“Constellation” Drone Shots – Sun + Snow | Santiago Calatrava

Constellation, Santiago Calatrava, River Point Chicago

I recently took (and passed 😉 ) the FAA drone pilot certification exam (Part 107) so this will be a fun addition to upcoming shoots! To get a little practice, I thought I’d go back to Calatrava’s Constellation sculpture at River Point. Fun shooting here this way. Here are a few takes…

This last one, just a bit of fun. I was rotating the camera and accidentally hit the shutter creating a bit of a blur and feeling of motion.

Updating this post with a return visit for some snowy shots on two different days. Lost the light the first day, but there’s still a beautiful quality to the sculpture and park.

A few details with this diffuse light.

I then went back with more light…

I think I would like to see this right after a fresh snowfall but definitely needing the cooperation with some sun immediately after. We’ll see if the weather gods cooperate soon 😉
