- Photographers can navigate these challenges and create breathtaking photographs that capture a unique perspective of the world.
Drone photography involves capturing aerial images or videos using an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) equipped with a camera.
Drones allow photographers to capture unique perspectives and angles that are difficult or impossible to achieve with traditional photography methods.
Drone photography has become increasingly popular in recent years, and it is commonly used in a variety of fields such as real estate, surveying, cinematography, and more.
There are a few challenges that the drone photography field and its pilots face.
Drone photography is subject to many regulations, including restrictions on where drones can be flown and what kind of equipment they can use.
In, Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA), is responsible for issuing licenses and permits for drone operations, and for enforcing the regulations governing the use of drones.
Drones can pose a safety risk to people and property, especially if they are flown in crowded or busy areas. Drone photographers need to be aware of their surroundings and take steps to ensure the safety of themselves and others.
These devices often make people uneasy especially when being flown around residential and corporate areas.
Since people often associate them with spying and surveillance, this raises privacy concerns. Hence flying is strictly prohibited in some areas.
These devices can be expensive, especially if they are equipped with high-quality cameras and other equipment.
Drone photographers may need to invest a significant amount of money in their equipment, which can be a barrier to entry for some.
Due to high licensing fees, acquiring a drone pilot license in Kenya can be a quite taxing affair when it comes to finances.
In conclusion, drone photography presents many unique challenges that photographers must overcome, however, with proper planning, preparation, and practice, photographers can navigate these challenges and create breathtaking photographs that capture a unique perspective of the world.
