I recently got a drone to spice up my videos and I’ve been practising flying it for a few weeks now. There’s still a lot that I have to learn, but I thought this footage from Ladybower reservoir at the weekend was too gorgeous not to share.
My sister, niece, nephew and I made best use of the early spring weather and ventured into the Peak District for a stroll. The Upper Derwent Valley is a beautiful spot to explore, even if the sun wasn’t out on the day we went.
Over time I hope to get more confident with the drone to fly it closer to things, and get more stable sweeping shots, but it’s all a very fun learning curve so far!
For anyone interested, the drone is a DJI Mavic Pro, and this film is shot at 2.7K resolution and 24 frames per second.
