Breathtaking Examples of Aerial Photography

Aerial photography is a technique of taking photography from the sky or air. In aerial photography, anything on the ground is taken as a subject and shot without using any kind of Zoom or zoom lenses and you will experience the wideness of nature. From bodies of water to landscapes mixing with different structures. It is also called as Bird Eye photography.

Aerial Photography is really enjoying. Taking pictures from above, seeing the beautiful view down below the camera. There are a number of ways to take aerial photographs like using Air balloons, Remote sensing devices, Radio Controlled Planes/Helicopters, parachutes and Kites.

Taking stunning Aerial Photos is an art in its own. It was first practiced in the 1800’s by photographers in balloons. The camera in Aerial photography may be hand held or mounted, and photographs may be taken by a photographer, triggered remotely, or triggered automatically.

Tip: When shooting aerial photography, stay pretty low, usually at about 1,000 feet (300 meters) above the ground. High equals hazy in aerial photography.
