Step 6) Nail your Post Processing
Once you’ve gone to the trouble of selecting the right gear, scouting the location, made sure all your camera settings are all correct, and then finally composed a wonderful image – you cannot stop here! There is one absolutely critical part of the photography process that cannot be missed, and that is Post Processing.
Modern day software is so powerful, it brings out features in your images that would otherwise remain unseen. By smoothing out contrast issues or refining white balance, these sorts of things can really make your images pop and stand out from the crowd. Every image will require at least a little touch up so it is important that you understand the basic techniques.
How does Post Processing Help Video?
When editing video, Post Processing allows you to stabilise your shot to such a degree that it can make or break the final result. Because of this, tools like Warp Stabilization should be a staple in any drone photographer’s repertoire. Post Processing also offers the benefits of straightening horizons, removing lens distortion, improving image clarity, a greater range of colours, and also capturing the audience’s attention with the use of highlights.
So we’ve gone over some important techniques that should help to improve the quality of your aerial photography by a fair bit. If you would like to learn more useful tips or other related drone news, feel free to visit the Buzz Drones blog.
