Two nights ago I tried my first night hyperlapse.  I've done plenty of hyperlapses before but they have all been during the day.  My hesitation for a night hyperlapse was the use of a tripod (especially when I travel).  Usually I shoot hyperlapses hand-held during the day where my shutter speeds can be quick enough … Continue reading Pittsburgh, PA – First Night Hyperlapse

September 11th – 15 Year Anniversary

Yesterday I went to Liberty State Park in New Jersey for the 15th anniversary of the September 11th attacks.  The day was totally surreal and I'm still amazed it was 15 years ago.  I was hoping to see the Tribute in Light that shines above the city emulating where the towers used to stand.  We … Continue reading September 11th – 15 Year Anniversary
