Features of quadrocopter photography

Quadrocopter – a godsend for a tourist photographer! It allows you to make amazing shots and gives great freedom to the photographer in terms of camera angle. This is especially important when you need to capture something in a dense urban area or in nature. In this way, you can successfully capture natural objects, large-scale buildings. Since it becomes possible to rise to a sufficiently high height, any obstacles can be circumvented, which is completely impossible when using other technologies.

The quadrocopter device makes it possible to rotate the camera in various planes, to shoot at any angle. Such freedom is difficult to achieve using tripods and other simple devices.

Although quadrocopters are still an expensive toy, they nevertheless provide an opportunity to save a lot. The device itself and the camera with good shooting capabilities are not too cheap, but this is a one-time investment, and the shooting process itself does not require additional costs. This is beneficial both for those who are independently engaged in photographing, and for those who order such shootings.

The third advantage is wide automation capabilities. Today, there are quadrocopters that can be programmed by more than 90 percent. Due to this, the scope of their application is expanding further. To take off a birthday from a bird’s eye view, to capture the tourist route, to take off your own wedding – all this is quite real today. Some models also involve the remote introduction of commands via smartphones, orientation using GPS data.

Features of quadrocopter photography technology
Aerial photography requires special equipment and a special approach to work. First of all, it is necessary to decide whether a simple photo from an unusual angle will be enough, or whether it is necessary to take a full-fledged panorama with a 360-degree view. These photographs require different equipment.

Quadcopter shooting

It is necessary to carefully select the quadrocopter and camera: a full-fledged SLR device will weigh quite a lot, respectively, and the moving device should have sufficient carrying capacity, a certain battery charge. There are some limitations: modern legislation establishes the size and power of those aircraft that can be used without additional official registration. A quadrocopter with a camera on a trip needs to choose a more powerful one, so that the battery lasts for a long time.

At the very beginning of the development of this technology, many amateurs received not too high-quality images. This effect is caused by two factors at once: the absence of a stabilization system and incorrect settings of the course of the flying device. The camera should be attached to the quadrocopter through special shock absorbers, with the help of special stabilizers, which ultimately balance the effects of wind, jerks, and shaking from turns. Thus, it is possible to obtain an image even in Full HD format.

When shooting from the air, it is very important to consider the natural illumination and artificial light sources when shooting in a night city. The best result can be achieved at sunrise and sunset, as well as in moderately cloudy weather. The angle and route of flight should also be selected based on the position of the sun at a particular point in time.

There are a number of special tricks that allow you to get the maximum of successful shots and high-quality frames for video editing. For example, you should start work from the highest point. After the first frames are received, you can gradually reduce the height and try other angles, other angles.
