Photography has reached altogether to a different height with the concept of Drone Photography. Hi-tech cameras flying up in the air enable you to capture some stunning and breathtaking viewpoints that leave your jaws wide open.

Because of the recent price drop, one can determine to reinvent the world of photography with this state-of-the-art device. Drones or UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles) can vary in cost depending upon the camera quality and flying attributes of drone. Whatever may be the price, we know the thumb rule of photography that more than your equipment, your skills and techniques will immensely help you in achieving spectacular images.

                            Below we have thoughtfully scrutinized some best Drone Photography Tips for you

  1. Use the RAW Format

Shooting in RAW format is always advisable as it offers flexibility in processing the image later. The image captured in this format is not compressed and there’s no loss of data too. All you get is a pure resolution, bright and detailed image which allows you to experiment with any further exposures and adjustments.

  1. Create Panoramic View

In case of basic drone cameras, because of the relatively low megapixel count your drone have limited photo resolution. But can make it work by using the technique of panorama effect. Drones already having this built in technique can straight away implement this. For rest of the drones lacking this feature, carry out multiple shots of a particular subject, thereafter combining all the shots together via editing software (Adobe Lightroom) to get a perfect superior quality panoramic image.

  1. Create Patterns and Symmetry

The best use of drone lies in capturing symmetrical pattern and lines which makes the entire experience of photography a total worth. Make use of this unique pattern and line concept, to stir uniqueness and freshness in your captured images and inspire your audience.

  1. Bring in Light, Contrast and Shadows

In photography, light always shows you the way. We mean that, with the right light balance you can beautifully draw tone, ambiance and mood in your photos. Playing with shades of lights and shadow is altogether a different experience with drone. Balancing the sunlight (after sunrise and before sunset) along with shades and contrast colors that are captured from a height will produce a dynamic image.

  1. Go for a Selfie

Selfie work wonders with drone. As its not you and only you who will be captured but drone selfie will lay down a huge natural background for you, deep and intense enough. The tip being that choose an isolated landscape or a clear sky that will prove to be ideal as a backdrop. If your drone supports hand or arm gestures (drone having Gesture Mode), just instruct and place your drone at the right angle, begin your countdown and there you get your photo.

  1. Stick to a lower ISO

Because of small sensors in drone cameras, they don’t go well with high ISO (more than 100). Resultant your drone captured images are left with grain and noise. The technique being, set the ISO at low range at the same time manually adjust the exposure for the image. This should yield in sharp and noise free images.

Ultimately, explore the height, effects and different angles of drone and create a wider horizon in your photos with the help of this little flying creature. Explore more about photography at 69 drops Studio’s Photography Studio in London
