Make sure that you are aware of your Drone’s wind speed limits and remember that wind speed increases with height. Keep an eye on the weather forecast 24hrs before you plan a flight and a good tool to have is a hand held Anemometer which will give you the wind speed at ground.
There is lots of useful and fairly accurate weather apps, look out for what it is saying for the Gusts
If you are a first time user of a Drone for aerial photography or video make sure that you are operating it legally, the airspace in Ireland is controlled by the Irish Aviation Authority, so before you use your Drone go onto the IAA website and read the rules and regulations for flying your Drone safely.
Now that people had figured out how to successfully capture images, cameras began evolving rapidly. In 1859, Thomas Sutton received a patent for the first-ever panoramic camera. Built using a wide-angle lens consisting of a water-filled glass sphere.
The camera obscura was invented to help artists draw
Camera obscura (meaning “dark room” in Latin) is a box-shaped device used as an aid for drawing or entertainment. Also referred to as a pinhole image, it lets light in through a small opening on one side and projects a reversed and inverted image on the other
It then led to those who were not so good at drawing looking into ways of keeping the scene permanently on a medium such as a tin plate or glass.
As a result of experiments by various people throughout the 18th & 19th centuries photography was born
Invented by Louis Daguerre and introduced worldwide in 1839,the daguerreotype was almost completely superseded by 1860 with new, less expensive processes (Ambrotype) yielding more readily viewable images. There was a revival of daguerreotype in the late 20th century by a small number of photographers interested in making artistic use of early photographic processes.
To make the image, a daguerreotypist would polish a sheet of silver-platedcopper to a mirror finish, treat it with fumes that made its surface light sensitive, expose it in a camera for as long as was judged to be necessary, which could be as little as a few seconds for brightly sunlit subjects or much longer with less intense lighting; make the resulting latent image on it visible by fuming it with mercury vapor; remove its sensitivity to light by liquid chemical treatment, rinse and dry it, then seal the easily marred result behind glass in a protective enclosure.
Photography studios then opened as people began to have their portraits taken and this was the start of the photography business as we know it today
Creating images whether by taking a photograph or shooting video is very subjective, there is no real right or wrong way to go about it, there is a thing called the rule of thirds but not every image is able to follow this rule, so if you like the look of the subject then go ahead and take it or shoot it and
then enjoy what you have created.
No one person discovered photography, it was born out of an early 19th century synthesis of physics and chemistry.
By 1900 it had developed to a state not so far short of Black and White photography.
The first chemically recorded image was by a Frenchman J. Nicephore Niepce in around 1813, he used chloride of silver coated on paper which he then left for several hours in a camera obscura which weakly recorded the image of a view from one of his windows.
