Aerial photography, also known as aerial photography, refers to photographing the earth's landscape from the air to obtain an overhead view, and this image is the aerial photo map.
The camera of aerial photography can be controlled by the photographer, or automatic shooting or remote control. Many people like aerial photography of alpine scenery, which is because this landscape expands limited vision to the infinite reverie of beauty and infinite thinking about life. From the limited beauty of the senses to trigger endless thinking.
General aerial photography can have the following kinds of shooting techniques.
1. Fixed-point hovering.
This is one of the basic methods of aerial photography, shooting moving objects, that can be hovered over, the lens down. Also commonly used to shoot the landscape, hovering after the lens slowly rotates.
2. Direct flight.
Direct flight is a common method of aerial photography, the operation is also relatively simple. The aircraft is selected and fixed at a certain height at a specific angle, and then flies in a straight line. The photographer controls the height of the aircraft, and according to the needs of the shooting to determine the flight path.
And can leave a certain foreground, which helps to strengthen the picture of the sense of space and visual sense, or in order to reflect the scale of the shooting, the number can also apply this method, if the foreground or narrow space, straight flight through will present an open picture, will give a sense of openness.
3. Fly backwards.
This is a variation of the straight fly technique, that is, the straight fly backwards technique, by flying backwards, the foreground constantly shows in front of the audience. If there are multiple levels of shots, then flying backwards is the best choice, but be sure to pay attention to the rear blind spot whether there are obstacles.
Inverted flight can also be combined with other shooting techniques, such as inverted flight and pull-up, highlighting the width and height of the scene, very attractive.
Both can fly straight gradually pull up flyover, the aircraft to a lower height flying straight, the lens fixed angle, close to the target subject in the process of gradually pulling up the height of the aircraft, and close to the target overhead flyover, in the shooting flyover crowds or buildings can use this technique to give the audience an instant visual experience of openness, can also fly straight gradually pull up flyover after looking down, first another object as the foreground, so that in the visual It can have a good turning effect.
5. Head up.
In the flight process gradually lift to adjust the shooting angle, from the restricted perspective to the transition to an open perspective. The head-up operation can be used in different flight directions, combined with straight flight inverted, to give the audience a rich and multi-layered visual experience.
6. Pull up and down.
That is, control the aircraft so that the perspective from low to high, or from high to low changes. Generally divided into the conventional lift and overhead lift. Conventional lift that the lens remains parallel or down, lift operation. Overhead lift refers to the lens downward, vertically for lift operation.
Overhead lift, the lens gradually widens from local to panoramic, from the sky overlooking the earth, with a small to-see-the-big picture effect. Overhead descent is fast approaching the object, rich in impact. Can be pulled up at the same time to rotate and other operations to make the picture more attractive.
