Aerial photographers: This clever map will help you steer clear of no-drone zones


 
 

The rise of affordable multicopters and radio-controlled aircraft with built-in cameras (or support for mounting your own) has brought aerial photography within reach of the masses, but it's proven to be a thorny issue where the US government is concerned.

There are a couple of awesome photographic disciplines, but being a concert photographer probably tops them all.

Learn how to use HDR to create natural looking photos in this B&H educational video

This leads to a loss of detail either in the...

Nikon has stuck to its guns,...
