Kite Aerial Photography

Do any of you have any experience with kite photography?

I doubt I'll ever get around to trying it, but it seems like a great hobby. And definitely a good conversation piece:

"What do you do?"
"I use kites to take pictures from hundreds of feet in the air"

If you have any kite photography tips or tricks that you want to share, please leave them in the comments. And if you're a fan of aerial photography (kites or otherwise) and have a favorite (or 10), toss some links to them in a comment so we can all check them out. 🙂

If you like this picture check out the book Hanging by a Thread: A Kite's View of Wisconsin by the same photographer. Unfortunately Amazon doesn't have a preview of any of the images in the book, but you can see the cover image, which is an incredible aerial view of the Wisconsin State Capitol.

    Nice. And flickr scrolls FOREVER now, making skimming through and finding cool pictures even easier.

    I wonder if aerial kite photography is on the decline now that the quad/hexcopter market seems to be exploding.

    Yeah, flickr has really improved recently. Instagram users should really give it a try. When posting photos to flickr, they don't become vaporware like on instagram.

    Aerial kite photography is kinda like film. Old school.
