Blog

Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.

Kapism: Go Fly A Kite

At times I use my blog to post work by other photographers that I find interesting or inspiring.  Today I have just such a post.

Kapism....what the heck is that? Yeah, I never heard the word either.  Turns out that it is a technique where one suspends a computerized camera from a kite in order to make aerial photographs.

Photographer Chris Benton did just that (no drones for that man!!) and flew the kite over the salt lakes of California, making surreal aerial abstract photos like the ones below:

Interested in more kite photos?

Here is another selection of some images taken from kites by various photographers. Unfortunately I can't find the names of the photographers associated with the images on the linked page, so I will supply the link, but not copy over any of the images without being able to attribute them.
