Rydal Water shot on a DJI Mavic 2 Pro

The lone tree at Rydal Water in the Lake District on a misty autumn morning

A flyover of the largest island on Rydal Water in the Lake District shot on a DJI Mavic 2 Pro on a misty autumn morning. The video, which is a single 30 second shot is longer than most footage of its type but it works because the result almost looks like a moving still image where more interest is revealed the longer you watch it. Scroll down to view the video.

The video was shot using a NiSi 3 stop ND filter to control shutter speed. The Mavic 2 Pro was also set to shoot in D-Log to allow me to be able to get the most out of the footage in post-production and was colour graded in DaVinci Resolve

I used to edit videos in Final Cut Pro, but since this isn’t available for Windows PCs, which I use exclusively now, DaVinci Resolve was an enticing option to try. It’s free to use the basic version which allows you to edit 4K video, and I’m happy to say it’s amazing professional video editing software that’s incredibly sophisticated and intuitive to use.

    • Thanks mate, it was my first time using Davinci Resolve so pretty pleased with the result. So much more to learn but looking forward to sitting down and going through some more tutorials.
