Drone Photography & Video Masterclass contains everything a photographer needs to take their craft confidently and expertly into the skies. Drone Photography & Video Masterclass takes the view that successful drone photography is all about the shot, not the drone. So, while the reader is equipped with an essential introduction to drone technology, flying skills, safety measures and legal requirements, author Fergus Kennedy demonstrates how the skills of planning, composition, lighting, focus and exposure remain essential to capturing great images. He shows how to transfer camera tools and technique from ground to air to achieve outstanding overhead, panoramic and 360° shots; and how to master gimbal and other skills to bring depth and movement to video tracking shots.
This is the essential guide to realizing the full potential of this exciting new playing field, and elevating the art of your photography to dizzying new heights.
