Before we jump into this blog post if you haven’t already read how I do drone light paintings horizontally in the sky be sure to check this out here. If you have done that already (or don’t wanna read something else) get ready to have your socks knocked off because we are flipping them into vertical space and animating our light paintings all with stop motion.
This eerie short film was lit by a 1,600W LED drone light
Drones give us a different perspective for shooting photos and video. But, they are also useful for adding light from totally new angles and for lighting inaccessible areas. In his latest short film The Place Where, filmmaker Tim Sessler mounted a 1,600W LED light onto a drone and created a moody masterpiece.
British insurance company turns drones into flying street lamps
British insurance company Direct Line is getting into the drone business. More specifically, they’re getting into the “mounting lights on drones” business. Ok, so this isn’t entirely photography related but it does hold some cool potential for photographers. Direct Line have teamed up with a bunch of drone experts to come up with what they’re calling Fleetlights.
The idea is to help aid people in dark situations. Walking home late at night through areas where there are not streetlights. To aid with police response and accident investigation in the middle of the night, and other such activities. Need some illumination? All you need do is whip out your phone, load up an app and request some light. The nearest available drones will head on over to meet you and light the way.
