I was just about to link to some of your images, but I didn't know that you are here.I have shot aerials since 1979 - mostly 35mm and medium format film - until 2003. Since 2003 - all digital. I've shot around the world with both MF digital and DSLR's. A Gyro is an must-have tool for aerials with MF. Folks who use IS or VR are, in my opinion, kidding themselves about sharpness. A gyro is essential.
I shoot with my Alpa TC or my Hassy H series mated to a Leaf Credo back. I always use - either my Kenyon Labs KS 4x4 gyro or a KS-8 gyro.
Don't worry about depth of field, go for the highest shutter speed possible, stay out of a Robinson R-22 and remember, altitude is your friend.
Lovely photos.Hello All,
I was able to have a bucket list adventure, when I flew on an Airship Ventures Zeppelin (since has gone out of business) ride from Long Beach to Moffet Field in San Jose. I took well over 3,000 images with my Leica S2. It was amazing. Most of my images were taken with the 180mm lens. I had a high percentage of keepers. I tried to make sure that I shot the images at 1/2000 of a second. I also shot the images with the lens wide open. You can see more images at scotttanseyphoto.com to see more images
Thank you.MU= mirror up
No difference from every other type of photography.Thank you.
Does anybody know how did people use to judge exposure, and how they still do, in fact, when shooting film, 35 mm or medium-format, such as with a 6 × 7 Pentax, Mamiya or any other similar camera, or with a 6 × 6 Hasselblad or some other camera of that format?
Is there any sense in using a light meter for aerial photography?
