should you work for your work?
I think this is going to be a very person question and I think a lot depends on who you work for. But when there is the opportunity why not offer you skills as a photographer, you may not get paid outside of your regular pay but you are still getting paid to be a photographer (at least for your time), and this gives you the opportunity to work on your skills. This is also a great way to to increase your value as an employee offering skill above what you do on the day to day. I think that every time I get to take professional photos is an opportunity to get more work somewhere else, the people at the shoot will see you taking the photos and then you can post the photos in say a blog and then other people will get to see your work as well.
here are some photos I took at a drone training we had last week.
One note about taking photos of drones is that the blades don't spin as fast as you think so you might need a slower shutter speed then you think 1/250 seems to be good and 1/2000 is to fast at a/2000 you don't get enough motion in the blades. So somewhere between 1/250 to 1/1000 should be a good range.
Stay tuned for next week’s blog coming out on Wednesday, and don't for get to share with your friends and family, links are at the bottom.
