A friend of ours, Mark D., brought to my attention this absolutely stunning three and 1/2 minute video of time lapse photography, created by Dustin Farrell of Arizona. On his home page on Vimeo, Farrell tell us
“Every frame of this video is a raw still from a Canon 5D2 DSLR and processed with Adobe software. In Volume 2 I again show off my beautiful home state of Arizona and I also made several trips to Utah. This video has some iconic landmarks that we have seen before. I felt that showing them again with motion controlled HDR and/or night timelapse would be a new way to see old landmarks.”
After a bit of research, I’ve learned that Farrell’s work has been catching a lot of attention these days, with newspapers and blogs around the world writing about it and in the process, running out of superlatives with which to describe it. Once you see it, you’ll understand what I mean. And watch for the subtle panning in addition to the time lapse photography.
Enjoy this in full screen, high-res with the volume up, and let us know what adjectives you would use to describe Farrell’s work. This is guaranteed to inspire you to dust off your camera and to go create some amazing work of your own. Posted by Ed
