Chris MacFarlane Photography | Fine Art | Workshop-Aerial

As an avid advocate of new photographic technology (as well as having a deep respect for the historical past), Chris has embarked on a project of creating 'artistic aerial imagery'.

The emergence of multi multidisciplinary technologies has created an unparalleled opportunity for photographers.

 

 

 




 

Every significant technological advancement has had some influence on art and photography very often is the first medium to adapt to the change.

The macro lens, wide angle and telephoto change the we see. It changes our perspective in a literal and technical sense.

Likewise the use of the Drone Photography.

It has enabled a bird's eye view to photographers in recent years, to what was only possible from ground level for most people.

 

 

 

 

 

Like all technology - it can be used for good and evil. Hopefully creating and displaying artistic aerial photography will inspire positive work.

Although technology changes, basic composition techniques do not!

Some of them are:

 

  • Don't try to be perfect
     
  • Simplicity
     
  • Rule of thirds
     
  • Lines
     
  • Shapes
     
  • Contrast
     
  • Framing
     
  • Symmetry & Pattern
     
  • Practice Practice Practice
     
  • Experiment and have fun
