Yeah, nice photos Mike.
I especially like when the kite isn't to high up. It's like an "angels point of view" (or bird). If you are too high, it might look like it was from a plane.

I am really interested in KAP and wondering what is a good kit to start out with on the lower price end of things. I want to try this but I also don't want to invest a lot of money into it until I decide if it is something that I want to do.

Any suggestions?

I'd like to hear where you got your kit and what camera you plan to fly.

Great approach, very scary to me, but I enjoy seeing your results. The tilt shift edits are fun too!
