Your entire gallery of work is breathtaking. Perhaps one day I’ll pursue the realm of KAP, but until then I’ll just enjoy looking at your work.
Congrats on the RB feature mate :)
OK. This photo is the coolest! I have to figure out how to take a photo from a kite. Just knowing how you took the shot makes this photo even more appealing. You have provided such an awesome perspective.
The camera is put in a frame that is hung from a ‘picavet suspension’ on the kite line. If you search for ‘KAP rig’ in Flickr then you should see examples!
Congratulations on making the homepage!
So do you just set the self timer? Very interesting! makes for some stunning images!
A simple question?…… I have used 4 different cameras for KAP so far and used 3 different trigger methods!My (retired from duty) Pentax Optio S10 that took this picture was fired by an infra red remote velcroed to the front of the camera. The same method was used with my (crashed and killed) Nikon D60 DSLR.My Nikon D5000 was an in-built timer/intervalometer so no add-ons required.My Canon PowerShot A590IS is triggered via an SDM script on a partitioned SDHC card…. What does this mean?A wide range of Canon compacts can have their firmware hacked so that programmed instructions can be written in a simple text file which the camera will follow when prompted from a secret menu.CHDK (Canon Hackers Development Kit) is the original and still the most widely used hack. SDM (Stereo Data Maker) is a more basic, to the point set of script commands that I’ve opted to adopt. Google either acronym for further insight.
Congrats! Wonderful work. Adding you to watchlist!
Thanks Everyone. Surprised and pleased to be in the spotlight.I will try and address various questions in the coming days – please bear with me!
