Cris Benton on Kite Aerial Photography

by

Just because you didn’t get to go to that awesome photography conference doesn’t mean that you can’t learn something from the pros! Occasionally, we’ll be featuring a recommended photography lecture or interview on Phototuts+.

MAKE is website, magazine, blog and more. They promote do-it-yourself electronics, carpentry, programming, and pretty much anything else you can think of. This video showcases Cris Benton, a professor at UC Berkley, who talks about his passion for kite aerial photography.

MAKE can be found all over the web on Vimeo, Flickr and more, but their main site is here, and don't forget to check out all their DIY photography blog posts here. And check out Benton's kite photography page here.
