A Bird’s Eye View: Kite Aerial Photography
Posted By Andrea Weckerle On January 29, 2007 @ 2:35 pm In Art of Photography | 1 Comment
The last few times I’ve flown, I requested a window seat so I could photograph what was outside — sometimes the clouds, sometimes the rivers and fields, sometimes the skyscrapers below. Especially interesting was making the same cross-country trip during different seasons and comparing what the landscape looked like during summer and then during winter.
No doubt aerial photography is breathtaking because it offers a perspective that we don’t usually have access to — and maybe that’s precisely why we’re so drawn to it.
Nowadays, aerial photographs are often taken from an airplane or helicopter (satellite photography adds another dimension, which we’ll cover in a later post), but another type of photography that’s garnered adherents throughout history is kite aerial photography, or KAP.
To learn more about KAP, check out these resources: the blog and digital encyclopeadia of Kite Aerial Photography site,  the Kite Aerial Photography online index,  the Kite Aerial Photography forum,  the
KAP Wiki,  and the Flickr KAP group.
