5 Helpful Tips for Better Drone Landscape Photos

Drones have become a powerful and versatile tool for landscape photographers, giving them the ability to reach perspectives and create images that simply were not possible just a few years ago. If you are a landscape photographer and interested in adding one to your arsenal, check out this fantastic video tutorial that will give you five simple tips for better drone landscape images. 

Coming to you from Nigel Danson, this excellent video tutorial will give you five tips for taking better drone landscape photos. The beauty of drones is that they have become so compact and lightweight that you can easily toss them in your bag where a single lens would normally go, making it easy to always have one on hand when the opportunity arises. If I had to give a new drone photographer one tip, it would be to explore every possible angle. Not only are they great for taking images pointed toward the horizon from an elevated perspective, they can show off the sort of unique geometry of the earth, which can help you create quite compelling abstract shots that simply would not be possible from ground level. So, don't forget to tilt the camera down every once in a while. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Danson.
