Drone Photography & Video Masterclass contains everything a photographer needs to take their craft confidently and expertly into the skies; and everything a drone pilot needs to master this photographic genre. The book takes the view that successful drone photography is all about the shot, not the drone. So, while the reader is equipped with an essential introduction to drone technology, flying skills, safety measures, and legal requirements, author Fergus Kennedy demonstrates how the skills of planning, composition, lighting, focus, and exposure remain essential to capturing great images. He shows how to transfer camera tools and technique from ground to air to achieve outstanding overhead, panoramic, and 360º shots; and how to master gimbal and other skills to bring depth and movement to video tracking shots. Applications from 3D mapping and modelling to landscape and travel photography are covered, demonstrating the range of markets and creative possibilities available to the professional drone photographer.

Drones offer a genuinely new perspective, a bird’s-eye view previously out of reach for most photographers and filmmakers. Drone Photography & Video Masterclass is the essential guide to realising the full potential of this exciting new playing field, and elevating the art of your photography to dizzying new heights.
