In the past, aerial photography had to be shot from manned aircraft. The hugely expanding field of Unmanned Aerial Systems (or drones) has opened up new opportunities for aerial photographers. Drones can make citizens feel like masters of the sky while the FAA scrambles to keep up with regulating unmanned aircraft. Take a close look at these gadgets, how they work, why they are in such demand, and why safety is so important yet so often overlooked. We will discuss the process of flying the drone, operating the camera, downloading the footage and editing it. Weather permitting, a flight demo will be included.
