3 Weeks Drone Look Back - Lessons Learned

Well, it's been 3-4 weeks since I have been focusing on drone still photography and found that to become proficient - it requires time. Here are the things I am learning and areas that need to become second nature:

- confirm drone batteries, remote and iPhone are fully charged
- plan in advance location, subjects and weather condition impacts
- remove camera lens protector
- always keep mini-SD card in zippered pouch (consider a spare always stored)
- use preflight checklist and add camera setings confirmation
- immediately after downloading drone mini-SD card to Mac - place SD-card in the case
- select a drone 'home' location that is obstacle-free
- explore all camera features - panorama, wide angle, smart photo
- future: low light settings, video, using ND filters
