Aerial Video & Photography for Brisbane Shade Sails, South Ripley
Brisbane Shade Sails is a Brisbane based company that specialises in large commercial and residential shade sail structures. They had a need to photograph and document finished shale sail structures from above however hiring a helicopter was prohibitively expensive with the added disadvantage of not being to get close enough for detailed photography, while using a cherry picker as an alternative also too slow, cumbersome and expensive with the added disadvantage of needing to hire a professional photographer as well as the cherry picker’s limited height and access points.
The company therefore contacted DroneAce with the idea to video and photograph a number of recently finished shade sail structures in the suburb of Ripley South, 45 minutes south west of Brisbane. The task was to take a sequence of aerial drone videos capturing a variety of shade sail structure including close ups as well as capturing “establishing shots” to present the entire structures in their built environments, in this case public parks. We captured a range of 4K 25fps sequences including orbits, fly buys, high rotations, pans and dollies and edited them together to form an captivating promotional video with interesting upbeat music.
DroneAce are Aerial Photography Experts
All the photographs of the shade sail structures were captured using exposure bracketing (5 photographs of the same image taken with different exposure settings) and then combined together using high dynamic range imaging (HDRI) techniques to extend the dynamic range of the photographs. This ensures that both detail in the shadows and the highlights are preserved and results in the very best quality photographs possible.
All up we provided 25 aerial photographs plus an edited 90 second video at a fraction of the cost of conventional methods of capture representing great value to the client.
More example of our aerial photographs are viewable in the drone photography gallery.
