Follow these simple tips to create your own drone halo shot:

1. Use a tripod & position your camera far away so you can capture the whole movement of the drone
2. Put your camera into Manual mode. My settings: ISO 1000, shutter 15 seconds, widest aperture you can (mine was f2.8), also all the way zoomed out
3. For more interesting shots you can use Litchi/Waypoints to plan your flight and create better-looking shapes (or you can just fly manually and try to replicate a shape of your choice)
4. Use the C1/C2 button to easily turn the LED light on the bottom of the drone on/off
5. Take plenty of shots & experiment!

Good luck!

    Awesome, but illegal by FAA rules. You must have anti collison lights when flying at twilight sunrise, sunset and at night.

    Awesome again. Thanks bro 👌

  16. Thiago Rodrigues on January 14, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Great idea Mike! By the way, huge footage improve with your new sony camera, same color grade but better subject sharpness and gorgeous "full frame" depth of field …. looks fantastic now! 🙂

  17. ASK on January 14, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Nice video, In norway it’s not allowed to fly after sunset 🙁 unless you have RO3 license

  18. gcomfx on January 14, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    May be easier to just do Photoshop.
