Special Feature: Soar High with Drone Photography


Drone photography has become popular and one of the exciting developments at this time is the use of drones in capturing unique images and perspectives of various subjects. The technological advances and affordable cost of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or drones) and quality of on-board cameras helped their growing popularity and usage.

Regardless of how much they are being used for recreation and other purposes, the fears associated with drones are always there. Before flying a drone in your area, you need to know the proper guidelines and you should be an expert controller. A small mistake could cause big accidents.

Here are some awesome ways drones are being used today.

Capturing live events. Drones are being commonly used these days to capture addresses by politicians, concerts, and live sports events. They can provide a perspective to the audience that no other technology can provide.

Surveying dangerous areas. With drones, it is now possible to have a much closer look at places that are not easily accessible for human beings. These drones can go into these places and provide footage so humans can later visit with knowledge of what to expect in these remote areas.

Delivery of small items. Drones are being used by many big companies for the delivery of products to customers. Think about pizza chains sending pizzas to their customers using drones.

 Law enforcement. Aside from surveying areas where terrorists are hiding, drones can also be used to identify the locations of criminals and the right plan of action if criminals are holding hostages. In fact, drones used by police can also shoot if the need arises.

 Shooting great commercials and movies. Most sci-fi and action movies require aerial shots. Hiring a helicopter and shooting on it can be annoying and expensive. With drones, you don’t have to go through that hassle or disruption. Using expert drone controllers means clean footage that is exactly what the director wants.

 Keeping an eye on wildlife. With the rising numbers of threatened and endangered wildlife populations, human interest in conservation and protection is growing. There is now a better way for these organizations to keep an eye on wildlife without disturbing the peace. Drones have provided a way for these organizations to do their jobs without hurting the animals they are trying to save.
