In this day in age, technology is a constant state of flux, ever-evolving, and developing to the consumer’s changing needs. This is no different for the world of media and videography. We’ve come a long way since the days of Charlie Chaplin or George Mellies, and it shows within stunning films such as Gravity or Life of Pi. But the most audacious and impressive new piece of technology is none other than drone photography.
With a multitude of shooting options and choices, drone photography is a state-of-the-art form of shooting that is both awe-inspiring and jaw-dropping all at once. With so many artists and photographers out there, it’s nearly impossible to stand out from all the rest. Sometimes it feels like a fully-fledged war among creators. So how does one make their work stand out from all the rest? The answer is drone photography, of course.
How Can We Shoot This?: Capture Angles You Usually Couldn’t
We’ve all been to the movies and fell under the spell of a gorgeous camera shot. Whether it be the composition of the frame or the lighting of the scene, there are always those few shots that seem to take our breath away. But we seem to never ask the most important question, “How?” How do these filmmakers achieve these brilliant and compelling shots? One of these shots that seem to elude explanation is the classic aerial shot or bird’s eye view. Usually, this is achieved by a crane, but most of the time, a drone is used when it comes to getting this shot. But when Hollywood pours millions into the use of a crane, how does an amateur filmmaker achieve the same shot with a lower budget? The answer is simpler than you would think.
Through the use of a drone, you will capture any shot from any angle you need for your project. This could be a wide shot of an exterior or even a bird’s eye view looking down onto your subjects. No matter what the shot may be, the use of a drone will make it achievable and affordable.
Ahead Of The Enemy: Giving Your Photography An Edge
It’s no secret that the world of photography is a lethal battleground, and like the game of thrones, you either win or die trying. This is why it is absolutely imperative that you make your work and portfolio distinct and stand out from all the rest. But how does one do that with a limited budget? Again, the answer is the use of a drone. A drone gives you a crystal clear image with a striking definition that practically seduces your eyes to be mesmerized.
Drone photography is cutting edge technology that not only gives you more freedom as a photographer but higher quality photos as well. This will give a headstart over the rest of the aspiring photographers and videographers out there.
Smooth As Butter: Capturing Smoother Motion
Nobody likes shaky camera work. From The Blair Witch Project to The Hunger Games, shaky camera work has left audiences nauseous and disoriented all across the world. It’s a shame when big-budgeted films still can’t capture smooth motion through their camerawork, but it makes sense with independent filmmakers. A lower budget means tighter corners. But there’s no need to fear, for the work of a drone is here to save the day.
The footage a drone captures is debatably smoother than footage captured by a Steadicam or tripod. This allows your video to appear clearer and more coherent within the story it is trying to tell. It will also make your work look of higher quality, even when your budget didn’t allow for it.
