Aerial Photographs

November 26, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Grey Dolphin has been my IT business over the last few years and this year it is branching out into aerial photography. With a Permission For Commercial Operation it is now able to offer a range of aerial imaging services.

 

As you would expect still images are on offer, this can be of buildings or for mapping. Mapping is the process of merging many images to produce high resolution image of fields or other areas.

 

Video is something new for me and is an interesting challenge to produce similar quality to what I have worked on for the pictures on this site.

 

Finally there are the fun 3D images. This is where many images are merged together to create a 3D model that can be rotated and viewed from any angle.

 

A new menu option will be added to showcase these services and allow purchasing. 2017 will be an interesting year.

Aerial Photography

Its been a while since I wrote an entry on this blog. Well I now have have joined the world of UAV ( drone ) owners and completed BNUC-S training course. So I'm  one step away from joining the world of aerial photographers, just need to get the CAA Permission for Aerial Work.

Well the new machine will let me take still pictures from the air of the same quality as the existing pictures this site. Additionally I am able to produce high quality 4K Video. This exciting new challenge will be available for both static and moving subjects.

Other areas of interest include creating detailed maps and 3d images of buildings, structures and landscapes. 

Samples of the above will be posted soon.

Well its been far too many months since I was able to get out for the day and and photograph rowers. Saturday saw me at Burway Small Boat Head. Quite a nice day if a little chilly. It was also first outing for the new camera. So lots to learn about an Olympus E-M1. Seems to have worked reasonably well just need to tweak the settings a little more.

Hopefully I'll get a slection of the South African animal pictures loaded soon just for something a little diffenre from bikes and rowers.

Oh joy of joys, seems google does not like me much any more.... :(

Guess I need to get back to writing words about bikes and rowers doing their thing along the Thames valley. If I believe google analytics there are a lot of your still searching on 4shead.

This is the challenge of having a web site with lots of pictures and not so many words.  Even if the pictures are labeled google does not seem to like that rowing club abbreviations, thinks they are too short and not meaning full. As for the classes also too short, but scullers is OK. Am sure a few hours of editing web pages will help a bit.

Mind you I have just gone through the 30,000 picture mark in about 4 years of chasing bikes and rowers. Must mean trusty camera is  due for and upgrade.


Henley Womens Regatta

Seems to have been ages since I was at Henley photographing rowers. Sadly work and weather got in the way of Saturdays photography. Wind blowing rain straight onto a lens does make life a little challenging. Fortunately Sunday was just about dry so was a pleasure to watch some excellent rowing.

Interesting chatting to folks as well making a very enjoyable day.
