If your drone videos aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough

Famous Magnum photographer, Robert Capa once said that “If your photographs aren't good enough, you're not close enough.” The same is likely true for drone videos. Check out this one from Hermes Photography.

If Your Drone Videos Aren'T Good Enough, You'Re Not Close Enough 1

I think it is a great example of ‘If your drone videos aren't good enough, you're not close enough.' Getting your drone (or camera) close to the action makes your drone videos so much more dramatic and more immersive for the viewer. It literally feels like you are right there in the middle of the action. Great video!
