An aerial wander through the land of the midnight sun-- Alaska, over the summer solstice. Where magic hour is never just an hour...
All shots with the Phantom 2 and the GoPro Hero 3+ around Wrangell, AK and Anchorage, AK.
For those wondering about GoPro settings: 2.7k Cinema Mode, 24fps, Protune, CamRaw. ND Filter!
Workflow: Edited in Premiere Pro, a little work in After Effects. More or less in this order: lens distortion reduction, warp stabilizer, color correction, highlight diffusion, noise reduction, motion blur, sharpening, grain addition.
