The use of the copter gave many opportunities for shooting the most unusual photos. And if you are going on vacation with friends, be it the sea or hiking in the mountains, be sure to bring such equipment with you. Our simple tips will help improve the quality of your photos. So let’s try to create a couple of flawless aerial shots! The review uses photographs by Christoph Oberschneider taken with the DJI Mavic Pro.
1. Remove any sport
Top-notch action shots come from filming a volleyball game with friends, or a son playing tennis. The cunning and intricate actions of athletes, elusive when shooting from the ground, can always be caught from the air. And if you shoot them from unusual angles, then the pictures will obviously be original. No need to stand still and obsess over athletes, you can find the perfect backdrop for a stunning effect.
2. Share the majestic view
There are many places where you can see the sprawling expanses of nature, or the landscape of city streets and majestic buildings. Visit the old city, where you will surely find ideas for filming. It can be not only noisy, but also a secluded place where the copter will film you from behind walking forward. The view from a hill, mountain, or high-rise building will allow you to be on top of the world, and at the same time see and capture an amazing picture.
3. Use water for the background
A truly remarkable view is obtained when shooting yourself or others against the backdrop of the sea, river, lake or pool. In order not to get lost on the water surface, you should take bright props. It can be a bathing cap, inflatable toys and rubber circles. And if you place them correctly, then you will look great in the frame.
4. Shoot different shapes
Unusual things often attract attention. You can ask friends to lie on the ground and draw letters so that the words can only be read from above. You can trample or make crop circles with stones, just like the UFO does. It is allowed to use various objects, and lay them out in a special way. You should lie down on the ground and pretend that you are running away.
5. Take action shots
You can add drama to the frame. To do this, it is advisable to lie on the edge of a sheer cliff, and photograph the gaping abyss. The original photo is obtained due to the 3D effect — it significantly enlivens the picture, and makes the viewer dive into the image.
6. Get out in nature more often
Maybe you didn’t hit the glaciers this year and couldn’t travel across the ocean, but you can still find great views in the backyard of the house. You can capture your adventures in photography. Whether you’re swinging or starting a fire, launch your aircraft into the air and shoot at a fast shutter speed.
