natureLAPSE: Volume 3

natureLAPSE: Volume 3

This is the third volume of timelapses in my natureLAPSE series. This series of timelapses includes the following locations. Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, South Dakaota, Wisconsin, Wyoming, and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

2012 was a busy year for me. I was fortunate enough to travel to many beautiful locations for both work and play. Whether the productions I was working for called for timelapses or not, I always tried to get at least one timelapse in to capture the location in which I was working. Many times as a professional cameraman, your working from sun up to sun down, leaving no time for anything else, so you will find a large amount of night sequences in this volume for that very reason.

Most of the timelapses were shot with a Canon 60d and tokina 11-16mm lens, some are done with a GoPro Hero 2. All photos were shot as RAW files, batch processed in Lightroom 4, strung together in Quicktime 7, and edited in FCPX.

A huge thanks goes out to Tad Hutchinson who made the music track for this piece as well as natureLAPSE: volume 2.

Enjoy!

STARLIGHT

STARLIGHT

Just to clear it up at 1:30 into the film, that shot is a moon rise, not a sun rise as some people have asked.
Photographed over the course of three weeks in Johannisholm, Sweden. Dec 2012 – Jan 2013
With the sun setting around 3-4 pm each evening, this gave alot of opportunities to shoot at night.
Most of the time it would be waiting for just the right weather conditions, to capture the moon rise, and the Aurora.

Shot with the Canon 5D Mark 3, 60D and 550D. 100% RAW
