Gazing out of a plane window, the world below never gets old. There’s an inherent beauty and fascination in seeing things from a different perspective, which is probably why DIY drone photography has taken off. After all, drones can go where humans can’t, and in this way, they’ve opened up a new way of looking at both the practice of photography and the world around us.
As technology prices drop, access to more gadgets increases. While once just for tech-heads, you can now pick up an entry-level drone fitted with a camera from less than $200. But just because you can walk into a shop and buy one, doesn’t mean you’ll automatically be able to achieve great shots. Like all artforms, there’s skill and creativity required.
