Overview:
Kite Aerial Photography (KAP) is a wonderful way to take photographs from above by hanging a camera in a rotating rig with an automatic timer on a kite string. I will talk about how to make a KAP rig, appropriate cameras and kites for KAP, and safe flying techniques. I will show you my kites and rigs, and hope to convince some of you to try out KAP for yourselves.
