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.
