Over Thanksgiving, my family took a trip to Leo Carrillo State Park for an afternoon of photography, including airphotos with the kite aerial photography rig. The system we used here was a Skyhook 30 parafoil kite with a 15″ drogue tail hoisting a Cannon G9 camera. It took photos over the beach, tidepools, and near-shore seagrass beds. The tide was very low that day (something like a -1), so the water was out past the big rock, exposing quite a bit of the seagrass, but also the water was clear and the glare was cooperating, so the resulting photos show what’s under the water as well.

KAP at Leo Carrillo State Park
I lead two lives - one as an artist and the other as a scientist. More and more I'm finding my two worlds colliding, and it's not the disaster you might expect. View all posts by micheletobias
