This aerial shoot with Debora Dahl turned out to be exceptionally beautiful & way more creative than I ever thought possible. Not only did her outfits really seem to fit with the scenery, but using the drone gave me capabilities that I’d never thought of – like being above the water where I was unable to stand.
Just outside of the Coeur d’Alene Resort, & having just met her after finding her on Instagram, Debora trusted me to not run into her with the drone, & take a variety of images & video all while the wind was going crazy out there. It was a lot of fun, but it was also a little daunting. We played with shadows & light, & the wind ended up being the best part if you ask me, because her hair & her dresses were constantly flowing.
Coeur d’Alene is the perfect scenery for any drone photographer, but adding a person into the mix added a whole new aspect & dimension. When considering social media aspects, the ability to have a shot closeup & zoom out over the water is something unexpected for the viewer. I fully intend on doing more shots with the drone that involve people.
Thank you for a fun day downtown Debora! I’d love to do another shoot sometime soon!
