    So this is what I did over this past winter when I was not making people coffee. It's all time-lapse footage shot in and around Anchorage, Alaska, with the emphasis on the nature around the city rather then on the people and buildings. This is a collection of the nicer stuff I shot of the northern lights, stars, sunset, and the tide. All of this was shot between October 2011 and April 2012. The music is Aston's Classical Cover of the song You've Got The Love by Florence & The Machine. http://www.youtube.com/astonmusic Music used with the bands permission. : ) Equipment used: Canon 5D Mark II Canon Rebel xTi (modified to full spectrum) Canon EF 24 - 105 mm Sigma DC 18 - 200 mm Sigma 8mm EX DG Fisheye (a thoroughly epic lens) Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly (kinda beyond epic) Orion TeleTrack AZ-G Mount (really good for astrophotography) Motorcycle and Car batteries from my locale battery store And a lot of wires that connect everything together. Adobe Bridge CS4 and CS5 Adobe Photoshop CS4 Adobe Lightroom 3 LRTimelapse (pretty much the most amazing software ever) Hugin (for unwrapping the 8mm shots) Final Cut Pro 5.1.4 (for making the stills move) (Please note that the colours look different (like a lot) on different screens. The colours here look desaturated from the original file on my screen. But the colours look like the original on other screens, but not all, I'm not sure why.)

        • Down and Out in Anchorage: Homeless in America's Coldest City

          How do the outdoor homeless survive the winter in America's coldest city? That's the question Weather Films, the documentary film unit of the Weather Channel's website, Weather.com, asked in January 2014. We sent a crew to find out. We discovered a group of people who brave punishing cold, random violence, their own substance abuse problems, and the efforts of outreach workers in the pursuit of living as they want to – outside, beyond the reach of shelters and law enforcement. There's no narrator in this film – our goal was to show the humanity and complexity of the men and women living without homes to by letting them speak for themselves.
