Dronestagram is a site where photography enthusiasts drone share and discuss their images. One type of images taken by drones that offers a very different pictures of life taken at street or taken at higher altitudes perspective, says the site manager, Eric Dupin:
“Photography of drones is a new photographic language and a new way to discover things and landscapes we know or think we know. Any other device can take pictures how are you”
A selection of which the BBC (ES) has published, ranging from the great work of Gaudí you see on the cover, Niagara Falls, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, or pictures of ordinary people in ordinary situations but taken at a height that provides a perspective fully different from the usual, Dupin explains.
“The drones photograph portrays a new version of the world. They are stunning images taken from a low altitude, very different from the images taken by satellite, airplane or helicopter, or on the other hand, images of street view”.
Appropriate legislation to allow international use but drones are becoming a phenomenon missing. Commercially, companies like Amazon want to use these aircraft for sending packets and darker aspects, there are drones flying halfway around the world and objectives of cyber espionage, in addition to the large investment in them in the defense industry.
