This piece is all about DC at dusk and night -- concentrating on the monuments and historial buildings on the mall. During the making of this time-lapse, I was hassled/stopped 27 times by DC police and received 5 parking tickets. That's pretty much how it goes in DC.
With help from my buddy Drew Breese, Russ Scalf, and a few unnamed sources we were able to complete this production... even if it was slightly behind schedule. It took nearly 3 months to film the sunsets -- since DC weather isn't always the best.
For the production, I used a combination of standard frames, tone-mapping, and traditional HDR (on a few shots). It's quite the mixture.
I hope you enjoy this piece and DC just as much as I do.
