Man am I tired! Just spent three days out in Joshua Tree shooting stock and testing time lapse. I can hardly wait to start processing and editing! Right after I pay some bills and finish a couple estimates. Stay tuned for the story and pictures in the next couple days…
Have been experimenting lately with time lapse imagery. Here’s a test I did of some wilting lettuce on spec for a local ad agency. This is a 9-day time lapse of a wilting head of Napa cabbage. I left in the time lapse portion of me setting up the shot in the beginning because I thought it looked cool. The experiment ended when the light source bulb burned out.
We woke the morning of our prep day looking at 16″ of fresh powder that fell the night before. The grip truck hadn’t even made it to Mammoth. We told them to stay in Bishop overnight and they’d come up the next morning. Here we are arriving on location in Mammoth.
OK – So we recently hit the road to Mammoth. A fun six-hour one-way road trip with my producer, my assistant Tim and my agency client. I know what you’re thinking…six hours in the car with your client! But this client is super-cool and fun to be with so the ride just blew by.
As we turned right on Minaret Road in Mammoth and rounded the corner past the Village here is what we saw.
Incredible! But hey I was worried since we needed no snow on our driveway for a snow shot of a car in front of a cabin. (yes that’s right – legal team of manufacturer stated no snow in the driveway for safety reasons) And it was 23 degrees and dumping! I knew it would be OK though since we had a team of snow melter on standby for the morning to melt the snow and dry it off the driveway if need be.
