This can depend on your personal preferences, and on what you are trying to accomplish. For example, partly cloudy weather can add a display of texture to the sky that is ideal for marketing photos, while the softer light near sunrise/sunset can give a different tone to the photo than the full sun in the middle of the day.
Importantly, we can not operate our drones in rainy or foggy weather, or if the wind is too strong or gusty. Conditions such as these will require a reschedule, so you should take into account the possibility of some delays when planning the shoot.
Operations are also restricted to daylight hours, being morning civil sunrise to civil sunset. Basically, if the sun is almost about to climb above the horizon, we can operate from then, until just after is has set below it.
Started flying in early 2006, and flying jets since the end of 2008. Just under 10 years on the Airbus A330, and was flying the A380 since Christmas 2018 until this virus mess.
Into just about everything aviation/space related!
Got my CASA RePL (Remote Pilot Licence) in October 2020, and am operating the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Mini 2 for aerial photography around South East Queensland.
Currently stood down indefinitely from flying work due to the COVID-19-related economic catastrophe. Doing some odd-jobs on the internet to keep up some cashflow, and have started work in a bottleshop. Studying iOS (Swift) development online through RMIT to get a formal credential in the field, and have started a Data Analytics online course.
