Check the UAV forecast

The first and most important thing you have to do before taking your drone out for capturing images is to check the UAV forecast, which gives proper information for the safety of both the pilots, the aircraft and other people or buildings in surrounding area. UAV forecast will help you by letting you know that which areas are off-limits, what will be the weather for the day, how many GPS satellites are active within that particular area and many more. Always check the UAV forecast before heading out, as it will help you to plan your shoots accordingly.

Shoot in RAW Format

Capturing photos in RAW format will always gives you more details in post-processing. In this way, you will get uncompressed, lossless image data from the sensor. The important amount of detail and resolution that can be protected includes more level of brightness, allowing you to make exposure and colour adjustments without making the image look odd. These days, most of the drones support RAW format for images. So always check before you get one!
