Went to work on a Sunday for some more beginner drone flight practice (and in the marsh just north of work).  

I've obviously got a lot of flying skill yet to learn before I begin thinking about taking real photos.  Just trying put more flights under my belt to gain confidence for now.

Revelation of the day: I needed to invert the stick that controls altitude. My brain is just too used to pulling back to go up.

I don't care about video, or doing stunts or tricks but I realized a drone is basically just a camera that you can put places you normally can't.

I'm curious about using them for fine art still photography. Most take stills too. Until I feel confident I'm playing with one with a low res camera (but which won't give me a heart attack if I fly it into the bay).

Not many people use them this way so not much out there in terms of tips.

So far I'm impressed by the stability & control, both vital for shooting stills obviously.

Here's a test pic from my very cautious flight #1.

When are you two going to have an exhibit? You are too good not to have a wider audience.

Whelp. It's my turn to make a career sacrifice for my wife for a change. Gotta move back to NYC. 

The NY Google office is great but the stuff going on there no longer lines up with my interests so...

I'll be leaving Google soon.  

No idea what my post-google chapter will be. 

What should I do next? Anybody got any ideas? :)

I'm a little late to this thread, but I just found out that the roasted peanuts street vendors don't offer wifi. Back when a small startup company called Starbucks put wifi in their "cafes", they tripled their marketshare over night. Just saying. Plus, the ROI on hot nuts has always been exceptional.

I know some people get drones as a kind of glorified "selfie stick" which seems really dumb to me.

But i have to admit that when the lil guy's coming back from a successful sortie it's kind of hard not to wave & welcome it home.

Welcome back little buddy. Good job out there.

Played around some more tonight with in-game GTA V photography. It's fun but actually kind of tricky in unique ways.

Yeah. It looks great when the lighting is great. Too embarrassing to say how long I sat on the roach infested floor of Trevor's kitchen waiting for it. :)

Also these got some love in Lightroom
