Aerial Photography: Tilt Shift Effect

We're going to show you how to create a little told shift effect because it kind of works really well with these, we're going to go in the next room segment, you know? We're going to get much more in depth of this kind of stuff when we do the smart filters and stuff of that trust me, it's gonna be fun. This one here, I'm going to go in here and just going to do some adjustments here, we're gonna grab camera, roll a filter, I'm just going to clean it up quickly and, you know, this is basically hire work normally, like, super fast um one that up a tad that goes, I'm just making some adjustments. I don't think I have to explain them because I think I already have, um just kind of point around a little bit. The other thing? Oh, yes, presets, you know, you can create presets if you want camera presets and you can apply these presets very easy. So once you've done one and you want to say that you just click here and we'll just call this one c l for creative live do, too, because it probably ...

did one already, um and that's a priest it so you can actually go through the different presets and apply them in one click and on my bonus material, giving you guys for free, I've also got some camera presets and stuff I'm giving away as well. So as well as some extra videos on these so it's a preset too great, I use them all the time as a starting point, so you create that preset, and then you get back in here and you might, you know, going curves or whatever and tweak it a little bit. I think you've created the preset to get the best adjustment, but anyway, let me just go here, just apply this, and what we're going to do is we just can apply until shift effect I would normally do. This is a smart object, but I'm going to save that for the next segment, not going to steal the thunder from that. I'm just going to apply it right now directly onto here. So under the filter, we've got this, um, blur gallery, right. So under the blur gallery, we have different filters here and these air nondestructive filters. And these are all in cc only. And kenneth said something yesterday that darby's got crazy. Fifteen percent off the ten dollars a month things that dude it's like eight bucks a month get c c don't don't comply, I don't have a box of mothers a cup of coffee, and I'm not doing that to pitch it over, but I'm saying that because you get push up and lie room and I used them and I love them and seriously it's the list, then, you know, spotify subscription, alright, so it'll shift, so we're going to go in here under still shift, and what we can do is we can emulate, you know, that little tiny toy thing on going to do that. So I'm just going to go down here, I'm going to bring the top down and okay, what these do is if I turn this up and increases him and a blur, the area between the two lines is a safe zone that's, the sharp zone, it's always going to be sharp, then the falloff happens between those in the dotted line. So this is where the transition happens from shop to blurry so you can make it happen very, very quickly, or you can make it happen more gradually, depending on how you want to do it. You can also change, you know, as you can see and hear these sizes, so you can change it their way, and you can change the angle you click over here and and we get over that little thing there, we can change the angle, the shift key will constrain it. See that constrains those angles. So you go different things you can do with that. So I'm gonna drop it down to about there were going to create this little kind of till shift effect here and how it works. Really? Is it emulates, you know, that's an optical illusion, but what really happens is when you look a tw different field, you know, the way that kind of different field meeting chop too blurry, what makes it look like a toy is his scale, right? So typically speaking, if you've got a camera and you sit your dip of field on a near subject, so if I put my camera here and I should I get it very shallow f stop, I can get the sharp and this will fall off so it's going to be, like, super blurry here and you guys back, they're going to be just a glorious this is old blurred or, you know, if I've got a sharp, you'll be sharp that this table is going to be blurred. However, if I'm shooting an object really far away, that different feel thing is not gonna work so much is going to be a lot harder. To apply that. So, you know, say, for example, I have two of you here. I can make one of you shop one ofyou blurry, but you go, you know, fifty yards down the road. I'm not going to be able to do that. You either both going to be sharp or you're both gonna be blurry. At least get a super zoom lens. That's why? Sometimes a zoom lands is able to create a different kind of, you know, different feel, you know, like the offered hitchcock thing. You know, when you pulling the camera back is resuming, it creates that parallax effect. So what happens is that this is really far away and he's a really big objects, and typically speaking, I couldn't differentiate the depth of field at that distance, so, you know, it used to that, but if I was doing a little model and that model was on the table as oppose, you could do that different field. So by doing this here, as you know, the till shift effect like I'm applying here, it makes it look like a toy. And the reason that works is because of that different field falling off. So the scale off the blur is different in the scale of reality. So does that kind of make sense? I mean, it's china described the science behind the optical illusion on any other thing you can do to to make these look more convincing is the saturation, so I could actually just do an adjustment land, it's just to a huge saturation adjustment layer here, and I'll push the situation a little bit, and the reason I'm doing that is because typically, when you've got toys, toys tend to be a little bit more colorful than their reality. Have you ever looked a little transit system? Unless they're like super, you know, expensive and super accurate ones in there, you know, they're more accurate. Most kids toys are usually more colorful than what you see in real life. So anyway, so that's kind of how you would do that. I mean, I'm looking at right now, I probably should go little rid of the lands distortion first probably would look a lot better, but essentially that's how you would do your dip, the field effect we do have a question. How big of prince can you make out of drone? Large things offensively, print rumors you could technically infinity if you take a drone on like, say, for example, you've got it and he's another cool thing about a drone. Is if you wantto photographs I mean you don't have to rotate like that like so you do a mole on going to go into bridge going to show you something here I'm just gonna grab these two just absolute grab this to show something and you could fly parallel with something so obviously these an organization into a um because I'm just grabbing a couple of random ones into photo emerged they're not going to merge together but what I can show is you get the option to reposition so you could technically you know, fly along, take a photo, fly along, take a feather, take a federal for miles and every position them so you know, the limitation really is the limitation of how big printers that can print and also you know what welcome photoshopped handle. So having said that I know that absent of printed stuff for me you know the biggest print I have it is for me to that wall over there army to the audience there was one I did of her why it was in a while who and it was showing the the crater and all the way across showing honolulu and old I mean very, very beautiful so you can actually get a way off a lot and you can also use other plug ins you know, like aliens could blow up or genuine fractals which is now perfect resize to increase the size of the photographs from what you shot and got a wife a little bit more. But one of the things you gotta watch with ease as you can get noise. Little bits of sometimes campus looks really good, because the campus hides that noise. So long. Answer for a very short question.

Class Description

UAVs, drones, multi-rotors, and quadcopters are flying tripods capable of framing photos in three true dimensions. Learn how to work with the images they capture in Crafting Aerial Drone Photos with Colin Smith.

In this class, you will learn how to set up the perfect shot, and how to turn the images from a drone-mounted camera into a full-sized work of art. You’ll learn what it takes to bring an image from a small camera to life, and how to make aerial panoramas from multiple photographs and video.
