Cinematography TipsWe may not be filmmakers, but we do know how we want our videos to look. Taking some of these drone techniques and executing them may be the key to your videos success.
- Tilt Down Reveal
- While moving the drone backwards, tilt the camera down to reveal what it is you want to reveal.
- The Tracking Shot
- If your video involves moving parts, follow the subject with the drone. Either on a horizontal or vertical plane.
- Bird’s Eye View
- This shot is very unique, tilt the drone’s camera down so it is looking straight at the ground, great for b-roll, or setting the scene of your next shot.
- Flying Low
- Often we get a drone, and fly as high as we can. Not in this shot. Flying low and straight can create a perspective where things are moving fast. If you have a fast car to show off, following it lower can make it look like it’s moving faster.
- The Crane
- This shot is where you lower the drone down, but tilt the camera up at the same time. This shot may look like something out of a Hollywood film if done right.
