Carefully Configuring Your Drone And Camera
You cannot adjust your settings in the air, so configure your drone and camera before takeoff. You should adjust your:
Drone’s preferences and sensitivity settings to match your skill set
Drone’s inertial measurement unit to track location, flight path, and speed
Camera’s gimbal for steady, level vision
Camera ISO and aperture settings for the conditions
Camera aspect ratio to suit your plans for the footage (16:9 for film, 3:2 or 4:3 for still images)

💡Always Be Mindful Of Your Battery Levels
Many drones can fly for no more than 15 minutes. Losing track of time during filming is easy, but it could be disastrous. Some advanced drones will land safely when their battery runs out, but many do not. Setting an alarm at the 10-minute mark can give you time to complete your shoot and land your drone safely.

💙Slow And Steady
Making slow, steady movements will give you the best drone footage. When you want to change your flight path or angle, make several small adjustments. Large changes can create unsteady, jerky footage that’s difficult to watch. Be conscious of wind levels, as they can make flying more challenging.

🎈Perfect The Art Of Panning And More Drone Shots To Master
The simple technique of panning provides a bird’s-eye perspective of a drone’s surroundings. It is sometimes called a bird’s-eye shot. This technique requires smooth, steady flying. Once you’ve mastered it, try the following more advanced filming techniques:

Slide-sides: Captures a subject passing by a drone flying at a consistent altitude
Fly-throughs: Captures footage from a drone flying through a narrow area, such as between two close buildings
Reveal: Reveals a subject by flying over it backward until it’s in frame or bringing it into focus
Flying backward: Offers a unique perspective and ensures propellors and prop shadows aren’t in frame
Orbit: Captures footage from a drone circling an object in the center of a frame
Tracking shot: Follows a moving subject, usually from behind

Conclusion: Drone photography opens up a whole new world of creative possibilities. By following these tips and techniques, you can elevate your aerial photography skills and capture breathtaking shots from perspectives previously inaccessible. Remember to prioritize safety, respect local regulations, and always fly responsibly. So, grab your drone, explore the skies, and let your creativity soar!
