Vertical Hong Kong - Victoria Peak

The essential features of Forest + Skyscrapers + Harbour describe this city so well. To get a slightly different perspective on the classic Victoria Peak view of Hong Kong, I flew my drone out closer to the edge of the skyscrapers to capture more of the vertical perspective: Victoria Peak Drone Aerial Cityscape from Hong Kong with +Michael Matti

Shoot Moonrise Tomorrow Night Here

Tomorrow night at 7:25pm the full moon will rise behind the Pasadena City Hall when looking from this direction. I hope to be there shooting. Anyone want to join me?

Old Town Pasadena, CA is a really nice downtown area, and the City Hall is perhaps the highlight, especially for photography. There are also plenty of cool stairways and hallways for more photo opportunities.

Newport Dunes Aerial Fireworks Photo - Newport Beach, CA

If you had told me even 6 months ago that I would be able to take 4-second exposures from a flying camera at 300 feet I wouldn't have believed you. To make this image, I shot multiple exposures in RAW/DNG using my +DJI Innovations Phantom 3 Quadcopter and merged them as an HDR image.

For those who are wondering, I didn’t fly over any people and stayed far away from the fireworks. Also, I covered up the flashing lights on my +DJI Productions  Phantom 3 so it wouldn’t disrupt the show.

Foggy Sunrise in The Shire - New Zealand

A foggy New Zealand sunrise in The Shire. This wasn't at the Lord of the Rings Hobbiton movie set, but on the same island with similar green and golden farmland scenes.

Tent under the Milky Way

I guess you could call this a selfie. Giant rock piles, my tent, and the milky way. This was a perfect place to pitch a tent, except for the wind. I spent a couple hours shooting this photo, clambering up and down the rocks with the tent acting like a sail pushing me up the rocks and flying away at times, trying to get the position and lighting right. It was lots of fun, and a great way to spend the night in the middle of the desert.
