Although we have long conquered the air through aviation, it is now possible to gain height while keeping our feet on the ground, thanks to the democratisation of the use of drones. This new form of technology now allows us to take photographs and videos several dozen metres above the ground. A great way to promote a place in an innovative way!
The UAV makes it possible to take a step back from an event or a site, and thus have a real overview. Certain aspects of the environment will thus, through a global view, take their place in a whole to which they belong. For example, a building under construction may find a certain homogeneity when shown as a whole within a more global architectural complex. Quick to put into action, it will be appreciated by as many people as possible. The photos and videos obtained by drone are taken by all.
Whether it is a construction site, a natural landscape, large scale equipment or events; the subjects are certainly suitable for UAV photography. This technology allows sufficient distance to highlight the scale of an event as well as the progress of a construction site, particularly with “before/after” images. But a UAV photo or a UAV video can also be an opportunity to highlight an architectural specificity or a very precise detail. The UAV is therefore useful in many ways.
UAV photography is also an ecological and economical way to communicate. Indeed, this alternative solution to a camera or a camera embarked on a helicopter, has no impact on nature. In addition, extremely manoeuvrable, UAVs provide the opportunity to obtain extremely precise pictures from unusual angles. Thanks to the dexterity of the pilots, it is possible to obtain images of unusual places!
However, the use of these machines is subject to numerous rules, especially for safety, privacy or certain areas. Moreover, the price of these devices is high, especially for an infrequent use. Also note that despite its manoeuvrability, the UAV will require some time to adapt to its use in order to tame it!
However, modern and dynamic, this new way of apprehending the image has not finished surprising and seducing us. This method proves to have a real added value for your projects.
