Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Welcome new flyer. I am in the Saginaw area. If you are located anywhere close send me a message.
How do you take those pictures skb ?

You can see the kite's right line curving up and out of focus to the right corner of the pic. The camera is held up in my right hand and the left does most of the steering.

I pre-set the focus and exposure on the kite before taking the shot and let it drop down the Edge of the Window, taking 3 or 4 continuous shots as it's getting into position. It's all done in Manual, because my camera's Automatic takes too long to get set before the kite needs to be rescued from dropping in the pond.  Embarrassed

Using full resolution and having it zoomed out left enough room to adjust for crooked horizons and framing. I delete at least 90% of the shots and only use the few that happily work out.

I knew it had to be something absolutely crazy like that!  Shocked

Wonderful results tho' !   Smiley
Congratulations and my deepest respect.

Chilly mid-70's here, not a lick of wind, with predictions of the wrong wind (Santa Ana winds) this afternoon. Jus' chillin' at home.
