On November 15, 2022, Lancaster Photography Association is excited to have Pete Scifres speak to us about Drone Photography. Join us at the Antelope Valley Senior Center for this presentation.
Pete will cover why making images from drones is fun and can often produce compelling "looks" impossible to achieve from the ground. He will go over some current popular models, how to fly them, and laws that users must follow. He will bring a DJI Air 2S drone and show some of its features.
