I’ve been getting ready to go back up in the air to shoot aerials from Chicago. It’s one of my favorite views of the city.
The other night I was going through images from my last airborne adventure seeing what I liked and what I didn’t like. I learned I need to shoot more close-ups. I know that sounds weird, but I think half of all good photography is showing people things they don’t normally see.
We all know what the John Hancock Center looks like. Seeing it from above is one thing, but seeing it close-up from above is another. One of my favorite pictures of the Willis Tower is a close-up of the skydeck and all the people looking out (see it here).
So that’s on my list in the next month or so. We’ll see how everything turns out, because Mother Nature has a big say in whether aerial photography happens and how it turns out.
