Born as a human and enslaved to forever walk the Earth, our curiosity and imagination for the bird-eye view, looking at the beautiful world from up above in a different light had never been vanquished before, even after hoping into a plane or skydiving from thousands of feet above. But now with the advent of drone photography, even though we still cannot experience the beauty of the world from up above in a first hand version but can definitely see how extremely fabulous things look from a height only imaginable to the aerial species with the help of our drone lenses which many would love to call their ‘digital eyes’. Drone photography, still a less known and practiced art of photography, started to get a lot of attention in the past couple of years and definitely ranks among the list of best things that 2014 gave us.
Also known as “Aerial view Photography” or “Bird’s-eye view Photography”, this new art form had a lot of talented heads rolling around the world over the short span of a few years. Being unique in its own rights as it is, what makes the drone photography such an alluring attraction is the simple fact how it can present philosophy and art entwined together in one single snap. It makes you wonder how small and ridiculously insignificant our affairs and problems can be in a larger scale where even the biggest mansions of our achievements is just another speck on the landscape; such a broad perspective can definitely be unnerving sometimes but makes our lives a lot easier and simpler to look at. All of your neighborhood and your known streets, even you entire city can look like a pretty confused maze with all its dazzling lights and skyscrapers.
Just like any other form of art, its prosperity lies in the concept of sharing its grandeur with all its patrons. Dronestagram is today’s one of the most talked about websites in the realms of photography that allows people from all over the world to share, upload, and exhibit their snaps and this closely knit community of talented individuals with the passion of looking at things differently is growing by the minute.
