With the affordability of drones as today, it is not hard to have stunning aerial photographs. Here are some simple tips you can use to take your drone photography from good to breathtaking! CHOOSE THE RIGHT DRONE On the market, there are variety of drones with typical features. There are two things you need to keep an eye on when buying a drone for aerial photography—the camera gimbal and its FPV(first person view) capabilities. The gimbal is the piece that interfaces the camera and the drone—capturing high quality images from a hovering drone would be very difficult without the assistance of a stabilizing gimbal, and the cheaper the gimbal, the less smooth your picture or video. FPV allows you to see the world the way your drone sees it, a huge plus for lining up your shot perfectly from 200 feet overhead. FPV gives you more precise control over your drone and can allow you to fly higher and farther than would be possible with your own line of sight (LOS). LOCATION IS THE KEY Location is the factor you should pay more attention to in drone photography. Make sure you know well the location you are going to shoot. Avoid flying your drone near airports, heli-pads, nuclear reactors and other sensitive zones and try not to overstep private boundaries. If you want to fly in a land owned by private individuals, contact them and ask for their permission. BRACKETING IS THE KING Bracketing is defined as taking two or more photos of the same subject while using different camera settings. Bracketing serves a couple of purposes: If you made a mistake in assessing the correct exposure, then you can choose the right one from 3 to 5 bracketed photos. You can also use them to create HDR (High Dynamic Range) photos. 95% of my shots are bracketed shots, which allows me to bring more detail into the shadows or bring more detail in the highlights at a later time instead of having only one option from a single shot. POST-PROCESSING Without post-processing, your photos are on the half way to be perfect. Especially, with those who are new in this field, post production is definitely the crucial part. Do not be lazy and share your unprocessed shots straight out of the camera. There is always room for improvement in any photo taken. You will be amazed how photo can be transformed by using your favorite post processing software and benefit from it. The common software are Photoshop and Light room. If you have no time to do it or you have no idea about it. Don’t worry, there are a lot of photo editing companies out there for you to choose. Here are simple tips for attractive drone photos, hope they will be useful for some of you. Please post your comment if you have any opinion.

Skymaster posted a topic in Business AdviceOver the past few weeks as I've launched my new aerial photography business in San Antonio, Texas, easily the biggest challenge I've faced is establishing price points for the various packages I'd like to offer. I've done A LOT of research on this, but the prices and packages vary widely across the country, so what is fair while introducing the technology/service to a new market area?. Currently there is only one other business in the area legally providing these services, and I'm still waiting for my 333 Exemption, so I've also had to balance my desire to promote the business and gain market share with the fact that I cannot yet charge for the services rendered. Considerations we can discuss include: business structure (LLC, Corporation, LLP etc), budget, target audience, partnerships etc. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and recommendations.
