One of my favorite types of drone photography shots is the “nadir” shot. I consider the “nadir” shot to be a topographical photo looking directly down from the hovering drone. Repetitive patterns such as parking lots, junkyards, and farm fields are my favorite subjects for this type of shot. This is a rural salvage yard in Callaway County, Missouri. This type of photograph can only be done in the Winter because, during the other seasons, the tree growth is too dense and hides the subject matter.

The photograph was taken with a DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone with a Hasselblad L1D-20c camera at ƒ/2.8 with a 1/160-second exposure at ISO 100. The processing was done with Adobe Lightroom CC.
