Choosing a vehicle is very important in aerial photography. Helicopters are best used for aerial photography than using airplanes. It is because helicopters can stay still in the same place while photos are taken. Helicopters are also flexible because it can fly backwards and also can be slowed down. Helicopters even fly in low altitudes which brings the photographer closer to the subject. It can reduce the amount of degrading the image quality because of atmospheric conditions since photos are taken in low altitudes.

There are problems that aerial photographers encounter while taking images or photos. The major influence on aerial photography is the weather. Mist and fog or low clouds will make photographers hard to capture the subject because they will have difficulty in seeing the ground. When there are high clouds, it creates poor light which would create shadows that will make image look plain and poorly colored. High winds will make the aircraft move and will make it difficult to position. When you are inside an aircraft, vibrations can prevent the photographer to get vivid and sharp photos. For the photographer, fear of heights should be set aside because it will be one factor why photos wonít be delivered in a crisp and clear way.

Depending on the subject, the photographer usually creates breathtaking shots of everything on the ground.
