To make these pictures, I used a camera (Canon G15) lifted at 150 meter high by a kite (strandvlieger).This technique is called Kite aerial photography (KAP). The kite is attached and secured to my body. In this case the lifting power was produced by a red Maxi Dopero.
The camera rotates and is triggered automatically, but I can take over all functionalities from the ground. Yes, I do see what the camera is shooting (video downlink) .
