I was requested to take new photos of the Rock Bridge Venues for a new Rock Bridge website that will launch in the next few weeks. Here are my favorite shots from the project.
I wanted to do my best to balance the interior and exterior light so the buildings had a bright and welcoming feeling. This meant arriving at each site before sunrise and running around to turn all the lights on then find the best composition for each shot. At any given site I had a window of about 5-10 minutes to get the right light and shot. Thankfully the weather cooperated and I was a to get some sharp shots.
I use the sunrise/sunset app to help my determine the best time to arrive. I have found that half way between civil twilight and sunrise to be about the balancing point to make these shots.
Another sunset, but this time I thought I would shoot through the field instead on top of it. I think in the future I will stick to above the weeds, but it was worth a shot. Hopefully more posts to come in the next few weeks. I have been neglecting pursuitvideo.com for a while. I might even update it with a new theme. Who knows, just another sunset for tonight.
Sometimes I find myself intrigued with what a “real” timelapse looks like still shot followed by still shot versus a video speed up to cover the same amount of time. I think both have valid points, but the flexibility of a raw still photo with 18 megapixels allows for a ton more control in the post production process. Continue reading Sunset Test
This Sunday coming home for lunch the light was simply beautiful. I uploaded a few of my favorite images to flickr.

The beauty makes me wonder how anyone can deny that there is a God. Click the image above to see the full image.
