July 1st 2023. Fireworks displayed from a distance of approx. 1.6 miles. I used davinci resolve to zoom in 3.5x and used some LUTS to color grade.
Take a look at these two video Frames below: Notice how when I record I get a really nice black as that is what th sky looks like.
So what happened to you, was when you first started your flight you wanted to see the houses so your camera exposed for it, but this makes for a very low grade recording when you looking up at a Dark sky.
Next time you go up in the Night , let your drone fly in the Pitch black , dont try to help it along .
So this is your Frame side by side to mine :
Hopefully you will see the Difference in the black of the video tha I am shooting compared to yours.
Once you learn to get the Pitch Black , than everything will Pop and clean up much nicer even zoomed .
