How to Take Great Drone Photos

Everyone wants to be able to take incredible looking aerial drone photos, right? Well snapping the best looking pictures from the sky requires more than simply just owning a drone. You've got to consider 3 main settings and understand how to use them together to capture the perfect shot. Watch this video tutorial to learn what these 3 settings are, and how to configure them for taking great looking drone photos.

Mavic Pro Camera Settings

Drones are incredible tools for taking breathtaking photos and videos from entirely new angles. They are light, portable, and easy to fly. Most of them even shoot in 4K for ultra-sharp video footage.

Long Exposure Photography

Long exposure photography is an under-appreciated tactic that can be used by drone photographers and can add an artistic twist that will impress your clients. In short, long exposure photography is the practice of shooting photos by using longer exposure times than necessary to capture a properly exposed photo. Exposure time is the length of time when the digital sensor inside the camera is exposed to light, also when a camera's shutter is open when taking a photograph. Long exposure photography is perfect for many of the subjects typically shot by drone photographers, including landscapes, architecture, and bodies of water.

Getting Started with Cinemagraphs

This tutorial will help you learn how to use animations that can add flare and interest to your photos, and bring your still drone photos to life.

Learn how to take beautiful HDR drone photos using AEB, and how to accelerate processing by editing multiple HDR shots at once in Adobe Lightroom.

How To Create Panoramas & Tiny Planets

Anoramic photos are really just several photos stitched together to make one really wide photo. There are different kinds of panoramas, all of which can be taken to the next level when shot with a drone. They all have roughly the same process for shooting and editing, but you can choose to get creative when stitching them together.

Using White Balance to Your Advantage

White balance is a key component in all photography, and is essential when capturing accurate recreations of a scene and keeping it as realistic as possible. Auto white balance does a pretty good job of balancing color temperatures in most lighting scenarios, and that’s why people tend to forget about it. It is one of those things that, when correct, goes unnoticed, but when incorrect, is quite obvious and can ruin a photo or video.
