Video footage by Jake Bayless, Edited by Michelle Olivera. To provide a different view of this year's Sonoma County Fair, the Press Democrat worked with Jake...
This was a fun little project. I have been lobbying a friend who is in charge of PressDemocrat.com for a long time to dip his feet in the drone journalism pool. A couple weeks ago he suggested the upcoming Sonoma County Fair... Long story short, with a press pass and official fair approvals in hand (and an agreement that this was to be from me, a hobbyist, for no commercial gain, and as an open source project) I had a short window of opportunity. This Tuesday, the day before the fair opened to the public, I was able to get in and safely get some footage of the carnival and horse-racing areas. What a kick!Some of you will discern that the GoPro has no gimbal (yet) - so getting smooth video was no easy task... and I had completely rebuilt my frame on Monday - the day before. Still... very happy with the outcome!
This is my pre-gimbal, pre FPV setup:
Another version... with the evening lights on the carnival rides:
