Dronestagram ushers in a new phase in photography contests. There is something special about the International Photography contest conducted by this online photography community.
Dronestagram’s contest is especially for sharing drone photos, which have become a sensation.
Though drones may pose threats in certain places and situations, drone photography has its own merits despite the threats.
It is “a new photographic language” calls Eric Dupin, founder and chief executive of Dronestagram.
The French-based online community has successfully made a large number of followers from around the world in five years.
Dupin opines that drone photography depicts a new vision of the world. The photos taken from drones are different from photos taken from satellite, airplanes or helicopter. They look stunning.
“Drone photography has made it all different and more exploratory. It offers pictures in angles that we were not able to get earlier”, says Muhammed Shabil, a freelance photographer and a student of still photography and visual media in Jamia Millia Islami.
Nationally and internationally, several photography contests are held throughout the year to find out rare talents and honor them.
In India, contests from Nat Geo traveler, India Photography Awards, World photography organizations, Indian Photo fest are worth looking for.
Recently, Hyderabad was the host of Indian Photography Festival (IPF).
