I’ve been using an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to gain some unique perspectives on shooting appropriate scenes. Watching the UAV fly inspired me to make its portrait. The process became quite challenging. One problem was to show the motion of the props spinning, as the short duration of my flashes would freeze the motion. I solved this by using the multiply exposure function to take 5 photographs and blend them into one. I also wanted to display a nice reflection of the flashing colored lights. This required timing the shutter release to match each of the 5 exposures. Balancing the background light, the main light, and the reflected light from the UAV took some time, but came together as I had envisioned.
