All About Shooting Landscape Images With Your Drone

If you're a landscape photographer, a drone can offer all sorts of new perspectives and creative opportunities. This great video talks about using one, getting good shots, and working around their limitations.

Coming to you from Nigel Danson, this helpful video will give you an introduction to the benefits and difficulties of using a drone to take landscape photos and how to get the best possible images from the cameras in the sky. Danson is using the DJI Mavic Pro, which is a favorite among many photographers and videographers, as its small size makes it easy to transport, but it still offers more advanced capabilities and image quality. I personally use a Phantom 4 Pro, as I love the increased sensor size and resolution, but of course, the downside is that it's nowhere near as portable as the Mavic. You have to find the right balance for yourself. Of all the tips, I think shooting in AEB (auto exposure bracketing) mode is the most crucial. The dynamic range of the smaller sensors is drones is less than that of a larger APS-C or full-frame sensor, and aerial scenery often exhibits extreme ranges of light and shadow, so having that extra information to work with in post is always good.
