  • Title: Surreal Journey
  • Description: Featured in News Corp's The Daily on April 1, 2012!

    From the late-night departures in inclement weather to the exploring of distant unmarked roads, my pursuit of photography is often a "Surreal Journey".

    This was produced from footage and time-lapse frames taken in the Northwest Territories, Wyoming, Washington State, and Montana.

    Editing some of this was a bit of a challenge when it came to some of the time-lapse sequences. Depending on the static elements in the frame, I batch-processed each frame through Photoshop actions which involved a complicated dance of masking and tonality adjustments, each specific to the scene in question. For the black-and-white clips, I used a combination of Nik Software's Silver Efex Pro and Photoshop actions to accomplish what I needed.

    Nearly all footage used was captured with the 5D Mark II, the EF 35mm 1.4L, and the Zeiss 21mm 2.8 ZE, which is by far, the best wide angle lens I've ever used.

    Music is "Scorpio", composed by Simon Wilkinson of www.thebluemask.com.
