Five Shots to Try With Your Drone [VIDEO]

Mauro's Films just uploaded this tutorial of five easy shots to try out with your drone.

1. Tilt Down Raising Shot

Mauro, the video's creator, explains, "Frame your object of interest. Start raising your drone, following your object by lowering the cam down."

This shot can be reversed for an even more dramatic look.

2. Side Way Pass

To capture this shot, simply slide the controls left or right.

As Mauro says, remember to frame your main object "in a way that the viewer doesn’t get distracted by other things in the slide."

3. The Jib Raise

“This is another simple and effective way to add drama and variety to your shots,” Mauro says.

Slowly raise the drone behind a main object, and even the sun, to add a cinematic feel to your footage.

4. Point of Interest

Encircling your object can be a great way to establish a scene. It can be done manually or in automatic mode.

"I like to do it in manual because it takes less time, and less preparation for the shots," Mauro says.

5. Tilt Reveal Descend Shot

This shot involves moving the drone forward rapidly and descending down. The footage should last only about five seconds. "Remember to reveal something big and panoramic," Mauro adds.
