Thanks for the encouragement about how high can you go. I’ve been taking things slow in this respect as many people have lost their drones hap haphazardly flying into the clouds. I have now taken my drone to its modified limits with the screws in the back of the RC controller (transmitter) – My next step will be to modify with software settings, however before I get carried away with that – I need to get my eye in with regard to composition at 500m first. A friend of mine thinks that the footage is useless at such a hight, however I disagree. You have to remember that the drone is a camera and every time you send it up, you have to think about where you are standing, the filed of view at whatever distance and hight.
I think the major difference between my friend and I, is that I think of the drone more as a camera, as opposed to just a toy. OR – although it can be used to take shoot and go pics – when it comes to Ariel photography – many of the same photography skills used for composition – still apply no matter how high one goes.
I am really stoked with the 500m mark now for taking like wise aerial shots that I came up with today. 500m will be my cap for now as I work my way back down – changing the angle and distance depending on the subject I go out to shoot.
I now go back to practicing video editing – that one I really have to take my time learning.
It can be hard to find the right shot using just a little phone screen. Phone screens lack the display brightness compared to your average compact camera or better yet – DSLR display screen. I’m learning though to get my eye in.
On other fronts – the psychiatrist I saw at the community mental health clinic has adjusted my meds – taking meds at night now. 150mg of slow release seroquel (XR) @ 6pm – then 50mg or Fast release @ 9pm. (Bedtime – or therafter ZZZZZZzzzzzzzz)
No more issues with having to take shit in the mornings! I was not really complying with that. Also got the name of a New Psychiatrist that bulk bills and thus refereed by todays shrink – Have to go to my GP and sort that out – that is septate to the 12 month mental health plan to which I see a therapists on average at six weekly intervals.
That’s the plan for now – My eldest boy is going to see if he can get assistance with a caravan for out in the back yard. It’s an alternative – will have to just see what happens there. That’s a wraps for today. 😉
