I live in a beautiful area and when the light and weather permit I feel I must takeoff and practice my aerial shooting. From the vantage point of 500 feet up, I get to see from a perspective that so many never can. To share these views, I grab my camera and try to capture what I see. However, it's not an easy as it would seem. Wind from the open window, vibration, and concentrating on low-level flight are all things to contend with while trying to get the shot. Additionally, there's the usual issue of deciding on aperture, shutter speed, ISO settings. Lens choice in another consideration. Too wide, and wing struts, landing gear, and the prop arc can interrupt the image as a distraction. Additionally, a wide lens makes the shot appear to have been taken from much higher that it actually was and some intimacy is lost. Too narrow, and the shot can become focused with the feeling of flight gone. In any case, it is fun and, as the saying goes: practice makes perfect.
Here are some examples from Friday's outing:
