Fixed-Wing & Rotorcraft (Airplane & Helicopter) Aerial Photography

15-05-02 May Drill 0036-web© 2015 Desert View Aerial PhotographyTraditional aerial photography is photography taken from an airplane or helicopter. Photography from an airplane is often called “fixed-wing aerial photography” and photography from a helicopter is often called “rotorcraft aerial photography”. Historically, aerial photography was taken from hot air balloons, but as technology evolved these were replaced with modern air vehicles.

Desert View Aerial Photography is one of the few photography services that offers actual aerial photography from an airplane or helicopter. The most common uses for this photography is construction progress documentation and commercial real estate, although there are many other applications, such as for city planning, marketing, legal and insurance purposes.

There are two different views for aerial photography, oblique and vertical, which are described in further detail below.

Oblique Aerial Photography

Oblique aerial photographs are taken at an angle to the subject rather than directly overhead, allowing for viewing objects in multiple dimensions. Oblique aerial photos have many visual advantages and serve a variety of purposes, including highlighting the appearance and front vertical aspect of a subject; accentuating structural angles; identifying open areas and surrounding land; emphasizing a subject’s height and elevation.

Vertical Aerial Photography

Vertical aerial photos are taken directly over a subject aiming straight down with the camera lens perpendicular to the ground just like viewing a map. Vertical aerial photographs are best suited for projects needing precision mapping and uniform scale. Vertical aerials provide the best angle for viewing the distance between objects, displaying open and surrounding land areas, and showing street views and object visibility. Vertical aerial photos are an excellent map substitute and provide a good natural view.
