Unlocking the third dimension

Drones have come to stay, and that’s a fact. And thanks to them, I have discovered another way of immortalising unique moments from a different perspective.

Summary

When talking about photography, we always perceive it as a frame that reflexes whatever the lenses of the camera we are using capture, and although it doesn’t matter the point of view of the subject taking the picture, they tend to always reflect the same flat feeling, given that the photographer is always in the same plane as a walking person.

Going where no one goes

It is possible to be in places in another way than walking into them. I'm talking about the fact that having a drone has enabled us to take pictures of places where we haven’t been.

A new perspective

Having a new dimension to play around gives us more points of view from where to immortalise scenes and moments, new tools to create memories and a different way of approach how to share the world that surrounds us.

Exploring the limits of creativity

Having this new dimension to play with also gave me the opportunity of seeing things from a perspective more abstract that, together with the shapes that surround us and the architecture can help find details in places where by walk or car they don’t seem special to the normal eye.

Understanding the power

Having the freedom to go fly anywhere and taking pictures of beautiful locations comes with a responsibility, you need to always respect the environment and other people, be careful with the way you treat your surroundings when taking pictures.

Conclusions

Getting a drone has been one of the best decisions I’ve taken in the past months. Not only as a tool to enhance my creativity, but also something that enables me to document my journey.


Did you like some of the pictures in this post?

I recently opened a shop page on Society6 where you can purchase all kind of items with my artwork on it. From framed art to posters and even include it on wall clocks or even on notebooks or iPhone cases. I make a little profit from it but I would enjoy someone having my stuff hanging on his wall.
