Join Jim Heid for an in-depth discussion in this video Tips for shooting aerial panoramas, part of DJI Mavic Pro: Tips, Tricks, & Techniques.
- A drone gives you a panoramic view of the world,…and one of the things I love to do…is shoot panoramas with it.…Sometimes a full 360 degrees, but mostly…just part of a scene,…anywhere from three to six or seven shots.…Shooting an aerial panorama involves taking multiple…photos and rotating the drone between each one,…making sure to leave about 30% overlap between each photo.…When you get back to the ground, use Lightroom,…Photoshop or other software to stitch those images…into a single, seamless panorama…that you can print, share online or add to a video project.…
I've shot a lot of aerial panoramas with my Mavic Pro…and with my Phantom 4.…And the key to getting good results is to use…the same exposure setting for each image in the panorama.…If you don't, if the images have wildly different…exposure settings, your resulting panorama…will probably have noticeable differences in brightness,…especially where the images meet.…Here's another area where manual exposure…is your best friend.…Before you take the first shot, look around with the drone,…
