Quadcopter photography is used in a number of different scenarios today.
It is used for military and police surveillance. Firefighters employ the use of drones in situations that are hazardous to manned aircraft. And their use is growing in the civilian, commercial and private sectors.
Aerial surveillance of plants, farming crops and buildings to critical search and rescue operations on land by rescue teams is making use of this new technology.
Film companies are also taking advantage of this new way of recording footage. With new camera angles being explored.
Cameras can be mounted on the aircraft. And some quadcopters have built-in equipment that can film easily in high definition format.
Using a quadcopter for aerial photography has become very popular today.
It opens up a whole area of new options for both commercial and personal use. Quadcopters are very responsive and manoeuvrable. This will allow for photos and videos to be taken that were impossible to achieve before.
Since quadcopters and drones are so versatile and easy to operate, they can be used creatively. And in many different ways. You are only limited by your financial budget. And how good your piloting skills really are.
Learning how to fly the quadcopter effectively, however, is a matter that can only be achieved through practice alone.
For the cost, there are increasingly more budget-friendly quadcopters available to choose from. And demand is continuing to grow daily. So there will be even more in-expensive products available to purchase both online or from your local high street retailer.
We suggest you practice your flying skills using a cheaper model first. The turning of the craft is perhaps the most difficult part of flying. Practice smooth take off and landing before moving on to 360 flipping and rolling etc.
Be prepared to crash a few times in practice though… this is normal as a novice flyer.
Always be sure to follow the required safety rules and common sense when flying the craft.
It is very important that you always keep your quadcopter in your line of sight.
Because even a momentary loss of control of your craft can result in property or quadcopter damage.
The commercial implications are very promising. As audiences are always eager for the beautiful vantage points that aerial photography can bring them.
The best thing about this method is that it can be used directly in commercial endeavours.
If you are going to use quadcopter photography for commercial purposes, however, you do need a special license. One that will vary upon your location and what type of quadcopter you purchase.
Quadcopter photography can suffer from the vibrations and shakiness of flight, but as you grow more adept at piloting your craft these vibrations will decrease. There are also certain technologies, such as brush less stabilizing gimbals, that help to significantly minimize the effects of flight.
Special permissions are also necessary if you plan to fly and film at night. Because there are special hazards that come with night time use of an unmanned aerial vehicle.
First Person View (FPV) photography is a very useful way to do your photography.
The real-time streaming from your quadcopters camera to a viewing device near you allows you to see exactly what it is you are taking a photo or video of.
There are also some suggestions that with the FPV you no longer have to keep the quadcopter in your sight, as you can see what the aircraft itself is “seeing,” but caution should always be used.
Quadcopter photography is a growing field. Becoming more and more popular by the day.
Whether you are looking to use for private or commercial use, a quadcopter will provide stunning photography and video footage that will be sure to impress.
If you are an enthusiastic photographer, or you like recording high quality video, then a quadcopter is possibly the next stage for you.
It will enable you to achieve a higher level of work which would otherwise be impossible.
You will need a professional drone camera for that purpose… to record high definition video at any height up to a maximum of 400 ft above ground level….
If this is an area that you are planning on going into, the rewards are high. And the work is there. And plenty of it.
Providing professional aerial photography services to clients is a service that’s in demand in this country.
All you need is the right tools and equipment…. and flying experience. Which must be earned through consistent practice.
Flying a quadcopter… and being able to have a command of it in flight, will not take long, for a determined flyer.
All you need then is a licence to operate a service business to clients – which you can read more about here.
