Digital SLR Photography - - Snapshots -

T he pop­u­lar­ity of con­sumer drone pho­tog­ra­phy is fly­ing high. putting aside the on- go­ing dis­pute about how to reg­u­late drones, the win­ners of the fourth an­nual in­ter­na­tional Drone pho­tog­ra­phy Con­test, run by aerial so­cial net­work Dron­esta­gram, are proof that this fresh top- down per­spec­tive on the world can un­veil some in­cred­i­ble im­ages in the hands of tal­ented pho­tog­ra­phers.

the con­test, con­ducted in con­junc­tion with Na­tional Ge­o­graphic, at­tracted over 8,000 aerial im­ages, and was split into four cat­e­gories – Na­ture, peo­ple, ur­ban and, for the first time in the con­test’s his­tory, a cat­e­gory cel­e­brat­ing Cre­ativ­ity. from lush laven­der fields to work­ers clean­ing win­dows thousands of feet in air, cre­ative forced-per­spec­tive crafts­man­ship and beau­ti­ful land­scapes, the abil­ity to po­si­tion a cam­era al­most any­where in the sky opens up a whole new world of cre­ative pos­si­bil­i­ties.

Sadly, we’ve not the space to show you all of the win­ning im­ages in full glory, so head to www. dron­estagr. am to see them for your­self, and for in­for­ma­tion on next year’s awards.
