Low Level Aerial photography in Animas Valley

Below is an example of a low level aerial photograph taken from a weight shift control light sport aircraft.  The maneuverability, open cockpit, and high wing make these aircraft ideal aerial platforms for photography.  It is relatively easy to get in low and close to a subject without compromising safety and the freedom of an open cockpit allows multiple angles for photography.

The post production modifications included a slight decrease in saturation since the landscape is a fairly uniform brown and an added tilt shift effect to enhance the 3D nature of the hilltop that is the subject of the photograph.  As in this photograph, color can also be used to increase the 3D effect.
