Aerial Photography

by Hannah Kern

Aerial photography was first practiced by the French photographer Gaspard-Felix Tournachon in 1858. From there, the use of aerial photography steadily matured during World War I, as reconnaissance aircraft became equipped with cameras with the purpose of recording enemy movements.

Now, jumping ahead by 200 years, aerial photography has branched out to a new demographic. Real estate. In today’s system of real estate, more and more agents are discovering that with aerial photography, they are able to achieve high end listings to promote their property in new and unique ways. To achieve an aerial photograph, the photographer must be positioned on the ground and angle the subject of the photo at an elevated position.  In most cases, the camera is not supported by a ground based structure. This kind of photo taking method is very beneficial and creative based to realtors because of the way the true size, shape dimensions, and layout of a home is shown in the visual. Aerial photography can also give the seller an advantage in their listing by showing their property in the context of its surrounding area or by showing the property at unique angles and viewings. As a result, these agents carry the potential to increase their sales and differentiate themselves from any competition they may face. Aerial photography is also useful in other forms of context.

The ability of aerial photography to record the adverse biological conditions of disease, pests, weeds, and the adverse physical and chemical conditions of drought, flood, and soil are very efficient for crop reviewing. Another example is construction monitoring; in which case, aerial photography is used to ensure that any building or construction project is running on schedule. If you are an agent looking to soar above and beyond your competitors standards, be sure to contact Blue Maple Photography for your aerial photography projects as well as your commercial real estate imagery needs.

Autumn Senior Portraits at Blue Maple Photography

Below are a few examples, what do you think?  As you can see, we specialize in onsite photography. We use a combination of natural and off-camera light. With this we can create the studio look just about anywhere.  There are three types of photographers, 1.) Natural light, 2.) On-camera light, 3.) Off-Camera light.  When you use solely natural light, the camera works to properly expose everything framed, the sky, background, model, foreground, etc….  The typical result, an overexposed sky or background and darken face on the model.  Hey, is the model the reason for the photograph?  On-camera light produces a harsh flat look with no dimension, not to mention strong visible shadows.  Off-camera lighting (remote controlled strobes in umbrellas or softboxes) is a much softer and flattering.  With this you get the studio look with great highlights, soft shadows, and lots of defining contrast.  Here the model pops out of the photograph.  Yes the item wanting to be photographed is now the visual key in the image.
