Drone photography of St Anne's Church, Moseley, Birmingham

November 08, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

These images of St Anne's Church in Moseley were taken in autumnal sunlight from my DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone. Each RAW photo was geometrically corrected and cropped in Photoshop, and was enhanced through varying contrast and saturation.

Some areas were also modified in terms of brightness and shadow. Notably on all three images, the lower right hand side was lightened and shadows reduced - this kind of balancing is often necessary on wide angle images where the sun is coming from one side, causing the shadow density to vary from left to right. The stonework of the church steeple is very light, so the highlights of this were also reduced in post processing.

The launch point for this flight was the nearby St Mary's churchyard. This enabled me to start the flight at a legal distance (30m) from people, vehicles and structures. The flight itself was mainly kept at a height of 60-70m above ground level, so that a distance of 50m could be maintained. The viewpoints for the photos are just under 500m from the launch point, which is the legal maximum under standard Permission for Commercial Operations regulations.
