Getting Into Drone Photography
Drones are a hot topic in the photography world today. And it’s no surprise. Drones enable us to see the world from completely new perspectives and open the door to all sorts of creative possibilities. In the last year we’ve seen major advances in drone technology making them easier and safer to fly. The cameras they carry have improved too, enabling them to capture RAW, HDR, 4k video and more.
