7 Habits of a Great Drone Photographer

7 Habits of a Great Drone Photographer 1

Photography has come a long way since the dawn of the first camera.

For one, producing and saving photos are now a lot easier—from the arduous film and chemical process first introduced in 1839, photographers can now use electronic chips to replicate and store digital photos on their computer in seconds.

And unlike before, there are countless ways to take stunning, high-quality aerial shots. Camera drones—semi-portable flying machines with a built-in camera—for instance, make it possible to take photos and videos from the sky.

Drones allow photographers to shoot from unconventional angles and perspectives. And this means that photographers, for example, no longer need to get up close and personal to achieve the perfect shot. Embracing the potential of drone photography and videography can help you see your subject from a new perspective. On top of that, you’ll get to fly a drone, which feels like playing a real-life video game.

More Airspace for U.S. Recreational Drone Pilots Allowed Using ‘LAANC’


There was some big, game-changing drone news recently announced by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)!

Recreational drone pilots (those who are flying their drones for fun) can now access the FAA’s LAANC (Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability) system. This is the same system that Part 107 drone pilots use to request automated airspace authorizations to fly in controlled airspace when they are doing commercial work (making money with their drone operations).

This is a big deal for US-based drone pilots. Up until now, recreational flyers weren’t legally allowed to fly in controlled airspace (which includes most urban areas), which means that much of the airspace has been off-limits to recreational flying. That has now changed.

Now, recreational users can use the free app I use, ‘AirMap for Drones’ to request and receive near-instant approval to fly in U.S. controlled airspace at many of the airports across the United States (over 591 airports as of right now). This means a LOT more of the sky just opened up for you to legally fly in!

Recreational flyers in the United States can now request access to operate their drones in controlled airspace where airports are nearby, near their homes, parks, and other favorite places to fly that used to be restricted. Read More
