Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place as this is a question rather than a discussion, but.....I have been asked by a company I do some commercial work for if I'd be interested in doing aerial photography for them. As I don't have any experience in this field, (and before I take this task on) I'd appreciate any tips anyone might have in regard to technique and best lenses for the job. At present I'm using Canon 1DS & 5D mkII bodies with 16-35mm, 24-70mm & 70-200mm 2.8 IS.
Subject is likely to be a plot of land or development in progress. Bearing in mind that I'm assuming a helicopter is the way to go rather than fixed wing and I may be able to get the pilot to go reasonably close, am I likely to need a longer lens, or is my longest lens adequate? Any gear to stabilize lens? Any other suggestions appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
