I’ve recently started doing aerial videography for my wedding business and I wanted to share the lessons I’ve learned in starting to shoot footage from the sky. The hobbyist drones you can purchase online or in stores are technically known as UAS: unmanned aerial systems. Many can fly up to 900 feet. With practice, a novice photographer can take really great photos and videos.
2. Learn to fly safely
This is very important. I make sure when I learned I was in open fields that didn’t have many trees. My high school football field worked well for training and practice.
3. Watch YouTube tutorials
That’s how I learned how to fly safely and various tips. And some FAQ’s are answered on this tutorial. One of the best tutorials when I started flying was by Matt Granger, he explained how to calibrate and start the drone.
Some of my drone sample videos:
In my next post about drones, I will share my post production workflow.
