I met Kyle Sharp to scout the location and hear his vision for the images. Let me tell you, Kyle is one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met. Always so polite and accommodating, I forget that I’m talking to the CEO of a huge company when I’m around him.
When shooting these type of projects, timing is everything. Since it was in the middle of a busy intersection, I would have to photograph on the weekend to avoid as much traffic as possible. Also, there were two opposite sides that could pose for the hero shot. Therefore, I needed to shoot at sunrise AND at sunset. So I planned accordingly.
In addition to ground shots, I set my new DJI Mini 3 Pro on its maiden voyage. That drone is so fun to use and easy to carry around and launch. Only caveat is, there are no side sensors. So I nearly crashed it into a telephone pole. Lady Luck was on my side that morning.
