Mavic Air | f2.8 | 1/8000 | ISO 200

OWN PRESET

What’s this – another drone shot? Yes, I love that straight after Eric’s incredible shot in Australia’s Pink Hills last week, we have a drone shot from our very own Scotland. This time the shot is from Nikki Leadbetter who has won Image of The Week before with a drone shot.

Nikki actually did some training with Eric when he was at Farm and I’m going to guess that this helped her gain a lot more confidence in her own work. She has been creating some beautiful work and it’s so lovely to see her grow,

This shot has a huge amount of impact. It’s one of those images that looks quite simple but was probably quite complicated to implement and as Nikki explains, it required some post production to hone it. I think it was more than woth it, it’s an outstanding shot.

Read Nikki’s take on this shot below …

What Nikki says ...

I used a Mavic Air for the shot. The original image was of the couple lying on a T shaped pier. I knew I wanted to get that shot of them lying on the pier but I hadn’t thought of this composition at the time. I play around with images a lot in photoshop and this was the result of that. I just started messing around with the image and came up with this.
