This is the first draft of a time-lapse photo sequence I shot of the second Obama Inauguration.

The sequence is composed of 1969 photographs shot every 10 seconds from 7:02am-12:54pm.
To secure my credentialed spot on the press riser, I arrived at The Capitol around 4:30am to go through security...I got access to my spot around 6:30am...in a way the time-lapse shows the "hurry up and wait'" aspect of covering such a huge event.

I shot the event as part of a team of photographers for Barack Obama: The Official Book of the Second Inaugural, by Five Ties Publishing.

I hope to make a few tweaks to the changing dawn exposures.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
