finalement, here springtime is one of my favorite times of year. Just feels like i’m coming out of hibernation and things are finally starting to bloom and the skies are looking more epic. The trees are filling back in it’s for me, it’s just one of my favorite times of year, other than maybe the pollen and allergies. But that aside i’m really excited that it’s finally spring and over the winter i got creative in other ways and redid some of my garage, which maybe i will use in future videos as another studio. I also tried to get this space a little bit more organized. So just feeling good, finally glad that it’s springtime but that’s, not why you came to watch this video today, so i won’t bore you any longer. What we’re going to talk about in this video is five simple drone movements to help you create cinematic, looking footage now in some previous videos, i talked about different camera settings and drone settings that you want to nail down to really get the most out of your Footage when it comes to shooting with a drone or really with any camera and in those videos, i also touched on a little bit of drone movements just being slow and gradual and not having jerky looking footage and that’s going to help big time. Now with that, bien que, you do want some movement to your footage and that’s going to add a lot of depth and interest to your video, so it’s really important to add movement.
But the right kind of movement and i’ve found that honestly, you don’t need very complex movements to get really nice looking shots. Keep it simple, keep it slow and you’re gon na come away, really surprised at how good your shots look and these five simple drone movements. You can do with any drone whether you have the latest and greatest drone that just came out or a little bit older drone. You can also carry the same techniques over to other cameras if you’re shooting on a gimbal, so with that let’s get into the video. Bien, so the first technique that i want to talk to you guys about is the push or the pull technique. This is probably one of the simplest movements you can do and it’s also one of the most used to do a push or a pull technique. This is achieved by keeping the camera pointed straight ahead and using one joystick to go straight forward or straight backwards. You can put the controller in tripod mode or cine mode to get really nice smooth, lente, controlled movement, which i highly recommend. Bien, the next movement is the rise up. Just like the push or the pull technique. This one is a one. Stick joystick move it’s, the other joystick, no gimbal movement needed just rise up to reveal a location or a subject. I like to use this when i’m rising up next to some trees, or maybe a building, to show the rest of the scene off behind that really simple movement, mais c’est, impressionnant.
Another great movement to learn is the bird’s eye view. Now that is basically exactly what it sounds like what you’re going to do is you are going to hover in place and point the gimbal straight down and to do that to adjust your gimbal most likely on most drones, there’s a little wheel that you can rotate And face that camera straight down it’s as simple as it sounds, flying and filming with the gimbal pointed straight down, but this offers a really unique perspective that is always cool to get. This next shot is getting a little bit more advanced, but really not bad, and a lot of drones actually have this feature built in, which makes it really easy, preferably. I would recommend trying to learn how to fly this manually. Par là, you always have the most control over the device, but this one is the orbit. This one’s a little bit more tricky just because you have to use both joysticks and you’re gon na have to time it out, depending on what you are orbiting around. The goal is to keep your subject right in the middle of the frame and rotate around it, and you’re gon na basically create like an arc, or you can even do a full 360 around whatever subject you’re flying to do this you’re just going to take your Joysticks and point them in opposite directions: whether you’re flying right or left around. Something is going to depend on whether you’re going to put the joysticks facing towards each other or away from each other.
All right and the final drone tip movement for today is the reveal, and this one is another mixture of a couple movements that we’ve done, and you can do it multiple ways, but how i like to do it is i like to start with the gimbal pointed Down i slowly move forward as i raise the gimbal up, and what this is going to do is create a lot of motion right underneath the camera and slowly rise up to reveal whatever scene that you want to reveal. So those are five key drone movements that i would recommend learning and mastering if you really want to step up your game and get better looking drone shots and making epic looking videos, some of these will take some practice and don’t expect to nail them the first Time so get out, there have some fun practice. These shots and uh comment down below. Let me know if i missed any shots that you guys would have recommended for me. I like to keep things simple and keep it fun.
