The first day of Balloon Studio

Here are some images of our first day of the Balloon studio. The studio is taught by Jeff Warren and Seth Hunter from the Media Lab. We managed to fly the camera 3 times.

Listening to the weird noises coming from the big balloon.

Making sure the camera is well protected

Ready to launch but Mariah does not want to let go because she is worried about the camera

The balloon quickly rising, 1200 ft

All happy

And some images from the sky

Here are some more images from a different shoot. Unfortunately, we forgot to change the resolution so the pics are not good resolution but the shots are amazing.
