This was shot over the course of two days at the 2011 Nebraska State Fair. There is something uniquely bizarre and exciting about the atmosphere at a fair midway, especially after dark. This is my first real attempt at shooting time lapse.

Technical details: This was shot with a Canon 20D capturing stills with an intervalometer; nearly 5000 photographs were required to make this video. It was primarily shot with a Tokina 11-16, but one of the shots was shot with a Canon nifty 50 1.8. The time compression is one second of video time = one minute real time. The fun thing about shooting this as stills is that the available resolution is technically near 4K, meaning it'd look as good on the silver screen as it does on Youtube. :)
