@hiveblocks and @threespeak, I’m still testing the drone out for VLOG capabilities, and today I took it to a park near my house in Minneapolis. Brought @guthrie along with me. Based on the observations I made yesterday in the nature trial, I thought this would be perfect. Right away, however, I noticed the drone veering to the left and right. It occurred to me that because of the obstacle avoidance sensors, the trees and branches to my left and right were actually keeping the drone centered. Open space, it sort of went its own way.
It wasn’t a total loss of a day, even though it did take me 45 minutes to get this four minutes of usable footage. @guthrie was impatient, not wanting to be at the park at all, which was frustrating considering that over the years, when I’ve been swamped with photo editing that locked me to my desk or @caffetto, all he ever wanted to do was go to the park. The people are the problem. I keep coming back to the variable for success is that the space I shoot has to be free of people eager to be out of quarantine. They’re like fucking ants right now. Everywhere!
Sunday, I’m going to shoot a lot. Not sure where, but I might drive to an isolated space or find some railroad tracks. If @lovejoy or @tarotbyfergus are around, I’d love to bring them along. Still really happy with this investment. Just going through the process of learning all about it. If you wanna watch this VLOG, it’s just an update on what I’m learning, and touching on some blockchain happenings like the recent, never-ending Steemit drama, and the Garbage Pail Kid phenomenon on WAX. Thanks for watching. I’ll do another one soon.
