It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s a Camera on a Kite!
KAP - Kite Aerial Photography

Remember the first time you flew in a plane and looked down to discover people had become ants, cars had become toys, and swimming pools, mere puddles?

We still love the view from up high, so it’s no wonder we’re smitten with Kite Aerial Photography (“KAP”, for those in the know).

The concept is simple: rig a camera to a kite, wait for some wind, let ‘er rip. The results — like DIY satellite photography. Check out the tops of tall buildings, spy on your neighbor’s backyard, or capture the abstract beauty of a lake from above.

Scott Haefner’s KAP site is something of a bible for the sport, chock-full of how-to instructions and sample photos.

Check out some of the pics (more here), and panoramas, then hit up Scott’s site to get started!
