One of the things that makes photographer Adam Gibbs' behind the scenes videos so good is that he mixes in awesome drone footage to showcase the scenes he explores. It makes sense then that he would be a great resource for tips about using drones.

Specifically, Gibbs offers tips for how to capture drone images and video when using it in tight woodland spaces. He shares his settings and also offers tips and tricks for safely piloting your drone in an area where there are many objects into which you could accidentally fly. For the curious, Gibbs owns a DJI Mavic Pro and DJI Inspire 1 Pro with X5 camera.

While Gibbs is clearly an experienced drone user, that doesn't mean you have to be to safely capture great footage. It's important to take advantage of your drone's safety features and not push the limits of your skills. It's okay to make mistakes, but it's even better to take things at your own pace.
