Ive been doing monthly projects and this last months theme was "Shadow" I thought the shadows you see from ariel view would be a pretty cool idea to explore. I dont feel its done and more of an idea at this point but id love to explore the theme more and add in some well shot motion timelapse with DSLR and use my osmo as well. ANyways I thought Id share it with yall.

Hi illking,

Man...it's very awesome!
You captured some great moments and on that grey scale you transform it in a superb piece of art.
Congratulations.

Thanks guys. This was the first time I shot in manual setting using polar pro filters as well. After increasing the contrast i got a lot of noise in a few shots but im still learning the limits of this camera.

Excellent video. Thanks for sharing. In fact I was viewing it again and again. According to Carl Jung shadow is an unconscious aspect of the personality which the conscious ego does not identify in itself.

Completely off topic but what is the music used in the video?  Shazam is not being my friend on this...

really nice done! what i like most (beyond what others aready said in this thread): the last scene. this looks absolutely awesome! how did you do it? it remind me of shots using zoom lenses and sliders, but we all know, this isnt possible with your drone. did you composite two shots here? or did you play with lens correction fx? however: im impressed!

the effect is actually really easy to achive,  a video tutorial was posted. Essentially all you do fixate on a target and either fly your drone twords or away from it, then in post you adjust scale to keep the targeted object roughly the same scale.

Excellent video; the bikes and the time-lapse were great.  WIthout a zoom, how did you achieve the last 10 seconds of the film, zooming into the cross whilst panning out the horizon?  Was that clever crop and zoom in post production?

Cheers,
Ian

hey! thanks a lot for your answer, and linking the video. really nice effect... and as i assumed, it is the "dolly zoom effect", but i never would have thougt of achieving it this simple with drone footage...

well, i think i might use that often in my future productions. great!
