I decided a couple years ago that I would take some time off with my roommates to travel across the country. Since we were all recent college grads, our debts were high, and our combined income was low. We decided it would be best to pool our money together and rent a van for the ultimate road trip! Something fun and spontaneous to do before we all had to look for day jobs and start acting like ‘real’ adults.
Burning Man, Black Rock City
Our first stop was Burning Man in Black Rock City. If you’ve never heard of Black Rock City, its probably because it doesn’t really exist! Black Rock City only resurrects for the duration of the Burning Man festival in Black Rock, Nevada. This is unlike any other music festival out there! Thousands of people gather in the middle of the desert with a literal massive burning man. All the garbage that is brought to the festival is thrown into the fire. Not a single piece of trash is left after the crowds have gone their own way.
Unexpected Wedding Crashers!
Out of all the incredible photos I took, this one here is the one selfie that gained me 10k followers after being posted for only 20 minutes.
Can you figure out how I took this picture? Take a closer look at what I’m holding in my hands. Do you see it? It’s my phone being used as a controller. The device that took this amazing picture is the AltusCam HD drone. I like to call it the ‘selfie drone’ because that’s what it does! It takes perfect selfies every time!
The AltusCam HD Is Incredibly Easy To Use
The first time I used the AltusCam HD drone, I’ll be honest, it flew straight into a wall. I’m not too good with anything that functions with a controller (except for a television). But when I picked it up, the drone was completely fine! Perfect for me, since I knew there may be more crashes to come. But after five minutes, I was comfortably flying the drone and taking pictures at all heights and angles. This was awesome! I could finally take amazing pictures without having to carry around the heavy equipment. The quality of the camera is just as good as the new iPhone, but unlike the iPhone, I can take incredible pictures in the air! I can even get footage that even GoPro’s can’t. I have hundreds of photos and videos that capture a bird’s eye view of breathtaking scenery and group shots with everyone in them (for once)!
If you’re like me, you’ll appreciate these other easy-to-use features:
- Gravity control, so you can steady the drone for a perfect picture
- Real-time views sent right to your phone
- Free app for easy access and even easier control
- Wi-Fi app control
- Adjustable speed levels
- One-key take-off and landing
- Flight path control
- Voice controls
Along with its portable, compact, lightweight design, you can fold in the blades, keep it in your pocket, and always be ready to capture any special moment. I get amazing aerial photography from crazy heights and the hover mode is pure genius! The pictures come out looking professional every single time. You would have no idea I’m just an amateur blogger.
