He's done an excellent job of showing off the premium texture, shape, and design of these amazing boats. I was somewhat surprised to discover (by looking at the EXIF data) that they were shot on a 5D Mark II. They have a certain look that made me think they were shot on a medium or large format system.

I think RedHeads have the most fun. 

My wife was helping me do some lighting tests in our Idaho Falls photo studio last night. She’s a good sport.

I’ve had a great time capturing timelapses for a few years now. I even got into the motion controlled motorized slider scene and added a pan tilt head after seeing Tom Lowe’s “Timescapes.” 

But recently I’ve discovered the are of “Hyperlapse.” It’s just like timelapse only you’re moving the camera much more drastically than a motion controlled timelapse. 

I’ve found that it works best when you center your focus point on the same spot between each move. It’s a little bit of trial and error as some motions paths don’t seem to work as well as others. 

Most of the time I’ll shoot on a tripod and then move the tripod about 3 steps between each shot, trying to keep a rhythm so that clouds, people, etc move fluidly when the hyperlapse is compiled. 

So far I’ve only used this method on buildings, but I plan to try it in a landscape setting somewhere near Idaho Falls soon.

My boss is currently in Vienna Austria and shot these hyperlapses on his iphone handheld! I just ran the image sequences threw After Effects and used the Warp Stabilizer tool to stabilize the footage.

At first glance, working as a full time videographer & photographer in Idaho Falls might sound like a really limiting place to live and work. I’ve found that this is far from the truth! Not only have there been a wealth of interesting people and projects I’ve got to work with in this area, but I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to travel a good amount as well. 

Last week’s assignment - Travel to Miami, Florida and capture images & video of a basketball skills camp. Ok, twist my arm ;)

The focus of this trip was shooting video for a short documentary, but I found the time to grab a few candid portraits of a couple of the students during their practice. 

The next morning we were able to get down to the beach and shoot some product shots during the amazing Florida sunrise. Just because I’m a photographer based in Idaho Falls, doesn’t mean my opportunities are limited, and the same is true for you.
