Mavic Air change in exposure

So the other day I took my Mavic Air out and tried to get a nice reveal shot of the sunset, the camera was pointed down towards the ground and I would then move the drone forward and carefully tilt the camera upright to reveal the horizon and the sunset.

However when doing this the exposure changed. The grass was light when the camera was pointed down, and when tilting the camera up, the exposure changed so that the grass became darker.

I believe this change occurred when I had already set my manual settings, ISO, shutter speed etc.

Does anyone know how to record a video like this without the change in light and change in exposure when manuvering the drones camera? Basically a fixed exposure so the look of the video is consistent throughout?

Many thanks
