Katrin Korfmann is a German photographer who loves taking pictures from a great height. Unable to fly, Katrin utilizes cranes and remote-controlled helicopters to get the angle she craves. The final image is actually a composite of multiple images taken over a period of time. Each one can take months to complete and is composed of around 500 to 2,000 shots. Since the shots are taken at different parts of the day, Katrin has to sync the shadows too. She said: “In the bird’s-eye view people look alike. The idea is to create two dimensions: one when you see it from far away and another when you zoom in and see it from very close. Then you see all the differences: in the clothes they wear, the things they carry."
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
