Delivering a client a great set of images takes more than just having a skilled photographer with the right equipment.
The final and one of the most important steps in the process of delivering stunning images to our clients, is the post processing of the raw images.
Post processing can make a great image even better, however, when deadlines are tight sometimes waiting for idyllic conditions to shoot a great image is not always an option.
When this is the case, extra time spent processing the raw image files can make all the difference between a photo looking okay or fantastic.
Below is the before and after of an image shot on a hazy evening from Newstead back towards the city.
News Corp recently put together this video for ONE Palm Beach on the Gold Coast.
We had the role of shooting both the aerials and level perspective views for this project.
The aerials were shot on our mid-level inspire 1 drone over an afternoon/sunset and the following sunrise/morning. We were very happy with the emotive impact they had on the final piece.
The view perspectives we shot on our large drone with a sony A7R2 professional digital camera. These were shot primarily for print applications and as back plates for renders. But we were also happy with how they were incorporated into the video.
A ground location and lifestyle shoot is a great way to introduce potential stakeholders to the area of your next project. We usually shoot during either the morning or afternoon golden hour to get the nicest lighting, however, sometimes the lunch rush is a key selling point that we are asked to highlight. Shooting in public, without models is a cost effective way to capture the hustle and bustle of nearby parks, shopping districts, and eateries. Shooting with talent is also sometimes the best option when the goal is to capture very specific emotive themes or children
Ground photography is the perfect companion for a great set of aerials, whether they are shot from a drone, helicopter, or both.
Introducing stakeholders to a location with a variety of shooting methods is a great way to show them the big picture, down to the fine details and feel.
