Igniting Your Rocket Photography

with Erik Kuna

In this interview I sit down with rocket photographer Erik Kuna. We discuss the ins and outs of shooting rockets, compositing multiple exposures, and the importance of mission planning for successful time constrained projects. Erik is doing important and historic work by documenting the reinvigorated space race, using high tech tools to document our baby steps towards the colonization of Mars.
