Kite Aerial Photography

Last evening, Diane and I made our first attempt at shooting images from somewhere above ground-level and below the clouds.  We hoisted a GoPro Hero camera over our friend Jeff’s place in the desert, just to see how viable this method really is.  The results were horrible, but the concept was proven sound.  We can do this.  The next time will be better.

Thinking ahead, this is going to put an entirely new perspective on our photography of the islands.  Our rig will consist of a Brooxes mount, with our Canon G-10 lofting into the blue Caribbean sky.  Yep, it is going to be wonderful.

These are the things that keep me going while we wait to head south.  In the midst of all of the turmoil, I can take my mind out of the chaos and let it float over the waves, dangling from a kite… and relax.
