Drone photographers getting a lot of attention

Looking out of the window of a plane, the world never gets old. There is an underlying fascination and beauty in checking things from a different view, which is likely why DIY drone photography has really taken off. Well, drones can reach where humans cannot, and in this way, they have introduced a brand new way of viewing both the practice of photography as well as the world around us.

As technology prices goes down, access to more interesting gadgets increases. Once, while just for tech-heads, one could now purchase an entry-level drone fixed with a camera for less than $200. But just because you could walk into a shop and purchase one, that does not mean one would automatically be able to achieve great photographs. Like all forms of art, there is creativity and skill required.

Perth-based landscape photographer Kirk Hille, who recently started drone photography, told that getting a good drone photo uses the same techniques as any other type of photograph.

It needs everything – framing, positioning, subject, angles and lighting. More importantly, you have to fly the thing as well. Gabriel Scanu, a Sydney-based photographer, have managed to gather up more than 20000 followers on Instagram with his aerial shots.

He told the Manchester employee benefit scheme that he personally tend to fly the drone to a good height and frame the camera pointing directly down to the ground, almost like a flat lay. He feels this angle is the most interesting and unique and perspective to shoot from.

The Photographer of the Year champ George Karbus (of www.timhenselphotography.com) depicted his magical moment along with a surfing dolphin as a great lucky shot.

According to reports, he stated that the snap was taken in the most intimidating as well as surf heavy place on Coast of Northern Ireland.
