    *** Best viewed in HD *** Skylights is a timelapse video made up of nearly 6,000 photos taken over the last few months in New Mexico, USA. Every frame in this video is a photograph. Making this video was probably one of the most fun and most rewarding projects I've ever done. I greatly enjoyed traveling to remote parts of the state and it was an absolute thrill staying up all night shooting the stars. It's hard to describe how very still, quiet and beautiful the night sky is when you are so far away from the city. Most nights we all go to sleep and miss a spectacular show overhead, I hope I can capture just a hint of what may have been missed. Many shots were taken at the VLA ( Very Large Array) in New Mexico; The location for several scenes from the movie "Contact". The VLA is a perfect location for capturing the night sky because of its lack of light pollution. In areas this dark, the Milky Way is visible to the naked eye and almost looks like a string of clouds. The second to last shot records the sunset moments after the total eclipse of May 20th, 2012. It was pretty exciting to capture it on camera! This is my second timelapse video and I cannot wait to get started on my next! You can follow me on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/kn8photo Equipment used: Nikon D300s, D7000 and D5100 Tokina 11-16mm and Nikkor 10.5mm Fisheye. The eclipsed sunset shot was captured with a Sigma 500mm. I used the Stage Zero Dolly from Dynamic Perception for the motion controlled shots in this video.

      This video is a short collection of time lapse shots taken over the last 3 months in Albuquerque, other areas in New Mexico & west Texas. This is my first timelapse and I cannot wait to do more! All photos were taken using Nikon D300s + Tokina 11-16 except the very first shot with the moon rise (Nikkor 10.5mm Fisheye). I'm still refining my technique but I've found the best settings for star shots are: Manual Mode, 30 sec exposure, ISO 2500 & RAW Please be sure to watch in HD with sound. Thanks! http://knatephoto.com http://www.facebook.com/KnateMyersPhotography Track: Gina Artist: Mr. FijiWiji http://soundcloud.com/mrfijiwiji https://www.facebook.com/mrfijiwiji

              Fun little multimedia piece featuring photos, videos, time lapses, and action time lapses, of adventures with two friends in Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks here in California. Many roads were under construction in the park, yet they were still overloaded with endless amounts of people! But, more importantly, the sights were beautiful. The trees - from various pines, cedars, firs, oaks & small shrubs, to the mighty giant sequoia - were all a humbling sight to behold, the meadows were green and lush, and mountains were awe-inspiring. We also spotted plenty of birds, small rodents, a few deer, and had a campsite-encounter with a curious young brown bear. The weather was fantastic - warm in the day and just slightly cooler in the evening. A perfect blend for an Adventure in the World of Giants! Hope you enjoy! Support our parks!!!

                    • Bending Time - 27,000 pieces from a time-lapse master

                      Open Producer Anthony L'Huillier, collaborates with time-lapse master Travis Hague in the heart of outback South Australia. Together they've created a film of epic proportions that celebrates Australia's haunting landscape and starscape. By day Travis Hague is pest controller - he exterminates bugs for a living. By night he transforms himself into a master photographer/cameraman who creates elaborate motion time-lapse sequences that are undeniably gob-smacking. For kicks Travis goes out into the surrounding desert around Roxby Downs to shoot time-lapse sequence for six hours at a time. In fact whenever Travis gets a chance he films these sequences and admits to being obsessed with their visual possibilities. He loves the visual effect of compressing time and the patterns and movement that occur because of the 'time bending'. Take one look at his footage and you can see why he's got the filmmaker's bug. Travis has a remarkable combination of technical wizardry with an artful disposition. What most impressed me was that he was self-taught. Through trial and error and trawling the internet for technical and 'how to' tutorials, Travis has taught himself time-lapse. He goes back to reshoot a shot if he doesn't like it and anyone who is willing to return multiple times to get a better shot is number one in my books. That's how I learnt to shoot and the deep learning curve of repetition is invaluable for any filmmaker. Travis even blew me away with the way he shot footage while we were together. While shooting sequences Travis would talk the entire time while adjusting his camera and motion rig. He talked in great detail about cameras settings, exposures, shutter speeds, ISOs, lenses, RAW vs JPEG, intervalometers, the limitations of various DSLRs, editing software and workflows and what was the best time of the year to film The Milky Way. It wasn't 'I read it on the internet' stuff, it was real knowledge through real application. Impressive stuff. As is his footage. This film has 27,000 pieces of media with a mind-bending workflow in post production to uphold image quality. The edit was very complicated - which is a lot coming from me - but it was a very satisfying challenge. The ultimate satisfaction of my job is when I meet a contributor who is a fellow filmmaker who also wants to push the envelope to create better content. It is even better when you learn something from that contributor and there is an exchange of ideas and techniques. I have to thank Travis for teaching me things about filmmaking I did not know. Awesome. This film will showcase on the 7.30 Report SA this Friday, 27th September.
