Drones are providing a singular perspective for photographers all world wide. But most of the spectacular photographs and photographs we see function landscapes and concrete scenes from above. Even although drones give us the chance to shoot issues from a terrific top, the sky isn’t the thing of our consideration. That all adjustments on the 4th of July, when firework shows across the US take middle stage.
Fireworks and drones appear destined to be collectively. Or at the very least a modern-day equal of fireworks, equivalent to Intel’s now-famous aerial gentle exhibits. You might have seen them in motion on the Super Bowl earlier this 12 months. Intel’s drone swarm additionally took to the skies at Coachella in April.

But if there’s one factor expertise won’t ever really substitute, it’s the sight, sound (and scent) of real fireworks. This 12 months we wished to convey you the perfect of the motion from above. Here are just a few of our favourite 4th of July firework aerial movies.
Our first entry is from Youtuber Erik Conover. He will get actually shut (possibly a little bit too shut?) to the motion in South Jersey.
According to Curbed Philadelphia, drone pilot Christopher Kao acquired a last-minute inexperienced gentle from the FAA to seize this, from the primary evening of July Fourth fireworks at Penn’s Landing above the Delaware River waterfront.
This video, from TBerrigan Design, rises excessive above the motion to get the fireworks from a distinct (safer) perspective. The footage is accompanied by the real sounds of the show, not simply thumping trance music, which makes a pleasant change too.
The video above was shot on July 4th by Maestro Create. The crew used a DJI Phantom three Professional, proving that DJI’s older fashions are nonetheless proper up there with the perfect.
Sure, it’s from final 12 months, however that doesn’t cease this video, taken with a DJI Phantom four, from being one of the perfect drone firework exhibits we’ve seen. Enjoy…
