Trying out the DJI Mavic Air, this is so awesome, very happy to have a new side to my photography hobby. The Mavic Air has a lot of one-touch functions that will make you look like a pro. Can’t wait to share a lot more photos and short videos of me flying around the world.

Learning how to fly over Downtown Orlando, Florida for the very first time pic #2

Here are just 2 photos from my very first flight around downtown, getting a drone with a great camera is an amazing way to fly.

 

Aerial Photography – as per wikipida.org

Aerial photography is the taking of photographs from an aircraft or other flying object.[1] Platforms for aerial photography include fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or “drones”), balloons, blimps and dirigibles, rockets, pigeons, kites, parachutes, stand-alone telescoping and vehicle-mounted poles. Mounted cameras may be triggered remotely or automatically; hand-held photographs may be taken by a photographer.

Aerial photography should not be confused with air-to-air photography, where one or more aircraft are used as chase planes that “chase” and photograph other aircraft in flight.

But if you haven’t explored more then just a few how do you know that this is the one for you. So that I say let’s explore more than just a few photography genres and see which we love the mores. For the new few months, I will be exploring Aerial Photography. To help me with that I’ve purchased the new DJI Mavic Air and will be sharing new photos here and on my Instagram account very soon. Which will you explore?

How Your Camera Works


This is an amazing slow-motion video that will show you just how your digital or film camera works. Not much for me to explain the video will show you all you need to know. I’ve loved photography for many years now, and the more I learn of how it works the cooler I think it is. Check this out and then check out the Slow Mo Guys on YouTube they have many other awesome videos.

Digital Double Exposure

This is my very first time playing around with double exposure, these were done using Snapseed on my android pixel. I’ve taken a whole lot of photo as a hobby but yet I’ve never done any kind of double exposure digital or otherwise. These were several photos I shot this week where the sunset and the street lights kind of matched so when they come together they make something awesome to my eyes, I love these double exposures so much I think I might start creating more of them in Lightroom with my some of my older photos. myfotolife.com/double-exposure

What is Art ?

What is Art?  Wikipedia Art –

Art is a diverse range of human activities in creating visual, auditory or performing artifacts (artworks), expressing the author’s imaginative or technical skill, intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power.[1][2] In their most general form these activities include the production of works of art, the criticism of art, the study of the history of art, and the aesthetic dissemination of art.

The oldest documented forms of art are visual arts, which include creation of images or objects in fields including today painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and other visual media.

Architecture is often included as one of the visual arts; however, like the decorative arts, or advertising,[3] it involves the creation of objects where the practical considerations of use are essential—in a way that they usually are not in a painting, for example.

Music, theatre, film, dance, and other performing arts, as well as literature and other media such as interactive media, are included in a broader definition of art or the arts.[1][4] Until the 17th century, art referred to any skill or mastery and was not differentiated from crafts or sciences.

In modern usage after the 17th century, where aesthetic considerations are paramount, the fine arts are separated and distinguished from acquired skills in general, such as the decorative or applied arts.
