Hey Everyone

How’s it going?

Today I thought I’d kick the week off by sharing a video my friend Colin Smith of Photoshop Cafe, posted online recently.

Colin is an authority in the world of drones such as the DJI Phantom which is incredibly popular amongst everyday enthusiasts and photographers, and in this video shows the simple set up and gives pointers for a successful flight and capturing the best shots…

The only problem now though having watched the video a number of times is that I now want one of my own 🙂

So do you have one of these drones? Not necessarily a DJI Phantom, but a drone of any kind and what you’re  using it for. In particular if you use it for photography and have images online please do post a link; I’d love to see what you’ve done.

In the mean time I highly recommend you check out more from Colin as he not only teaches classes at Photoshop World on the technical and practical uses and how to fly these drones but also has countless videos covering reviews and tutorials.

Ok that’s all from me so have a great week and I’ll see you next time.
Enjoy,
Glyn

    Morning Glyn,

    Been using similar system for around 12 months now, mine is based on the DJI Phantom 2 using a GoPro on a gimbal for capturing the footage/images.

    Yet to do the required licence for commercial work so quite restricted in where/what I can shoot at present, like the challenge though of finding suitable locations.

    Love the possibilities it opens up for photography, capturing viewpoints of a location that just a short while back would have been impossible or prohibitively expensive.

    Would definitely recommend adding one to the kitbag, admittedly not the best quality images unless you are prepared to spend upwards of £4k for a rig that will lift something more substantial than a GoPro, but good fun nonetheless.

    Few things I’ve shot with mine here, including some scrollable 360 degrees panoramas – http://www.jamesfarley.co.uk/category/aerial/

    You should take the plunge and get one, you will love the way you can look at the world from a new view. As a kid, the only superpower I ever desired was the ability to fly. I can now live vicariously through my quadcopter 🙂
