Every year Zabriskie Pond in Wyckoff, NJ is turned festive with a dazzling display of over 150,000 lights thanks to the efforts of Jerry Ghinelli.
And for the past four years I’ve been shooting footage of it from my drone.
After obtaining my night waiver from the FAA I immediately wanted to shoot this again and had to wait patiently for Jerry to turn the lights on, which he did for the first time on Thanksgiving.
This is the latest version. I hope you like it!
Footage was shot from an sUAS (drone) using several pre-programmed routes. Post shooting footage was editing with the amazing (free) Davinci Resolve software.
