Adventures in Large Format Photography (Part 2): The Results

In my last article, Adventures in Large Format: A Beginner's Perspective, I talked about some of the things I noticed upon purchasing and attempting to use my first 4x5 large format camera. As fun as fiddling with some knobs and taking a photo of a stool was, it was time for me to point my camera at some actual people.

GoPro Records Woman Stealing Drone and Falsely Claiming It 'Almost Killed' Her

A first-person view (FPV) drone operator recently crashed his drone in a park where he had permission to fly.

My Gear and How I Use It to Affect Emotion

Photography is a game of emotions. Think about some of the most powerful images that you’ve ever seen. The ones that have left a lasting impression on you.

Quick Steps for Shooting a 360-Degree Aerial Panorama Photo With a Drone

One of my favorite things to do is fly my drone around Indonesia and share photos and videos of my country's natural beauty. When I flew my first DJI Phantom back in 2013, I realized the incredible opportunity drones gave to capture that beauty from a unique perspective.
