I have been lucky enough to have traveled with my camera to many places to shoot, from glaciers in Iceland to rainforests in Costa Rica. There isn't one kind of biome I gravitate toward more than another — I love the mountains and I love the beach — but there is one landscape I have yet to visit: a desert.
In this video, North Borders heads to Stockton sand dunes in New South Wales, Australia, to do some automotive photography with both a camera and his drone. One aspect of shooting with a drone that I have particularly enjoyed is the perspective you can't easily replicate in any other way, especially during golden hour when the light paints shadows. Although desert sands can seem rather plain, when light hits the dunes from an angle, it creates interesting patterns, not to mention the contrast of colors between a deep blue sky and orange sands.
