The beauty of photographing hot air balloons is that either the balloons themselves can be the focal point, or the landscape they are flying over.
During my search for these photographs, I discovered that there is definitely a skill to taking outstanding shots of hot air balloons. Obviously, the lighting is of great importance, but also, the angles, backdrops, brightness, contrast – just about every consideration must be thought about to get the perfect shot, so the photographer must be not only a very good photographer, but also have a creative eye.
Hot air balloons tend to conjure up a dreamy, summer, romantic connection – probably more so for those of us who have never had the opportunity to take a ride in one!
