Vincent Laforet, San Francisco, 2014
Vincent Laforet is a leading US commercial photographer with a specialty in aerial photography of cities, at night, from a helicopter. The degree of technical difficulty is high because of the low light and consequent exposure problems, plus the shaking platform up in the air. He’s a master photographer and uses the best equipment but it’s still a big thing to make pictures as pretty as these. Click on this one of San Francisco to see what I mean.
