Lake Mendota Kite Aerial Photography

Wind conditions were perfect yesterday for a quick KAP session out on Lake Mendota. We headed out to where the Yacht club was racing, and caught the last lap of their final race. This was my first session with the Sony NEX-5 as my primary KAP camera, and I have a ton of tweaking to do. Here are a few of the keepers.

Good friends of mine were out sailing and sailed over to capture a few aerial images of their boat, H8, Great Expectations. Although I was using my AutoKAP rig, which automagically turns and pivots, I was able to get a few shots of them sailing underneathe my camera and kite.

I also had the GoPro rig up on the kite line, and got a few wide angle shots of the sailors.
