Recommended Posts

Fabulous. I love aerial photography. I have a drone but I still have a long way to go with it before producing anything remotely as scenic.

Thanks Colin, these are fantastic images.

 

When I was a kid my parents had a book of aerial photographs by Dutch-Australian photographer Richard Woldendorp. They were all of Australian landscapes from a plane in the days when aerial photography was a rarer thing, taken on film long before drone photography existed. I remember being amazed by the patterns in red sand dunes in the desert, rivers and their tributaries in remote locations and that sort of thing - places you don't normally get to see. I could look at that book for ages. I looked up the photographer and he has a website. He is in his 90s now and seems to still be active in the photography world, doing exhibitions etc.

I have one (a basic one, not good enough for stock) and the biggest challenge is making what's in your mind's eye come to fruition. With on the ground photography, I can usually look at a scene, visualise how I will shoot it and then turn it into a digital image, or look at a scene and realise it isn't happening and not even get the camera out. The drone is different though, I often send it up with high hopes of an image in my head and find I can't make it happen. Takes a lot of practice.

I don't have a drone but that was my thought looking at these amazing images, how on earth do they pre-visualise what they might expect to capture.
