Always double check your settings before launching your camera before launching it for an hour. I believed I had set the camera correctly at home before leaving but was wrong. This session was shot incorrectly at aperture f8 (aperture priority) making shutter speeds considerably slower than I would have preferred. This error resulted in a number of images with slight motion blur making them appear out of focus. They had to be discarded, particularly those when the sun disappeared behind cloud. F4 or lower would have been more appropriate.
This was a group KAP, to coincide with the California KAP weekend. Our part in trying to promote a worldwide KAP weekend and three of us got together: myself,
and Carl (kapercarl)
(Incidentally a Worldwide KAP Weekend did get “off the ground” several weeks later first weekend in May on which I will report later.)
Here are a few of the images harvested this session. These pictures were taken from a camera rig suspended below a kite (Kite Aerial Photography – KAP).
