    • Rim Fire, Time To Run!

      01:39

      from Jeff Sullivan / Added

      I had been thinking of heading to Yosemite to shoot the Rim Fire for a few days, but on the 11 o'clock news Tuesday night I heard that Tioga Road CA-120 with the best access would close at noon the next day! So I immediately packed up, headed out, and started shooting the Rim Fire a little after 3am. I shot until morning twilight, caught sunrise at Tenaya Lake, then returned home. I ended up with six time-lapse clips, and set them to "The Time To Run by Dexter Britain (www.DexterBritain.co.uk). Thanks in advance for comments, likes, Tweets, and Facebook shares. Additional thoughts 8/30 - The video is understandably generating mixed reactions, since fire is understood to be an agent of renewal which many species rely on, but it's also a force bringing danger and destruction. I didn't set out to influence viewers in either direction. There was little room for editorial influence on this short project. I had roughly two hours to shoot from two very limited viewpoints, and I shot with a variety of lenses and focal length from 30mm to 200mm. Even details like the colors were what they were... the first test frame showed both the tinted the starry sky the shade of blue that a half-full moon delivers, offset by the bright oranges and yellows of the fire (although I stabilized the white balance in an individual clip to prevent the camera from drifting as the fire changed, and somewhat across clips so they'd be compatible with each other). The music choice was made quickly, without a lot of thought, but the scales and repetition work well for time-lapse video. Perhaps most appropriately it's reminiscent of the work of Phillip Glass in the time-lapse movie "Koyaanisqatsi", a movie which used time-lapse images to document the natural beauty of our planet if the first half, and aspects of human life in the second half. The title of the song "The Time To Run" was accidentally fitting in that it's what most creatures appropriately do when faced with fire, perhaps slightly ironic in that it's what we are challenged to do in modern culture which has introduced the concept of ownership of land and the accumulation of more goods than we can carry on it. We've surrendered our ability to simply get out of the way of the fires which do and will happen in this forest. We view ourselves as on this earth, but not of it and within its full range of natural processes. Fires challenge that world view, and the notion that we are in control, to a degree that is justifiably terrifying. My thoughts and sympathy goes out to the people who have been affected by this fire, and to those who remain threatened as the full scope of this event plays out in the coming weeks.

        • Moon-Jupiter Conjunction, January 2013 (1000mm, 1080p, 15fps)

          00:14

          from Jeff Sullivan / Added

          Captured at one frame every 3 seconds at 400mm focal length on a Canon 5D Mark III DSLR, digitally cropped to the equivalent of roughly 1000mm at 1920 x 1080 resolution (with no loss of detail), converted to video at 15 frames per second. I think the motion can be smoothed out significantly by taking a 30fps copy of this and using slow motion processing software to fill in intermediate frames.

          • Mono Lake Sunset Full Moon Rise January 2013 (HD)

            00:10

            from Jeff Sullivan / Added

            Here's the full moon rise on Saturday, January 26, captured at Mono Lake in California's Eastern Sierra region. The moon rise turned out well, but there was some gusty wind, and given the lightness of the tripod I was using, I tried a configuration I don't often use, and added a camera bag hanging from the tripod with the intent of stabilizing it. It started swinging in the wind gusts, and moved the tripod more than the wind alone had. I'll need to bring a bungee cord so the bag can sit on the muddy, snowy ground next time. At least you get the gist of the event. Some day when I have more time I can align all of the exposures to each other in Photoshop, crop and re-save them, and the time-lapse will be saved.

            • Mono Lake Sunset Moon Rise Time-Lapse (1080p)

              00:14

              from Jeff Sullivan / Added

              Here's the result of my quick trip to Mono Lake last night, after I checked the Web cam at Mono Lake to confirm that I'd most likely be able to see the moon when it rose during sunset.. When I arrived, there were 4-5 carloads of photographers capturing the sunset, but none of them were there for the moon rise. I told them to stick around for another 10 minutes for the moon. I'm using this clip as a trial of Vimeo's 1080p HD display capability, using their recommended H.264 (MP4) encoding. It's stunning in AVI or MOV format on my laptop, but so far the video suffers significant degradation when displayed online. I have the "Tip Jar" featured enabled in case you'd like to support my pursuit of stunning images.

                This clip from 2004's Angel is especially fun to watch. For me.

                • Milky Way over Mono Lake Tufa

                  from Jeff Sullivan / Added

                  I woke up in the middle of the night in time for moonset so I could start this timelapse. I bundled up to handle the near freezing temperatures, hiked down to the lake, set up this composition, and triggered the sequence to start. As I started to walk back to my car, I checked the time... 3am! Apparently I fell back asleep before I got out, and didn't even know it! I'll have to go back to re-shoot this for a longer period of time.

                    To me this has the feel of looking back across the Milky Way toward earth, from an exotic distant planet.
