“I have been inspired by aerial since I took my first flight on an airplane for skydiving. When I saw the view and possibility I was wonder by myself how I could share that incredible view about the world looked from this birds-eye perspective.”
Aerial photography is a kind of photography where pictures are captured from a higher altitude in this case using drones, helicopters or even airplanes to provide a larger view of the subject and its background.
High Obliques including the horizon taken as wide or close ups images.
In addition we have the Low Obliques not including the horizon.
Vertical taken above the subject, useful for looking down to see the general of large areas.
Close up taken as close as required to fill the frame with the subject to create impact or capture maximum detail.
Wide shot taken usually to show the subject with surroundings. Maybe showing for example the road and get all the infrastructure features in the frame.
The art to show the aspects of cities; often known as the urban equivalent of a landscape but differentiated by town including bot not limited to buildings, city skylines or village scenes that are less urban in nature.
Skyscrapers and high rise buildings in the state of California with a feature to the new Wilshire Grand Center at 1,100 ft (340) located in Los Angeles City.
Images can became more attractive with a different and amplify the scenery on a large piece of property. In addition a bird eye view can allow the viewer a better perspective about the size and the surrounding landscape.
The Fog Cityscape
Why the Fog? Probably because inspires breathtaking pieces of art and usually unique. I really believe about the mysterious atmosphere perfect to capture a magical moment and feel like inside a magical kingdom in the sky.
Los Angeles – City of Angels
The city of moments and experiences sometimes so pleasant and unbelievably magical. Famous about the Walk of Fame in Hollywood and the perfect skyline located in the heart of city without boundaries to explore around to find your perfect and special alignment when we talking about photography.
San Francisco – Fog City
So many reasons this city is so famous but definitely the atmosphere that the foggy called Karl make frequently during the year around the city and the majestic Golden Gate Bridge.
In addition the location of the city between so many high areas around as example Berkley, Oakland Marin and even San Mateo give the advantage during clear days to make beautiful compositions with the moon or sun during either sunrise or sunset (depends of your location).
Video, Timelapse and Hyperlapse
What is the difference between a Timelapse and Hyperlapse?
According my last researches Timelapse is the action in a scene that the camera is static; however Hyperlapse has no limitations because the camera can be moved with also movements and certain angle changes.
Timelapse the most common and popular and I am always shooting RAW image format so I can be able to enhance maintain a high quality of my final version.
Hyperlapse examples to better understand this hyper-fast, ultra-smooth timelapse videos with stabilization technology (using apps) that help me to create with a cinematic look with professional quality.
Aerial offers the opportunity to the view of buildings and landscapes that cannot be captured from the ground specially to show overall views of large buildings or the surrounding landscape.
This is my favorite video made during the annual tradition as the city of San Francisco with the spectacular fireworks on New Year’s Eve.
