    I don't think you mentioned what color space you are shooting in. I'm assuming D-log but given that there is great contrast with darker areas and brighter highlights do you find D-log better than HLG in regards to noise in the darker areas? Do you use a noise reducing plugin to help lessen the noise? Also, when exposing for the sunrise/sunset do you favor the sky and let the earth fall where it may or to to use the 2/3 run and open up for the darker areas a 1/3 of a stop? This would be to know. Thank you.

    One thing you forgot to discuss. Color balance settings. What color balance do you like to use during the golden hour? Do you use on of the presets or use a custom setting?

    Am I loosing any photo quality from my Mav Air when I download the photos from the DJI app directly to my IPhone. Or should I pull the photos directly from the SD card in the drone ?

    Thank you very much for your informative videos I'm learning a lot about what my drone can do for me, I'm curious about your PC set up for editing what system and type of PC are you using?

    Great tips, I’m a bit limited on the settings with the camera from my Spark but it’s doable, would be great if you get one day a chance to check out what you think of my instagram gallery and maybe y can improve more my shots 😀 my Instagram is @wilis_crx
