Detonate Festival Photography

Was invited to take photos at the Nottingham based Detonate Festival. It was their first festival, and they absolutly smashed it. It was held at the Nottingham Race Course, which at first I was skeptical about how good of a venue it would be. Turned out to be a great idea. Loads of amazing artist (including Andy C, above) and the sun was shining.

2013/14 Helicam Reel

2013/14 Helicam Reel from Rob Antill on Vimeo.

Here’s a selection of shots captured over the past year using the DJI Phantom, Zenmuse H3-2D Gimbal and GoPro 3.

It’s been a very good year for me, I’ve been fortunate to have travelled to some pretty amazing places. The heli has been crammed in my rucksack where ever I’ve gone. For something so small, it still blows my mind the kind of shots you can capture with it…

I have ordered the new 3 axis gimbal, so once that’s fitted, the shots should be even smoother. For comparison, check out this first video shot with no electronic gimbal.. https://vimeo.com/63947449

Aerial PanoDrop | Tahoe, USA

TahoePanoDropFinally got round to trying out a PanoDrop from the sky. I put a GoPro in 0.5 of a sec timelapse mode, and sent the DJI Phantom up. I had it in GPS mode so once I’d found a position I thought would look good I rotated the heli around slowly to capture a selection of images to make up the 360° panorama. From there I stitched the stereographic image as normal. Hopefully I’ll get round to making a few of these :)

Minute Fourteen – Chipped

Minute Fourteen – Chipped from Rob Antill on Vimeo.

Here’s a quick process video showing how I put together this image. A friend work’s at a electronics factory here in Nelson, BC, Canada. They had collected a bag of parts that the machines miss-place. Usually these will just get chucked out or recycled. I tipped them out on the table and was fascinated by all the tiny bits (some the size of a grane of sand). It was new to see these separate components before they are soldered to a board.
