High in the air over Eastland

In 2014 we were contacted by a client who had a very specific photographic requirement for the Eastland shopping centre at Ringwood. What they needed was a dusk image with lights visible on the ground, shot from a very specific altitude over a specific point with the city in the background. The shots also had to be sharp as someone else had tried to do it twice before.

Drones were in their very early days back then so we hired a helicopter from Microflite and armed with the Nikon and a gyro stabiliser I set out with the art director. I had set up tethered shooting so he could see them on his laptop as they were taken.

And this is the result, a happy client and a memorable image.

And onboard on the way back to Moorabbin.
