It is the fifth time of Dronestagram Photo Contest and winners have already announced. The completion is all about capturing the moments of the planet from a unique perspective. This competition attracts thousands of entries throughout the world and selects the best drone photography.

Hungry Hippos by zekedrone was the first prize winner in this competition. He has taken photographs which are bloat of hippos hanging out happily together in muddy water.

“We were 6 of us to work out the best photos,” Eric from Dronestagram mentioned in Bored Panda. “It wasn’t easy because we received several thousands of them so you have to be very organized to choose the best ones.”

“A good drone picture must have a strong verticality and also show scenes close up, from a view that can only be taken by a Drone. Then it must be artistic in its approach and style and if possible show life with humans or animals.” If you have any idea connecting with this booming genre of photography, you need to be very careful with the local rules and regulations about flying drones in the area.

Eric would like to share some advice for beginners in drone photography. “First learn to fly a drone and master it perfectly before moving on to shooting,” “You can learn and train with a small and robust $50 drone, then once you know how to fly it, invest in a good camera drone. Try to fly in the countryside, and respect the local rules and laws!”
