New York

I create high-resolution aerial panoramas by shooting hundreds of photos, and then piecing them together like an intricate puzzle.

Currently, I'm working on an aerial photography book about San Diego. For more information about the book, visit [link] .

Prints available on my website [link] .

Fantastic image! I take it you do these by helicopter or plane? it is difficult to get all the photos?
Rafael-Rivera's avatar
Hm....well, I wouldn't say that it's difficult so much as meticulous and time-consuming. You guessed right about the helicopter: I'm up there for about an hour taking zoomed-in photos, and then piecing them together again afterwards is another long part of the process. Thanks as always for your great support! :hug:
