I will never understand the appeal of Burning Man. Sure, a couple of cool art projects come out of there every year, but for the most part, I just have in my mind a picture of a massive dirty hippie party that lasts for a week. But there’s something great about watching a bustling city come together over the course of a few days and then putter out.
“In Volume 2 I again show off my beautiful home state of Arizona and I also made several trips to Utah. This video has some iconic landmarks that we have seen before. I felt that showing them again with motion controlled HDR and/or night timelapse would be a new way to see old landmarks.”
It’s so much work, the locations are amazing. Very well done.
“This timelapse is about a year in the making. I started sometime in June of 2010 and finished it on August 19, 2011. It wasn’t constant work of course, just working on it every now and then. I’d estimate I have invested anywhere between 250 and 300 hours on it. Most of this was time I spent walking, biking, or riding the bus to locations I was shooting. There are very few locations I used a car to get to.”
