1. Adventure Is Calling

    This summer, two friends and myself all left our comfortable jobs of six years to spend two months traveling across the country and teaching photography workshops along the way. We all felt that it was time to take a risk and get out of our comfort zones... adventure was calling us. It was a trip filled with endless hours cooped up in a van, exploring breathtaking landscapes, sharing stories and laughs, meeting some of the nicest people, making new friends, getting to meet old friends from around the country, and sharing our love of photography with others. This trip was a constant test for me, as we had such short and limited time in nearly all of the spots we visited. In most cases, I'd have to hurry out of the van with all of my gear and find a decent composition in a very short amount of time as soon as we would arrive at the location. It was a constant race against the light. During those 2 months, we traveled across 32 states , visited 13 national and state parks, and drove nearly 13,000 miles in a (somewhat) trusty old Dodge Caravan... with no cruise control. It was an adventure that gave us many memories that we will all hold onto for many years to come. I think that everybody needs to take a trip and have their eyes opened to just how beautiful this world is and how much is really out there. A big thanks to Coca-Cola and Flickr for helping to sponsor our trip. Thanks also to everyone else that donated, attended our workshops, and gave us places to stay!

      I originally planned to complete this in 2011, but I became addicted to climbing and getting more footage. I now have ~100 time-lapses and dozens of other clips that'll go into an upcoming video. Stills at http://www.lukeallenhumphrey.com/Html/#638 Equipment: Using a 5D MKII-III, various lenses, and the Kessler Oracle controller. Music is another track from the sublime Animal Kingdom soundtrack (Antony Partos).

            We strolled through the MT. Rainier, Alpine landscape in the United States of America and a few miles from Seattle. The truth is that we were surprised by the accessibility and direct contact with nature and animals.

                NOTE: For best playback results, pause until the video has fully loaded. A collection of time lapses showing light and shadows cast on the snow and ice covered slopes of Mt. Rainier. It's hard to describe the feelings one gets when walking in and above the clouds in these landscapes. "In the mountains I celebrate creation. On each journey I am reborn." --Anatoli Boukreev Obviously he has been on much more and much larger mountains, but the sentiment is the same. All shots are video clips < 12 minutes long using the Canon 5D MKII + 16-35mm lens and sped up to varying degrees. Some clips are not sped up. Music is Silver Cruiser by Röyksopp. More info on my trip Friday of which this video includes a few time lapses here: http://lukeallenhumphrey.tumblr.com/

                  This time-lapse video is a compilation from my long weekend up in Washington last month. This was actually only my second time going out and doing time-lapse photography even though I've posted a couple of other videos already. It took me a while to compile it all due to the speed of my aging iMac at the time (I've since gotten a new one this week) and I was really struggling with some flicker in a couple of the sequences. You'll see that I wasn't able to eliminate all of of the flicker in every sequence but I think overall it turned out fairly well. I was really hoping I could have done a time-lapse of the Milky Way during my time there however the weather was not cooperating at all and I was lucky enough to be able to see the Milky Way for all of 10 minutes in my 4 days there. Cameras used: Nikon D7100 w/10.5mm f/2.8 fisheye, 14-24mm f/2.8, & 24-70mm f/2.8 lenses GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition Edited with: Lighroom 4 LRTimelapse 2 Final Cut Pro X Music by: J.

                      Promotional video I produced and directed for Akali Water. Shot on Red One Camera at 4k. This was my first working with an enormous amount of Red footage. Fortunately editing went smoothly and wasn't as difficult as suspected. Pure Glacier Water from Mt. Rainier, rich in natural trace minerals and naturally structured is infused with the patented and FDA approved ingredients of Alka-PlexLiquid™ to create this most advanced hydrating supplement.
