Aerial views of snow in Loughborough

Written by Posted on Categories: Photography, Videography Tags: ,

It snowed in Loughborough! On the 10th December 2017 we had about 4 inches of snow, which stayed on the ground for the next few days and looked best the day after in the sunset. This was a great chance to take a load of photos & videos and here's a quick video I made from some of the drone shots:

The whole video was produced in 4k and I worked on a few custom transitions for it. Featured in the video are aerial views of Loughborough University, town and quarry. I'm pretty happy with the video and it's fun to play around with the colours...

Colour Grading

I shot all the footage on the drone with a flat colour profile - with less contrast and saturation than usual, so I could colour grade it later. On the left you can see the ungraded video, then on the right I've graded it with a LUT and a few other edits:

I also made a shorter more Instagram-sized version
