I was watching this video about how to create "droneception" type images. I love the images and was thinking I'd like to try and make one (just got to find a good place to do it)..


The idea is to create a path that slowly rises while looking to a point in a straight line in the distance. Then fly diagonally upward while taking 5-9 pictures -- all focused the same POI until you're past the POI looking straight down. Some even recommend flying slightly past that point and looking back.

It results in awesome images like the ones posted on this page: https://www.pinterest.com/ziembou/droneception

While there is a 1 star paid app on the App store to take these images (https://apps.apple.com/us/app/droneception/id1273583363), I thought this would be a great way to both showcase the power of Dronelink as well as try and get some Beta Users to work with me to optimize the component.

Here is a dronelink link to the component I created: https://app.dronelink.com/…/kSoPwj2s9J…/LyJIKvPyAbkHrXvTzcq2

It's a simple path with markers that change the altitude and take a picture along the way.

It's in the Dronelink Flight Paths Repo. I'd love to see people tear it apart and see whether they think it's a good / path. You can fork the component into your own repo and play with it. You can even post your changes / versions as well as send me back any changes you'd make and I can update mine.

If you're looking to learn how to "stitch" the images together, I found this good video:

Dang that’s a lot of work in Photoshop. Somebody needs to tell that guy to reorder the images so that the first photo is in the middle and then photomerge with the perspective merge method
