Drones have brought an extraordinary revolution in photography and shown here are the best images captured in 2017.
Drone photography is changing the way we view the world. The opportunity to see the world from above gives us a metamorphic experience where a circus suddenly looks like a box of sweets, a leafless tree transforms into a spider web, or a desert turns into a pastel painting. We rarely get the chance to turn our perspective upside down but the aerial photographers deliver us a whole feast of colors, texture and outstanding beauty we can never appreciate from down here.
The Dronestagram community is the perfect site online to see such artistic shots of landscapes. It probably holds the largest collection of aerial photos submitted by drone lovers worldwide. The site allows both professional and hobby photographers to share their captures in one place so others can see their works and get inspiration from them.
The days of DSLR camera photography is slowly passing by. While this flying equipment was initially utilized in a few selected industries like filmmaking or the military, the availability of more affordable and easy-to-use drones made conventionalists switch to aerial photography. In fact, drone makers are already equipping their products with top-quality cameras that can compete with DSLRs. What makes these cameras pretty special, though, is the bird’s eye perspective that makes landscapes look larger and longer without the need of building higher platforms. Also, their ability to have a closer look on the ground than a helicopter has been dubbed “revolutionary.”
