Drones have been around for a long time, but it’s only in recent years that commercial ones have hit the market and increased in popularity. Photographers are putting down their traditional cameras and taking to the skies to take some truly awe-inspiring shots.
Aerial photography has helped change the world. What was one only a provenance of government is now something that civilians can use everyday. The first photography drone was invented in 1882, when an inventor pioneered a kite that had a timed explosive charge attached to it that triggered a camera. Now, drones are a million times more high-tech.
Using a drone is a wonderful way to explore things from a different angle regardless of if you’re a pro or an amateur – but it’s not exactly a cheap hobby. Drones can sell on sites like Amazon for thousands of dollars. Technology in this field is still advancing, so pictures like this are just the beginning.
