How to Make Your DRONE Footage CINEMATIC (Part 3)


Brett Garamella with BrettGaramella.com here. In this video I’m going to show you 3 ways
to make your drone footage more cinematic. SETTINGS: The first way to make your drone
footage more cinematic is to go into your settings and lower the contrast. Lowering the contrast desaturates your image. If you wanted more muted colors, you could
desaturate your image even more. With some DJI drones you can do this by shooting
in D-Cinelike mode. The next way to make your footage more cinematic
is to shoot at 24 frames per second, or 24fps, with a shutter speed of 1/50 second. You probably need the right ND filter to shoot
at 1/50th of a second, especially if you shoot with a low f-stop number, which I recommend. HOW YOU SHOOT: The next way to make your drone
footage more cinematic is to use the same cinematic shooting methods
that you use to shoot normal video, using various shots such as: pull back and reveal,
slider, gimbal up, and junk the front. Make sure most of your movements are slow
and smooth. Try shooting in Tripod mode. Also, adjust your gimbal smoothness and speed,
so it goes up and down very slowly. I like to adjust my gimbal smoothness and
speed on my DJI Mavic 2 Pro is around 8-12 out of 50. WHEN YOU SHOOT/LIGHTING: The third way to
get great cinematic drone footage is to shoot during golden hour, or
during sunrise and sunset. Most drones don’t have large sensors, so
they can’t handle dramatic contrast of midday sun (brightness and shadows). The sun’s light has a softer quality, more
cinematic in color tone, and less intense during golden hour, providing perfect cinematic
light quality and quantity. This usually lasts from 20-60 minutes depending
on where in the world you shoot and what time of year it is. Golden hour usually lasts longer the closer
you are to the north and south poles, and shorter near the equator. The last part of cinematic lighting is direction
of light. Try shooting into the sun or with the sun
just outside the frame to provide a great, cinematic flair from a 45-degree angle. This is one of my favorite ways to shoot. Alright, congratulations! Thank you for watching my video series. If you found it helpful, please share it with
