Yesterday was my first attempt at aerial photography. Chris Dearden flew me along the southern Fleurieu Peninsula coast from the Murray Mouth to Newland Heads then back to Goolwa in his recreational Sonex aircraft --- a Xenos motor glider. It's a great little fixed wing aircraft.
I had to make the photos of the coast through the perspex canopy at a 45 angle in order to avoid the aircraft's wing. I used my old Sony NEX-7 digital camera with a 35mm Leica M lens. I didn't even bother to use the Rolleiflex TLR medium format film camera that I had with me. it sat behind the seat untouched for the whole trip.
