Drones, Drones, Drones!

For all drone fans and others who appreciate aerial photography, there is a recent award-winning book and associated website you might want to check out. I recently reviewed their book, Dronescapes, in THE PHOTOBOOK JOURNAL; you can read my review there. The website (Dronestagram) accepts submissions from around the world.

Particularly interesting about this volume are the subject areas, corresponding with chapters of the book, with the following titles:  Drones Are Us (playful, humorous); Close (unusual angles); Urban; Fauna (animals); Probe (environment); Space; Pattern/Shadow (images emphasizing composition and seen as more artistic rather than straight-forward); Move (sports and leisure); and I Do (wedding photography). The editor, Ayperi Karabuda Ecer, also does a good job of highlighting the background of a number of photographers who use these quadcopters in their photographic pursuits.

You should also note that the editor of the book provides a short section of helpful hints for using drones, in addition to all the inspiring ideas and more than 250 images. Plus, each image is marked by the latitude, longitude, and ALTITUDE of the drone at the time of exposure. This gives all drone photographers and videographers ideas about placement and angles for their own work.

Hope this helps those of you fascinated by this new way of seeing the world from above!
