Aerial photography is more than just taking photographs or videos from the air - there is so much more to it than simply using a drone and flying up to take photographs. Many considerations have to be taken into account when conducting aerial surveys or producing aerial photographs or aerial video to ensure that the footage or data are useful. The topographic on the ground can easily be out of focus or hidden by shadows. Lighting, color, aperture, and exposure are just photographic elements. Aerial Flight, weather, and safety are also critical components. A good pilot and an excellent photographer can together produce awesome aerial photographs and videos.
