Snow Flight at Kenneglenn Scenic and Nature Preserve

March 7, 2017

Recently had the amazing opportunity to shoot at Kenneglenn Scenic and Nature Preserve in East Aurora, New York. Flew with the Phantom 3 Professional in Cinema 4K. The pristine landscape scenery and some really unique weather conditions were integral to the success of this shoot.

 For this shoot I used the Phantom 3 Professional with D-Log Picture style and Sharpness: -3 Contrast:-3 Saturation: -2. In shot in 24 frames per second with a 1/200 shutter speed. Wish I could have kept it slower, some of the snow came out a little 'streaky;' but ultimately it was just too bright when I was shooting. Here are stills from the original:

 Graded using the Lumetri panel in Adobe Premiere Pro. Used the SL Blue Cold LUT that comes pre-installed to give the footage a cooler tone.




 Phantom 3 Professional handled amazing in the snow. Calm conditions - gusts less than 10 mph - created a very beautiful situation where the snow fell gracefully and added interesting depth to the shots.
