The last two years, since I have a drone, I follow various groups on Facebook and Internet sites , where photographs are published, made with drones.
My opinion relates exclusively to drone photography !!
99,925 % people, who buy a drone today, have no clue about photography and buy it, because it is currently popular to own a drone. :)
In doing so, however, most of them forget, that without knowledge of framing and the behavior of light for the purposes of photography, the drone and its bird's eye view in most cases will not produce better photograph.
Now some of you will say: “You can also learn this with a drone. ” True, but in my opinion it is much easier to master the basics of photography on a handheld camera, than to do it in the air, where you still have to make sure you fly safely.
My story with the drone began in the fall 2017 at a photography workshop in the Czech Republic, where I saw live what it looks like to fly a drone. I immediately started having ideas of where I could use it for aerial photography at my locations.
After good consideration, I bought it spring of 2018.
So I recommend buying or better yet testing the drone to a more advanced photographers, who know the basics of photography as well as its post processing. Drone sensors and cameras are not yet at the level of more modern hand held cameras and photo processing is required for better end results..
Finally, a few examples of ground and aerial photographs of some places.
