Like Aerial Photography? Check out this Webinar on Using Drones

Photoshelter has some pretty sweet webinars relatively regularly, and this week they're hosting one on aerial photography: "How Eric Cheng Is Democratizing Aerial Photography." Eric Cheng spent over 10 years mastering underwater photography before deciding to try his hand at aerial videography. Now he’s already turning the industry on its head with a new innovation that allows photographers to capture above-ground footage without the massive expense of a helicopter.

Join Photoshelter and Eric Cheng on Wednesday Oct. 16th, 4pm ET to learn:

How Eric got into aerial photography
FAA rules and regulations you should watch out for (this is a big-un)
How to create your own drone videography on a low, medium or high budget
His plans for future projects

This is going to be really useful for those of you who are either confused or unfamiliar with the rules of using drones (I don't blame you, there is a lot of conflicting chatter on the internet about it). Head over to Photoshelter to register!

I need some advice on that Drone acquire, for filming and professional photography, I would like to get in touch with any of you can guide me, I would appreciate it greatly.

Drones are fun, but I operate Helicopter mounted camera systems for a living. In my personal opinion you just cant beat the quality you'll get from filming from a helicopter with an experienced Pilot and operator team behind the controls.

I've got the Dji Phantom but can't seem to get images that are high enough res to print at high quality. I'm guessing this is as it only shoots at 72Dpi (I have the same issue with the GoPro). Does anyone have any ideas how I can get around this?
