Kingston Launch

Here’s a little thing I shot on my phone while boarding the Kingston ferry yesterday.



Tiny Cone


This was an experiment with doing macro time-lapse. (The pinecone is about the size of your thumbnail) I thought it would be interesting to have shadows move over the pinecone, but it turned out it was much more interesting just having it in the sun and watching it open up some. I will definitely be playing with this more.


Forest Path Shadows


Pools of light are the most mobil pools around. Honestly I was taking a nap on the side of the trail over the 30 minutes or so this was cooking. The temperature was just too comfortable not to.


The Freeway


When I find someplace that I think is pretty, I’ll sit there and watch the world happen.


Old Train Bridge


While waiting for this time-lapse I kept myself busy under seemingly still skies. Watching it after the fact was mesmerizing┬áto see the turmoil that was actually happening above me. (Sorry about the big file, I didn’t have the heart to make it shorter)


Rolling Clouds


Last week I took a much needed day off and time-lapsed a few clouds. I love watching time-lapse of clouds. It gives them life and movement that are almost impossible to grasp by just watching them in person. Soon as to changes the speed and context though, they give the sky a mood and a story.


These were in about a 4 mile area in the hills outside of Wenatchee.


The day was lovely enough, that even with four applications of sunblock, I managed to get sunburns.



The Lovely Things at the Zoo


Today I went to the zoo with my buddy. T’was a lovely time and we’ll being going again in a couple weeks! As has become the norm, this was shot on my phone. Phones are pretty crazy these days.


Seattle Monorail in 10 Seconds


A little video segment nabbed during today’s commute. Shot on my old iPhone 4s and cleaned up in After Effects.


The Campthing

Here are a few more from camping. (Click the images to see them larger) This was right as we were leaving. I got my camera set up right as we were about to leave to do a quick time-lapse of our camping spot. About three pictures into that, this thing appeared. I stopped the water from moving to focus the attention on the mirrored thing.


Soon as a few of the wide shots snapped the glow above the object disappeared. A couple of minutes after it disappeared I got closer to get a few close-up shots. This is about as close to a selfie I’ll ever take. You can see my shadow in the reflection of the mirrored thing.


In this one I was managed to catch the final camp chair and bags to be put away and the other two campers. After this, last time-lapse we took one of the last loads of stuff up to the car. By the time we got back from the car, the object was gone.






More experiments with reflections, AE, and C4d.
