So I got in my head that I really need to go and shoot several of the really well known locations of natural wonders that we have here in Utah at least before I get told that I can't. So I headed down to Southern Utah, and tried to go to both Dead Horse Point and Arches. I had exactly 4 hours of shooting time and the following is the best of what I came away with. Enjoy.
So here are the things that I learned:
1. Don't try and shoot this much in so little time. People don't like when you tail gate them because you are racing to spot to get a good shot.
2. Moab is a cool little town. People have told me this, but I was skeptical. Lesson learned.
3. Always bring tools. My GoPro locked up on me and I didn't have an allen wrench to take it off the DJI Phantom to reset it.
4. Don't be so scared of flying. I told myself that I was willing to risk the $1,500 to get the good shots, but I held back because of my fear of the wind taking the copter.
5. Always have a good model with you for those people related shots. Or at least carry a model release so you can have strangers fill in for you.
