In order to capture a subject at a greater elevation, photographers traditionally had to either deal with the pictures taken from an airplane or a hot balloon, or simply resign themselves to the ground. However, with the invention of drones, a whole new perspective could be taken.

“Drones change all that, although at first, some of the systems were more complicated and less powerful than needed to be worth the effort. Early drones (by which I mean drones of just a few years ago) featured low-resolution, action cam-quality cameras and control systems that often lead to YouTube-worthy crash footage. Competition for dominance of the multi-rotor drone space has resulted in huge technological leaps at both the consumer and professional level. The footage coming from some of today’s best models is often used in television and cinema production.”

As drones are further developed, newer and better technologies will be added, and even wider perspective on photography itself will be able to be explored.
