As the name suggests, aerial photography is the art of taking pictures of the surface land using mounted cameras from a height above the Earth’s surface. Such photographs can be clicked using aeroplanes, rockets, helicopters, balloons, kites, parachutes, satellites that are orbiting the Earth, spacecraft or any other object that is capable of flying at an altitude. More recently the use of drones or unmanned aerial vehicles is being done for this form of photography. The mounted cameras can be used from a remote location or may be of the automatic type or may be hand-held by a photographer for clicking the photographs.
This is a method of taking still pictures or capturing a video from an unmanned aerial vehicle also commonly called drones. The best thing about this form of photography or videography is that it is able click images and videos that would be humanly impossible to click. The drone is a machine that allows for first-person view. Drones are of different sizes, possess different flight abilities and have differing capacities because of their designs.
