Now comes news of the first ever drone photography competition, publicised by Huffington Post as ‘Dronestagram photography’ which gives a drone’s eye view of Planet Earth.
The organisers claim that drone photography showcases beautiful aerial photography but also geographic data. Popular equipment included the DJI Phantom drone fitted with a GoPro Hero 3 camera.
More details are on the Dronetagram site.
