This is a special guest post done in collaboration with Kara Murphy, known as @karaemurphy online.

tips for printing your drone photos for the best quality

 

The Holiday season is upon us. If you’ve learned how to create extraordinary drone photos, and consistently receive encouraging feedback, a print of your work is a stellar idea for a unique gift.

More people are taking to online platforms and setting up their own print shops to capitalize on peak consumer demand. If you’re interested in transforming a digital image into a tangible product, read on.

I picked up a drone for the very first time in June 2014 and was instantly hooked. The ability to capture a unique aerial perspective opened up a whole new realm of creative expression that continues to energize me to no end.

While I was moderately successful as a photographer and landed a few high-profile gigs working for major music festivals, no one had ever asked to buy an actual print of my work. As a result, I became accustomed to preparing photos for online outlets.

‘ANOMALY’ – A Short Film About Zero Gravity In The Land Of Ice & Fire

ANOMALY is a short film combining incredible footage from Iceland with stunning visual effects.

ANOMALY is a short film dreamed up by Jacco Kliesch who traveled to the ‘Land of Ice and Fire’ in October 2017. With a concept in mind of what he wanted to create Jacco teamed up with Wildboar 3D Studio and the film below is the result.

 

Personal note: I was blown away when I first started seeing clips of ANOMALY on Instagram last week. I quickly learned more about the guys behind the film, Jacco Kliesch and Wildboar, and I asked them if they would be open to giving the From Where I Drone community a behind-the-scenes look at how it was created. Thankfully they said yes so be sure to scroll down to get a behind the scenes look and learn more about how this epic film was made.

INTERVIEW / BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK AT HOW IT WAS MADE…

 

How did this project come about and how long did it take to make?

Jacco Kliesch: Last year I decided to go on a trip to Iceland. I already knew I wanted to make a travel video.

So I did some research – and noticed that there were already so many cool films and drone videos about Iceland.

I wanted to create something unique though so that was the start of how I came up with the concept for ΔNOMΔLY.

Jacco’s concept presentation where he explained the basic idea, did some research about locations and showed some rough drafts of the visuals using Adobe Photoshop.
