From Amanda Arnold’s interview with Zack Seckler for Professional Photographer:
[AA]: What subject matter or scenes were you most interested in photographing?
[ZS]: With the aerial photography that I’ve done, I’m always looking to create images that have an abstract nature to them—a texture to them that is somewhat painterly in nature. And then the way I photograph them is by having the camera somewhat parallel to the ground, so you don’t see the horizon, which plays with the viewers’ expectations about the sense of scale. The purpose is to hover on this line between the abstract and reality and use a technique that supports that objective. And generally speaking, with composition I am aiming for a sense of balance both within the composition and the color palette.
