    I was wondering if anyone has any tips or tricks for doing aerial photography?

    I will be flying in a 4 seater cessna at about 4:00pm.
    Any info would be nice, as i will have no idea what im doing, and will probly not produce anything of quality.

    thanks for the help,
    Shea

    Is this flight for the purpose of photography? If not you may not get the chance to get the low altitudes and angles needed for good arials. If you know the owner/pilot you may ask if they can accomodate your needs for good photos.

    Oh, yea the pilot is actually my grandfather. We are just going for a fun flight and also wanted some pictures of a few houses and things. So probly asking to fly low altitudes will get the best results/angles for most objects?

    I've taken a few shots in the air and was totally dissatisfied. I read an article on the subject in a magazine that helped. The biggest thing is to use 1/500 or higher. If you have a choice, sit by a window that actually opens as most small plane windows are plastic and very blurry . Do not rest the camera on anything in the plane as you'll pick up vibrations. Go on a sunny day if at all possible.
