Vindur: Icelandic Landscapes

Vindur: Icelandic Landscapes

Sigh, drones. They are pretty (very) pricey, fragile but they can give you the best vantage point of areas/perspectives that you can’t never ever be reached other than being riding a helicopter or flying like Superman. On the other hand, flying a drone in a very particular place and environment like Iceland; can really take your drone game to a whole new level. Let’s take a look at the work from Vadim Sherbakov and his aerial journey within the Icelandic Landscapes filled with waterfalls, valleys, mountains, landscapes, oceanic cliffs, old glacier, and many other magnificent wonders. As we are planning our trip to Iceland in less than a month, this is definitely inspiring and breathtaking. Vindur is a non-narrative short film shoot with drone in different parts of Iceland. Vindur means wind in Icelandic which is relevant to the way its shoot. So for 3 minutes you will get to enjoy amazing drone footage portraying Icelandic unbelievable landscapes. Beautiful waterfalls, endless valleys, unusual mountain ranges, out of this world landscapes, oceanic cliffs, old glacier, fantastic canyon and many other wonders that makes Iceland so unique and such a blast to shoot using DJI Phantom 3 professional.   More information: http://www.madebyvadim.com

Aerial Iceland

Aerial Iceland

We are finally letting go our temptation and we are planning our first trip to Iceland. This Icelandic Island located near the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean with a population a little low as about 330K to cover its whole island. This country is recently getting a lot more attention and visitors during the last few years. For those who doesn't know Iceland is volcanically and geologically still active which makes things a little scary and exciting at the same time. I'll make sure to take pictures and share it on Abduzeedo. By the meantime, let's follow Martinet Sarah's journey to Iceland with her breathtaking pictures taking from a plane with open windows. We can't help to be amazed by the landscape especially at this perspective that totally reminds me of a painting. The full series os my aerial images in souht Iceland taken in a plane with open windows during summer 2014. Þórsmörk, Landmannalaugar, Langisjór, Seljalandfoss, Vatnajökull, Landmannalaugar,Tungnaá river, Maelifellssandur, Granifjallgardur, Torfajökull.   More information: http://sarah-martinet-photographe.fr.

From Above: Formentera Island, Spain

From Above: Formentera Island, Spain

I wasn't really interested in drones until the DJI Phantom 4 came out with so many incredible features, basically that thing can fly by itself. I mean how cool is that! Other than taking 4K videos of our boring neighborhoods/backyards, let's admit that it's kind of hard getting those beautiful aerial footages other than living in a vacation destination. I am talking about my sake, mostly. I guess it will revert back to what I also do love about drones is that you can reach a perspective that mostly we just can't reach. Makes you feel that you are flying like Superman, not trying to be cheesy but it's kind of awesome. The exercise of visually conceptualizing your shots before you take your drone up. We are taking a closer look at this photo series by Dimitar Karanikolov taken from Formentera Island located in Spain. The main island of Formentera is located near south of Ibiza in the Mediterranean Sea. We just can't help to notice the colours of the water and the different/stunning shapes of the Island.

Drone Photography with Dirk Dallas

Drone Photography with Dirk Dallas

I feel we are still in the state of novelty while talking about  Drone Photography. Why? There's isn't that much of it out there yet, I might be wrong but this is my thought. I also a great fan of those who pushes the limits of this tool/hardware to capture different angles and perspective rarely seeing before. It's a totally different vision and we can't help to be inspired by it. We would love to share this might be our first feature on Drone Photography and let's take a look at Dirk Dallas's perspective of the World. I have been shooting at eye-level for years. I needed a new challenge. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); About Dirk Dallas Dirk is a designer, photographer and educator living in Southern California, USA.

Gorgeous Aerial Photography by Tom Blachford

Gorgeous Aerial Photography by Tom Blachford

It's really nice to see life from other perspectives. One of the most fantastic and contemplative in my opinion is seeing things from above. People become ants and we get the feeling that we are all tiny beings in a big place. Suddenly our mundane problems are not that big anymore. These pictures by Australian photographer Tom Blachford are simply gorgeous, capturing ordinary life moments from a whole other level. In some way, it even reminds me a lot of simulator games, such as Sim City. Awesome! For more of Tom's pieces, please visit his portfolio at Behance. He'll definitely enjoy it. Cheers! ;)
