The network has been flooded with aerial photographs that will leave you breathless. The minimum that tend to cause it is a “Woooow!” And is that are so fascinating that it’s hard not to succumb to their charm. A few years ago, to achieve an aerial photography was available only to the privileged few who sailed the heavens. Now, with drones, photography is much easier and affordable.

And that makes you enter a terrible urge to make with a drone, there are many types and prices, and throw you to capture snapshots from the heights.

From here we encourage you to do so. You can get to be a task full of incredible that enjoy a lot. Now, best to first read these tips because if not, the experience of the flight can be converted into a nosedive. In figurative sense, and also literal.

We’re going to have to get used to living with them, learn to use them


I’ll start here, because I think that is one of the most important and probably least understood. And you don’t have it in mind it can bring you much more severe problems that do not achieve the photo you want.

Before you fly any drone, it is important that you know what are the laws that regulate the airspace and the use of drones. the FAA in the United States for example

Each country has its own regulation, in some it is more restrictive or is more advanced in terms of implementation, others are still working on it, there are others with more gaps, etc, that is why it is very important that, before you jump to fly a drone, you report what are the laws or regulations of the place where you’re intending to do so. You go to take photos with him or not ;).

On the other hand, and as you can see in the picture above, it is not the same thing that you go to give a use for recreational or professional. To learn more please consider this.

Before you continue, I’m going to make a small clarification, because it is likely which you have read about what RPA and you’re wondering what it means:

  • Drone: form of colloquial call any unmanned craft.
  • UAV: “Unmanned Aerial Vehicle” or what is the same, unmanned aerial vehicle (autonomous or piloted remotely). When you include your partner system is called UAS.
  • RPA: “Remotely Piloted Aircraft”, the aerial vehicles piloted remotely. If you include the associated system (as the control station) is referred to as RPAS.

This is merely informative, and if you see the acronym and you don’t know what you mean, that it is not necessary that you do a master’s degree in the subject ;).


The security is very much tied to the previous point. You are responsible for your drone and the damage you can cause with him, personal or materials. That is why it is very important to respect the rules and be extremely careful.

You are solely responsible for the drone

What drone I buy it?

Once you are clear that there is to start taking into account the safety regulations and the rules, you can start thinking about what to drone use to make your photographs from the air. Also this theme is to think about it a little, because as much as I will give you the budget to spend 500 dollars on a drone, to begin with, it is highly recommended that you buy a drone mercatino with the practice and that it doesn’t hurt if the star. Because it is very likely that this will happen if you don’t have experience. Then, if you like, and you catch the trick to that of the flight remote, you can jump to other device that meets your technical requirements in as far as photography is concerned.

Now some general tips to get you started in the world of the drone.

  1. As I have already told you, at the time of purchase, best first cheapest one to practice and not give you a heart attack if you are a star and you stay without him.
  2. If you have the option, get yourself a pack of batteries, the flights are short and can you keep wanting more.
  3. Practice enough before you try to get a good photo, you’ll first need to focus all of your energy to fly, then fly and make the photo.
  4. It is not necessary to risk with a deck to the Top Gun, you’ll achieve best snapshots if you pilot soft.
  5. Avoided, of course, the rain.
  6. Before you fly, clean the glass.
  7. The clouds at an average height will be your best allies.
  8. Try to give depth to your photos photography elements in different planes.
  9. Test with photographs zenith, whenever the camera of your drone permits.
  10. As long as you can shoot in RAW.
  11. Take care of the composition of the image as in any other type of photography.
  12. Plan to take account of the sun or your location and the weather.
  13. Studied before the place.
  14. Remember to check the rules and legislation.
  15. Eye with the shadow of the drone ;), unless you want to include it in the picture for something… that’s why planning is essential.
  16. Test flights low, a way to stand out from the aerial photography that can be achieved from a helicopter or the like, which may not go down too. In the middle is the virtue.
  17. Seeks to convey emotions and feelings, harmony, chaos, loneliness…
  18. Trying to achieve compositions based on color, geometry, search photos, abstract, pattern, lines, texture, symmetry, contrast, recognizable forms.
