to be shooting, shadows very effective in the composition

Thanks.  Yes, shadows makes these kind of photo's.  This was late morning.  I want to do another shot late afternoon so that I can shoot towards the mountains in the background.  Should look nice on a clear day and with the orange glow of the sunset.  The 2nd to last photo was very under-exposed due to me shooting in the direction of the sunlight - had to do some bit of editing...

Very Nice NS - nice to see such unpolluted beaches and pools in nature. Here in the Western Cape, places like that are polluted.

Thanks for posting  :thumleft:

George/Montagu pass and natures valley are very close to the border...

Making the title ‘Eastern Cape and Eastern part of Western Cape’ took up too much space.

Blouberg for one - there are many more. Then the rock pools in the Wellington area are full of pollution - last summer I removed 10 big plastic bags of rubbish from the rock pools - and I hadn't even made a dent.
