Aerial Photography Re-imagined

Laurie says:

I’m back from Detroit and the Sojourner Truth archive in Battle Creek.  I’ll have a lot to say about this next week.  But I want to think about it for a while.

This post is about drones used for a new kind of aerial photography.  They have a far closer range and different perspectives then a small plane.  Like any vision opportunity the importance is the quality the work.  The tech only provides the tools.

BBC:   The arrival of cheap drone technology – and small, light high-quality cameras – has given rise to a new genre of beautiful aerial photography and film-making.

A new competition, sponsored by National Geographic (and Dronestagram), has highlighted some stunning examples of drone photographs taken in the past year.

The winner of the competition was a stunning view of an eagle soaring high above a national park in Indonesia.

I really like the three photos above, but I’m not knocked out by that many of the photographs I saw.  But the potential is fabulous.
