The Adirondack Hot Air Balloon Festival is one of the great fall traditions of the New York State Capital District Region. Many an area resident will make the dark pre-dawn trek on the cool crisp autumn mornings to see the scores of hot air balloons inflate and launch.
Of course, the Adirondack Hot Air Balloon Festival is also a haven for photographers. When you walk around the balloon festival you can see all of the photographers taking pictures of the grand hot air balloons. There is so much to photograph - the flight crews preparing the balloons for launch, the inflating of the hot air balloons, and of course, the graceful ascent of each majestic balloon.
To take full advantage of the day from a photographer's perspective requires a very early start to the day. Today was one of those days for me at Kens Portrait Photography. Up at 2 am in the morning to prepare myself and my equipment for a 3 am a departure. An hour drive up to Floyd Bennett Memorial Airport in Glens Falls. Arrive around 4 pm waiting for the gates to open. The delicious Big Balloon Breakfast starts at 5 pm and the balloons begin launching at 6:30 pm.
