To be a good drone photographer, we should know that there are no shortcuts. We have to take the long cut for us to be able to develop our skills and get the right knowledge on how to become a good one. Of course, this is not a very easy goal because we still have to consider a lot of factors such as our own passion with photography and the skills that might or might not come naturally for us. No one is born with hands fit for the camera immediately. Being a photographer takes time to become one and it takes talent and skills and knowledge sowe would be able to be good at it and develop passion for it. This is not a one time deal but we have to be able to immerse ourselves on it with consistency and persistence. We might have the best camera in the world but if we did not know how to rightly use the lenses and the other extra features, it would all still be in vain. We need to be able to learn the right mixture of the settings we have in our camera and used it well together with the things we can find in the environment to create a powerful yet beautiful image. True, pictures paint a thousand words so we might as well paint a beautiful picture.
Get the Right Light
For a device that works with light, it is important that we learn more than just what we can see in the surface. We have to learn about how we can make the best out of our camera. We should take into consideration the light where we will take pictures rather than the brand of camera we have on hand. This is especially true when we are taking pictures outdoors. It is important that we know the direction of the source of light. It is important that we learn about how to play with shadows and we learn about the right mixtures of colors of natural and artificial light. Because light will be a major factor on the quality of our photos so it is best that we take notice of it throughout our entire shoot.
Get to Know Your Camera
After understanding how light works, we have to then pay attention to the features we have in our camera. We need to understand how they work and how they can work together effectively. We have to learn how to use the zoom features and the exposure and other settings. We need to learn how to use it manually rather than be confident with the automatic settings that our camera gives us.
Play with Color
Just as light is important for taking a picture, it is also important that we know how to capture the right colors so we can focus the subject correctly. We need to identify whether we play with colors or create a more dramatic image that is black and white. We have to make sure that soft copy and hard copy of our pictures.
Being a photographer is more than just being able To have the best camera in town. We need to have the expertise and the skills needed to handle photography well.
