    I also have a family and demanding job, I’ll admit photography is just a hobby for me but I usually enjoy it so much that it create a yearning to do it all over again, maybe if you set up a plan to go out into the streets to shoot it would give you interest? Mapping out your start point to your finish and everything you hope to capture can of plan.

    Fantastic shot, shame about lowering the quality but still obvious to see it’s a great shot.

    How’s the battery life on the air? Half an hour?

    Is in flight or for standby as well?

    I’ve been thinking about getting a drone for when I do my yearly visit to Phuket with family.

    Flight. Not sure what you mean by standby.

    Not good, 15 minutes of flight time, sometimes you have to calibrate it and it takes a minute, I also always record in 4k so it goes by pretty quick. I have 3 batteries though.

    Yeah 15 minutes does seem like a short window but the shots drones can get, wow

    It's by far the most fun I've ever had recording since the GoPro came out.
    This shot takes work:

    Looks better on a computer screen

    The Litchi app is well worth the price. You can program in auto-missions from your computer and upload them to the drone.

    15 minutes is actually a long time when flying a drone. It typically gets boring after around 15 minutes.

    Most of the wildlife was shot on a canon L series 70-200mm 2.8, the monkey was probably on the 24-70.

    The last one is from a series of UV body paint photos I did a few years back. Fun project, but it is a pain in the ass to shoot using almost exclusively black lights. At least it was with the lights I had. I'm sure there is probably expensive UV lighting set ups you can get, but I wasn't making enough off those shoots to justify anything fancy.

    I think the ISO was 100, but it's been a while since I took that picture and I don't have the original files anymore.

    This is a fun one. From my first ever digital camera that I got in 2002 I think. It was like a 1.3 MP Hewlett Packard (of all things):

    It's different, but I think it's too dark. I can't tell what that is.

    Maybe bump the exposure a stop or two?
