  • Fast shutter speed, (1/1000 or faster)
  • Keep white balance settings consistent (RAWs not affected)
  • Geotag photos
  • Aim for 75% forward lap, 75% sidelap
  • Avoid days when there are changing cloud conditions during flight
  • Keep flight records and download digital logs of all flights.
  • Examine images for motion blur or exposure issues immediately after flight
