As a photographer I try to surround myself with people who know more than me.

Im a drummer who used to do photography a long time ago. In the last ten years or so I have taken an interest in photography again. If you are getting back into photography, or just starting I assure you that classes and lectures will be a fun and interesting pursuit. Wonderful things happen when a room full of photographers (with varied skill sets) get together. And of course the worse photographer gets the most benefit.

Personal drones no longer need to be registered with FAA, US federal court rules

I just read this article “Personal drones no longer need to be registered with FAA, US federal court rules”  And let me first say that I am a novice drone enthusiast.   My thoughts after reading this article are, alright now you do not have to register drones if you are a enthusiast. Well I already registered so what happened to my money and my rights? Second DJI is releasing a version of their flight software that will (at the very least) control altitude and flight radius if you don’t register with them? So the FAA (reluctantly) lets go of some control and DJI takes it back plus some.

Confusion seems to be the rule of all things drone related. and I find confusion in this ruling and further confusion relating to some upcoming as of this writing DJI go apps.

I am devastated by the loss of Allan Holdsworth. He forced me to think about how far an artist can push his or her art. Thank you Allan for enriching my personal view of how vast and wonderful art can be.
