It’s all about the Golden Hours. Often you may not have a choice when you are going to film something, just because shoots are usually set up far in advance and have many unpredictable factors involved. However, if you do have a choice, by now, the best hours for cinematic drone imagery are the Golden Hours of the day at Sunrise and Sunset. The long shadows during the golden hour will help define terrains’ features.
It should also be noted that fewer people typically film at these times, so just by doing this one essential step, you are already helping to differentiate your drone footage.
Always keep the weather forecast in mind, no matter the time. However, drone surveying during the day doesn’t exclude weather affecting your flight. Make sure to keep your eye on the weather forecast. Plan accordingly. Do not fly in rain, snow, high winds, or fog.
You can schedule for just about any time that’s on our available in our services; however, there are some ideal times to consider! If you want to get some fantastic videos with perfect lighting, consider sometime between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM. During this time, the sun is beaming straight down, providing an overall exposure you may not get if you schedule sooner or later.
