How to shoot long exposure photos with the DJI Mavic Pro drone

Published on 17/07/2017

I love shooting long exposure drone photos with my Mavic and Phantoms. You get to see the ocean in new ways with these aerial platforms and long exposure photos really bring out the beauty of the ocean. In this video, I go through how I quickly setup my DJI Mavic Pro to shoot long exposure photos using ND Filters.
