Aerial Art, Chemainus River Estuary

I’m busy making plans for the springs photography shoots and have ended up with a surprisingly long list of areas and subjects I want to photograph. One of my main goals is to try to shoot more aerial photographs of Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, primarily to fill in some empty areas in my aerial stock photography collection. On a personal level I want to shoot more “aerial art”; photographs that are purely on the artistic side. These images are not particularly easy to shoot, in fact I find them quite a bit more difficult to shoot than more general scenery.

    I have never tried aerial photography, but I find it intriguing in it’s abstractions. The first one could be a macro of moss, the second a macro of ice. The third is all aerial.

    Hi Lynn,

    You are right about the scale and how so many of them look like macro photos. It’s definitely a different way of viewing our beautiful planet.
