A very late post for me but since I am so late it will take care of Saturday as well. The video of the golf course is what took so much time. That and building a composite still photo of the entire golf course.
Above is a candid shot of Trevis Mayfield, owner of the Maquoketa Sentential Newspaper. He was photographing the Chamber Golf Event and I caught him trying to take a picture of me taking a picture of the speaker. 🙂
There is a 5.30 minute video at the end of this post, which (spoiler alert) shows the infamous mooning of the drone. 🙂
There are many times when I would much rather just photograph a golf course then play golf on it. Golf courses are serene places of natural beauty and it seems a shame to spoil them with golf. 🙂
This is a composite image of the Maquoketa Country Club above, which took over two hours to build. It actually only took about an hour to build the first one. I inadvertently deleted it and had to start from scratch. It is made up of 5 different video grabs from the drone. If you don’t look at it with a magnifying glass it is a pretty decent composite.
Yes it has some flaws in it. The images were taken from different angles and it’s hard to get everything all lined up. I think two hours was enough time to spend on it. If I were doing it for a paying client I would have spent a lot more time on it making it perfect.
If you have a few minutes (5 minutes & 30 seconds to be exact) you might enjoy the video and the mooning.
That’s it for today. Sorry to be so late with this. I hope you had a great Friday and will have a better Saturday.
Thanks for stopping by the blog and be careful.
