Just because the technology used in it is new, it does not mean that it cannot be equally good as any other type of photography. Aerial photography is similar to the other photography that you may do, but in some ways it is superior. You can create unique photos in the air by using a single camera or you can use a drone. Most of the sky cameras today are single camera devices.
In aerial photography, you need a high-tech aerial drone that will be mounted on a small winged craft. If you are going to shoot a number of aerial photos, it is wise to use a drone that is equipped with a zoom lens, and a wide angle lens, and a long lens for a zoom to give you the opportunity to capture a number of photos. The distance between the camera lens and the drone’s propellers is very important. If you do not use a long lens to capture the aerial photos, you will get blurred aerial photos. Using a high tech camera equipment in this form of photography is very important, because it has a high chance of getting a number of unique shots that is otherwise impossible to get.
Aerial photography is also used for many other purposes. Sometimes it is used as a holiday industry, where many people use the product of aerial photography as they get photos of their favorite places. They use the product of aerial photography to create vacation photos for their families and friends. The latest trend is to use aerial photography to produce aerial photos of parks and beaches, to improve tourism and get people excited about the region. Most of the aerial companies are aware of all these trends and begin using the latest camera equipment for aerial photography to take aerial photos of vacations and beaches for their clients.
Aerial photography has many advantages over the other photography, but a couple of aspects must be considered. The first aspect is the flight speed of the drone, because the drone requires to be agile enough to keep up with the breeze. Some aerial drones are equipped with a maximum speed of 50 mph, and there is a case of drone that is equipped with a maximum speed of 45 mph, that makes it difficult to control the drone, and makes it difficult to get the shot. In such cases, if you can get the drone’s flight speed below 45 mph, it is advisable to take several shots of the product of aerial photography, and make the adjustments for the drone to fly correctly, and get the shot.
* Second aspect is the altitude of the drone, because some aerial drones are equipped with a maximum altitude of 80 feet, and in such cases, the drone needs to be at the right altitude to get the shot. You have to be aware of the wind, and the direction of the wind, because the drone will have to remain at the right altitude to avoid flying over the horizon line, and at the right wind speed to avoid being blown away by the wind.
The second aspect mentioned above is a case of the camera device. This is because the camera devices have to have the capability of taking pictures at an angle.
The latest camera devices include the GoPro Hero3, Hero4, GoPro Hero5, Phantom quadcopters, a DJI Phantom, and the Aeph drone with the new Mavic camera device. The more recent cameras have the ability to take pictures at a minimum of 100 degrees and a maximum of 200 degrees. The standard DJI Phantom can take 200-f degrees photographs.
Even if the camera device does not have the ability to take pictures at angles, you still need to focus the drone’s lens on the target, and keep the shutter open for the required time for the picture to be taken, to avoid blurry pictures.
* Third aspect is the subject of the aerial photo. In such cases, the drone is tasked to take a long range picture of the sea, land, or sky, or a landscape photo of a house. It is required to keep the subject clearly in view from the beginning to the end of the taking.
The aerial drone photography is also a demanding photo, but the subject has been made easier. Aerial drone photography is very easy, because the drone can always fly right over the object being photographed, and in a straight line to avoid bumping into it. This is possible because the camera device has the capability of taking photos at 200 degrees from the beginning to the end of the taking.
