Aerial Drone Fireworks - Newport Beach, CA

Newport Dunes Aerial Fireworks - 4th of July Fireworks Newport Beach, CA



If you had told me even 6 months ago that I would be able to take 4-second exposures from a flying camera at 300 feet I wouldn't have believed you. To make this image, I shot multiple exposures in RAW/DNG using my DJI Phantom 3 Quadcopter and merged them as an HDR image.



For those who are wondering, I didn’t fly over any people and stayed far away from the fireworks. Also, I covered up the flashing lights on my Phantom 3 so it wouldn’t disrupt the show.
