    Kite aerial photography - taking photos from the air in a natural, organic and gluten-free style: with a kite

  1. Well, we've found some strange circles in our kite aerial photos and decided to investigate ... And then many things happened: a rogue kite was flying alone, the circles were not what we thought they were, and a piece of ancient pottery was found. Did our kite really discover an Iron Age settlement? Please, check the full story on our KAP website... it's a bit of a long read, but is interesting, I promise 😉
  2. Hi all! Exactly one year ago we first let our blue Rokkaku fly with a camera suspended from it. We had so much fun flying, experimenting, learning ... It was a great year and we've compiled an article on Medium about kite aerial photography in general, with some thoughts, personal experiences, tips - and a lot of photos - hoping to inspire and popularize KAP. Every comment, suggestion - and critique - is gretly appreciated ... 😉

    Borders of the Roman Empire

    Well, maybe you should try 😉 ... It's so much fun and so interesting at the same time!
  4. Ljubljana Marshes and Ljubljanica river flowing through it are a very important archaeological site in Slovenia. We flew our kite above the place where a Roman boundary stone was found, resolving the question of administrative location of Colonia Iulia Emona (precursor of today's Ljubljana) within the Roman Empire.The whole story is on our KAP website ... 😉
  5. We went back to Lake Cerknica to check how it's doing now when the waters are receding. It was spectacular .... More kite aerial photos of this nature gem are on our KAP website - it's worth a click, really ... 😉
  6. "How high are you?" "No, officer - it's 'Hi, how are you?' ..." Double KAP session above Ljubljana marshes ... first we let Nikon fly, and then we went for altitude with lighter Canon A810 ... :-) More photos from both can be found on our website! ;-)
  7. We flew our kite above one of the largest intermittent lakes in Europe, Lake Cerknica, a Ramsar and Natura2000 site. This lake is very good at playing "now you see me, now you don't" - check the full story on our website! ;-) Shot with Nikon 1 J1 on a Great White Delta.

    White gold of Strunjan

    No - I was joking about that ... of course the interests differ! (yet this is a KAP sub-forum - and I was just trying to get more people to post) Thank you for your kind words and encouragement - and nice pic! (the first KAP we did was a video made with a smarphone on a quad - it was terrible )
  10. Well, this is a bit embarrasing - being the only one spamming this KAP forum - but it's actually you who don't fly, don't shoot and don't post, so you should be embarrased! ;-) This is a photo from a KAP session above Strunjan salt pans, Slovenia - the northernmost salt pans in the Mediterranean. Check the full story at our website! :-)
  11. Kite science: how to defend fragile habitats against invasive weeds - with a kite! Aerial photos cah help in assesing the number of invasive plants in an ecosystem. Kite aerial photos even more so, as the kite is way eco friendly than other alternatives ... you just don't go buzzing above an important habitat scaring the hell out of everyone (especially them protected species)!😉 Check the full story on our KAP Website ... ;-) Che
  12. Doing kite aerial photography with non-motorized rig means you need to point the camera before the flight - and this is somewhat of a black art. But while the camera swings under the kite, it covers more ground, so you can stitch the photos together into a wider view. We did this with photos of some of our KAP sessions - here is a stitched view from the Karst ridge cliffs to Sočerga valley, Slovenia. St. Quiricus church can be seen on the left. If you'd like to see more of them - just check the new post on our KAP website! ;-) Thanks :-)
  13. Well, maybe this topic should be in the KAP forum, but we got to ask - did you ever flew a kite where you felt you shouldn't? We did a kite aerial photography session above a cemetery - and it felt wrong ... our plan was to fly the kite directly above it ant to shoot straight down, but we just couldn't do that - so we flew the kite beside the cemetery ... it was like we were invasive and disrespectful ... like the fun that goes with flying a kite was somehow inappropriate for the place. Had any of you a similar experience?

    Kite above st. Volbenk

    Well thank you! :-) Will post again - the wind here is perfect these days, and spring is going full steam ahead ... KAP is in the air! ;-)
  15. Kite aerial photo of a cute little church of St. Volbenk (Wolfgang of Regensburg) near Zelše, Slovenia.Could st. Volbenk be a patron saint of kite flyers? See the whole KAP session and learn more about the church and the saint on our KAP website!
