If all of your photography takes place with your feet planted firmly on the ground you are missing out on a whole other dimension! Drones are changing the way we interact with the world, and – with one of their key applications being aerial photography – the way we look at it. With over 1.5 million posts on Instagram are tagged with #drone, a revolution in photography is taking place over our heads!
Drone Photography & Video Masterclass contains everything a photographer needs to take their craft confidently and expertly into the skies; and everything a drone pilot needs to master this photographic genre. The book 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 (the preflight checklist is a must-read), author Fergus Kennedy demonstrates how the skills of planning, composition, lighting, focus, and exposure remain essential to capturing great images. The advice within is simple, straightforward and clear and provided one doesn’t rush it, and errs on the side of caution, getting to grips with this new technology should be both enjoyable and rewarding.
This isn’t just a guide either as it is packed with stunning photographs from around the world; from a dramatic erupting Guatemalan volcano and birds-eye photo of a whale with her calf to stunning panoramic shots of the British coastline and rich colourful views of Micronesian islands.
Drone Photography & Video Masterclass is the essential and comprehensive guide to realizing the full potential of this exciting new playing field, and elevating the art of your photography to dizzying new heights.
