Transforming Aerial Photography into Abstract Art

There’s something about the perspective aerial photography provides that not only captivates us but also makes us understand our world better. In this article, Zack Seckler shares how he was able to capture abstract aerial images that show the world in a whole new light.

After exploring his options, he decided not to use drones. “There is tremendous variety and it’s a large country, so doing that with a drone would have taken months, “ he said.
