Getting more and more accustomed to casual drone photography I’ve started experimenting with some unusual effects. What I did is bought 3 quite cheap filters, removed the filter rings and attached filter glass to the drone lens. This brought me some, unusual images as well as videos. Everything drone sees is tripled or even quadrupled and it looks quite interesting thing.
There are downsides though. First of all, this modification results in severe image quality degradation (less in video). Two filters are made of a thick glass so the drone’s gimbal gets the s overloaded and cannot maintain a horizontal level at all. Only one filter can be used 90% of the time wia without problems. Also, stiching panoramas become a hard work, since the program cannot finstitchingl points to stitch two images together. Moreover, not every scene looks great while using the filter because it may look just unrecognizable and messy. In my opinion, the effect looks better while shooting roundabouts, general roads and some buildings.
Still, I am happy to share some images just ,to prove that there are no limits to your imagination.

I am a drone pilot based in Vilnius, Lithuania — but I'll take any opportunity to travel!
I graduated with a bachelor's degree in photography technology in 2011. Since then I took thousands of images. My latest photographs are featured on DailyMail, and LonelyPlanet and shared by Lithuanian consulates in many countries.
