Cris Benton is a professor of architecture at UC Berkeley who has always had an interest in photography. His specialty niche is aerial photography but does not shoot from a helicopter or plane. He prefers to attach his DSLR to a Kite...yes a KITE! In this video Cris shows you how he has developed all of his gear and the various prototypes he used in the past. Watching this footage is really quite impressive on so many levels and the photos are unique as well. We've all seen small cameras mounted to balloons and kites but nothing has been this complex. After the video head over to Professor Benton's website to check out other images he has taken from the sky.
