Capturing the Northern Lights in real time only recently became doable, with beautiful videos like this one popping up to show the potential of cameras that can handle high-ISO with low noise. But the folks at OZZO Photography took this idea to new heights… literally. They strapped a Sony a7S II to a drone and shot the northern lights from the air.
If nothing else, it’s a different perspective we’ve not seen before; but it was also a very difficult piece of footage to capture.
“When you’re shooting Northern Lights with a drone, you are racing time,” photographer Oli Haukur tells PetaPixel. “They appear and fade out quickly, so preparing the drone and getting all the settings correct in record time is crucial!”[via]
