Class Description

You’ve got the basics down on how to fly a drone and use it to shoot photos and video. But how do you take it to the next level and create images that stand out from the crowd? Join FAA-certified drone photographer and videographer Dirk Dallas for an on-location shoot in Washington state and learn how to use your drone to create stunning, dynamic, and powerful work.

In this class, you’ll learn how to:

  • Adjust exposure and focus settings to make your images and footage pop.
  • Master cinematic drone moves, including flying backwards.
  • Utilize intelligent flight modes that can help in tight spots.

As drone photography becomes more common, it’s important to distinguish yourself and your work. This course will teach you the techniques that will help you advance your skills and create breathtaking moments that take full advantage of this exciting medium.

There was some good and helpful information here! However he stated that when shooting video he sets the camera focus on a stationary subject and then put it in manual mode so as to avoid the camera re-focusing on a different plane, but I would have liked to have heard his tips for camera focusing on his shots where the subject was moving toward or away from the camera.
