Aerial cinematography is the art of capturing video off the ground, from an elevated position. This usually involves devices that are wireless since the video is taken from a considerable height. It can be done using sources such as aircrafts, helicopters, parachutes, drones, kites etc. Aerial cinematography can either be done using hand held cameras operated by photographers on an aircraft, helicopter, parachute etc, or the cameras can be fixed on to the devices and remotely operated by a camera operator at ground level. The latter is a more popular way of aerial cinematography since it is easier and more economic to attach the camera to a portable device such as a drone and capture video from the comfort of your room, office or a location out in the field.
Aerial video, simply put, is a moving picture captured by a moving drone in the air. It is a newly emerging technique that is quickly catching on. It is a form of acquiring data for sceneries or locations. Aerial videography is conducted using low flying drones or aircrafts with cameras fixed within them. These devices have a Global Positioning System (GPS) attached to them to help monitor exact locations along with video feed of those locations. They also have automated image processing to help improve the accuracy of data collection and recording, and make it more cost effective. There is also the option to add audio to the cameras recording data. This enables the data to be processed in real time mode and improve accuracy and relevance of data. Our state-of-the-art technology enables us to record all visuals without motion blur, despite the moving camera. Video recording using a drone is a simple idea with outstanding results. Aerial videography is particularly advantageous for businesses. Although they are widely used by a variety of businesses, a few examples of businesses that use aerial video for their everyday business functions are:
Aerial photography is one of the most advanced forms of photography currently being used by everyone including individuals, companies, and even the government. It is particularly used on a daily basis by news channels and researchers for various projects. Cameras are attached to drones, which can fly to great heights to capture views. The photographs being taken are managed and controlled by a camera operator at ground level who has the camera view, and remote control access that will allow him/her to take the necessary pictures when the drone is flying over a certain area.
Aerial photography is most useful for dangerous areas that may be otherwise unreachable by man. It is great for exploration and research projects. It is also a more time efficient way to explore new areas or discover new objects. There is also a lack of safety concern when using a drone to conduct research in dangerous areas. The cameras used for drone photography in Adelaide are of high professional quality that produce high resolution photography.
Benefits of Aerial Photography
There are various advantages of aerial photography over regular ground photography:
Uses of Aerial Photography
Although aerial photography can be used for many purposes, there are a few main cases where aerial photography is used to a great extent. Cartographers use aerial photography on a regular basis. When designing a map, it is important to know the exact details, location and geographical points of each place marked on the map. In order to accurately mark these places, aerial photography is a great tool. It gives a general view of the area and places located within it without much traveling required. Research teams do not have to do extensive fieldwork and exploration in order to mark maps. Other than a time saving way to create maps, it is also more cost effective since it saves a great deal of traveling and exploring costs.
Trained interpreters also benefit greatly from aerial photography. Aerial photography helps them see which parts of the land have certain activities in place, such as farming, forestry etc. It also enables them to get a general idea of the population structure, land structure, human activity and land use. It is great for surveys for companies that wish to start a project in a particular location, such as opening up a new factory or a new mall. Companies may wish to do surveys for a potential business or industry initiation in an area. It is important for them to get a general idea of the structure at that location. A simple aerial view photograph of the area can answer most of their questions. The amount of empty land available for construction, population, number of houses in the area etc can all be answered by analysing an aerial view shot of the location. Geo scientists also use aerial photography quite frequently to assess landscape of a certain location. It is easy to map the physical and natural environment of a location using aerial photography. Certain environments and locations can be seen to ensure they are suitable for a planned activity or company.
Researchers use aerial photography to get into areas where it is unsafe or untested for humans to
