​3 Technologies That Are Revolutionizing Photography

Photography as we know it has been around for nearly 200 years, but there has arguably never been as much innovation in the industry as there is now, thanks to the massive explosion of technology over the last decade-plus or so.

Things that are possible in the photography space today would be unthinkable to people even only a few decades ago. With that in mind, thisarticle will take a closer look at three different technologies


Drones have been around for quite a while in some capacity, but they have exploded in popularity among the mainstream public over the last few years. In fact, there have been millions and millions of personal drones sold worldwide, a number which is only expected to grow in the future.

While drones are a fun toy, they are much more than a novelty. You can get photos and videos from angles and heights that were simply never possible for most people. In addition to controlling these drones on your own, many allow you to set predetermined routes or even follow you around, all while getting crisp photos or video.

Drones are great for hobby photography, but are also revolutionizing things like event photography, weddings, real estate and more. As the months and years go by, look for drones to likely continue to get better and better. They will likely get more affordable, get more advanced features and become more intuitive for users.


Photogrammetry is the science of making measurements from photographs. It is great at measuring the distance between two points, so it is ideal for mapping and other types of ground-based surveying.

While this technology isn’t brand new, it has had a “boom” in terms of popularity thanks to the availability of drones and because of products like PhotoModeler. The product allows for the extraction of 3D models and measurements from photos, in a cost-effective manner.

However, this photogrammetry software can be used for other things such as helping you measure the correct size and dimensions for stairs in your home, as well as kitchen, bathroom or other home remodelling jobs. So it not only has large-scale usage, but could also be beneficial to the everyday consumer as well.

Mobile Cameras and Accessories

Sometimes, the best camera is the one you have with you, and that is most often the one on your phone. Not only are the actual cameras and sensors in our phones getting better seemingly every year, but so are the accessories that go along with them.

There are dozens of external lenses, brackets and flashes that can be affordably purchased, that will take your cell phone photography to the next level. In addition to phone cameras and accessories for them getting more robust, plentiful and useful, but companies are also coming out with smaller, more powerful cameras like the Light L16, which features 16 lenses and sensors, but can fit in your pocket.

In conclusion, technologies like the three mentioned have changed the way we think about photography and allow us to do some pretty cool things compared to even a couple of years ago. And with how quickly technology will likely continue to be innovated, don’t be shocked to see new technologies emerge in the not too distant future, as well.
