There’s a reason the phrase, bird’s eye view, is so popular. Viewing something from the ground doesn’t always offer the best angle. Many photographers agree that the best view comes from above. Even real estate buyers know that not everything can be seen from a typical perspective. With aerial photography from helicopter, it’s possible to take everything in from a different angle. Aerial photography is one of the best ways to survey a large area see things that might not have been visible otherwise. Many real estate agents have realized that in order to sell the property, they need to offer more than just an advertisement. Drones have become a very popular way to show off real estate that otherwise might be difficult to view.
When shooting photographs from a helicopter it’s important to choose a good angle. Most pictures that look like satellite photography aren’t considered acceptable. Flattering angles come from a unique angle. Much like shooting from the ground, there needs to be some level of creativity in the photographs. Some photographers may be tempted to take as many pictures as possible in the hopes of getting lucky. In general, it’s best to take a picture once per minute. This should result in some great pictures that capture the best features of the home or property. Using different lenses and filters is also suggested. A dozen pictures with the exact same lens won’t exactly be worth the time and effort of flying around to take photos.
Helicopters are usually the best answer for aerial photography. Planes need to keep moving, which makes it harder to time pictures and get the perfect angle. Larger areas are much easier to shoot from an aircraft that offers more control. For real estate drones are often the optimal solution. Getting tight angles from an aerial perspective is often easier with a smaller craft. Most importantly, unique angles and forced perspective can result in some pretty amazing photos of the home and property.
