Join Jim Heid for an in-depth discussion in this video Tips for better aerial video, part of DJI Mavic Pro: Tips, Tricks, & Techniques.
- We've looked at a lot of the fundamentals…behind getting properly exposed video.…Now let's talk about a couple of the things you can do…to make your aerial video clips more interesting.…Now that millions of people have these flying cameras,…the whole novelty of seeing video from the air…isn't as much of a novelty anymore.…So what can you do to make your shots stand out?…Of course, things like Active Track…and point of interest orbits are great, but there's more.…One thing I try to do is set up shots…that have a strong foreground and background relationship.…This is an important composition concept…in any kind of photography or filmmaking,…but it takes on a special dimension in the air.…
In a shot like this one,…you get a lot of interesting perspective shift…between the foreground, those trees were just clearing,…and the background, that distant valley.…There's a real sense of depth to the scene.…Another thing I like to do is flybys,…through things or just pass them…like these palm trees in Hawaii…or like this beautiful old trestle bridge…
