    Chase Live Streaming

    So to live stream the past few years I have been using a GoPro Hero 9 connected to the GoPro iPhone app and a mobile Mi-Fi internet device that streams to FB Live or Twitch. It's alot of moving parts just to stream online and quite a pain in the ass to get going and stay connected. When I am...

    Chasing Etiquette

    After going out chasing a few times in my local area, I have noticed something. Finding a spot to stop and take photos / make reports / etc. without inconveniencing others and/or trespassing (stopping on a road alongside private property) is, well, awkward.

    Drones and their Role in Weather

    I've thought about this subject a lot recently, as drones will soon be as common as point-and-shoot cameras, and there's much to be discussed about them. For example: 1) How ethical is it to use drones to obtain tornado footage then sell it and claim it as your own, even if the drone was not on...
