Minutes earlier, I had been outside my truck, leaning against it, head buried in my arms, frustration and failure washing over me. I wanted to quit. I got back in the car and as I drove, the pain got the better of me and the tears came. This past spring was a tough one. Supercell structure and beautiful tornadoes had been very hard to come by. In fact, the tornado in the opening of this film was the only good one I saw this entire year. I had been on the road longer than ever before. Driven more miles. I was away from my family for 12 straight days at one point, and when I got home, I had to tell them I was going back out 24 hours later for June 12th. It was just too good to pass up. It promised to be a day that I could get everything I had been hoping for this spring and I had no choice. My wife understood, even though I knew she wished I stayed home. And I wished it too. I knew right where I wanted to be that day. But this year I struggled with confidence in trusting my instincts. Maybe it was because the lack of good storms this spring made me question my skills, or maybe it was something else inside of me. Whatever the case, I let myself get twisted and unsure, and found myself 80 miles away from where I had wanted to be when the tornadoes started to drop and the best structure of the year materialized in the sky. The photos from Twitter and Facebook started to roll in and I knew I had missed everything. It may not be easy to understand why, but when you work as hard as I did this spring, a moment like that can break you. I felt like I let my wife down. But mostly I let myself down. I forgot who I was and that's not me. Or it shouldn't have been me. I failed myself. And it seemed like the easy choice to just give up and head for home. But I didn't. I'm not sure why, but the pain slowly began to subside. I realized it was only 4pm and the storms were still ongoing. Maybe if I could get in front of them the day could be saved. Ninety minutes later, I got out ahead and saw some of the best structure I'd seen all spring and a lightning show that was so incredible it's one of the very last clips of this film. And that's why this film is called "Pursuit." Because you can't give up. Keep chasing, keep pursuing. Whatever it is. That's the only way to get what you want. I learned something about myself on June 12th which carried over to the final few days of chasing this spring. I trusted myself again and those days were incredibly rewarding. This was who I'd been all along but had forgotten. I can't wait for next year. The work on this film began on March 28th and ended June 29th. There were 27 total days of actual chasing and many more for traveling. I drove across 10 states and put over 28,000 new miles on the ol' 4Runner. I snapped over 90,000 time-lapse frames. I saw the most incredible mammatus displays, the best nighttime lightning and structure I've ever seen, a tornado birth caught on time-lapse and a display of undulatus asperatus that blew my mind. Wall clouds, massive cores, supercell structures, shelf clouds...it ended up being an amazing season and I'm so incredibly proud of the footage in this film. It wasn't the best year in storm chasing history...but I got to chase storms and share it with you guys. All worth it. I wanted to do something new this year, so I worked with composer Peter Nanasi to develop a custom track for Pursuit. I'm super excited about it and loved the process of exchanging ideas and building the song as the editing of the film progressed. I am so thankful to Peter for what he came up with, I'm in love with this track! The time away from my family turned out to be over a month all told. I'm always and continually blessed by a wife who supports what I do and backs me completely. But not only do I have her to thank this spring, but also her parents who hung around for a good chunk of May and early June, to help out wherever needed, watch the kids, run errands and generally be there for Jina. I don't have enough words to convey how appreciative I am for them being around while I was gone. I think that's about it. I could write a lot more, but I'd rather you watch the film and hopefully have a taste of what I saw this spring. There is nothing quite like strong inflow winds, the smell of rain and the crack of thunder. I miss being out there already. I hope you enjoy and I'll do my best to answer any questions in the comments below! Technical Details: I used two Canon 5DSR's along with a Canon 11-24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 135mm and Sigma Art 50mm. Manfrotto tripods. The final product was edited in Lightroom with LR Timelapse, After Effects and Premiere Pro.

品味纽约 延时摄影

10 天内我们共拍摄了 65000 张照片,容量达 2.6 TB 之多。虽然用的是目前配置最好的 iMac,但是最后只有 3 分钟的成片我们却用了 36 个小时来渲染。 This is the third episode of our independent „A Taste of ...“ time lapse series. In September 2016 we visited this awesome city to try out some new time lapse stuff. It took us 10 days, a lot of burgers and one helicopter ride to produce this video. 10 days is very little time to discover this city of endless opportunities, so we hardly slept anything and shot day and night for this time lapse film. The city that never sleeps indeed! The Taxishot: Over the 10 days we took photos of yellow cabs whenever we had time to from as many different angles as possible. So we gathered 2000 (!) photos in total we had to sort afterwards and compile to a hyperlapse around a cab in post production. It took us 5 whole days in post production to get this one shot. Technical Details: In 10 days we shot 65.000 Photos taking up 2,6 TB of our hard drives. The final 3 minute video took 36h to render on the best equipped iMac available.

神奇的西摩山

作者从第一次踏上位于温哥华南部的西摩山后就开始对它念念不忘。历经3年反复地探索与拍摄,终于拍到了它独特而又神秘的一面。 The day I first set foot on Mount Seymour, I knew it would have a lasting profound impact on me. Located on Vancouver's North Shore, the mountain looks down over the vibrant and pulsing city to the South, while the Coast Mountains stretch endlessly to the North. For 3 years, I returned on and off to seek inspiration, and to shoot as much timelapse as possible. Every time, I found a new and unique display of magic. I never tire of seeing the lights, the colours, the sunrise, the sunset, and just sitting back at peace above the world. This is the culmination of years of practice, countless pounds of equipment carried, many sleepless nights, and 100s of hours of editing. Enjoy! Music: Makes the Wind (feat. REMMI & Yung Youth) by Super Duper - licensed via The Music Bed (musicbed.com) Equipment used: Nikon D7000, Nikon 18-55 VR, Nikon 55-200 VR Canon 7Dm2, Canon 24-70 f/4 L IS, Canon 70-200 f/4 L IS, Tokina 11-16 2.8 DX, Canon 24 1.4 L Sony a7s, Sigma 20 1.4 All clips available for licensing in 4k. Almost all have been sped up beyond their original timelapse form for this film, and are 10-15 seconds in length each.

If you are planning on hiking or camping in the park, make sure you are familiar with the park's own rules regarding human activities http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/mt_seymour/. Even if you are going on a day hike, it is crucial to carry the 10 essentials and leave a detailed trip plan with someone reliable http://www.northshorerescue.com/education/what-to-bring/. There have been far too many rescues in the North Shore over the past few years. With proper preparation and knowledge, the beauty of these mountains is available for all to enjoy.

漩涡|Vorticity

血、汗、泪、喜悦、长途跋涉、艰难困苦、失败、错过、睡眠不足、惊喜、愈加珍贵的友谊还有许久未见的家人。当梦想完成时,回头看,这一切都值得吗? Blu-Ray discs available here: http://www.mikeolbinski.com/shop/ Song by Kerry Muzzy: "Found" (Available on iTunes (http://bit.ly/MO_TM3) and Amazon (http://bit.ly/Found_KM) - please support him!) Follow me: mikeolbinski.com / twitter.com/mikeolbinski / facebook.com/mikeolbinskiphotography / instagram.com/mikeolbinski --------------------------- Blood. Sweat. Tears. Joy. That's what this spring was for me. The miles, the grind, the failing, the epic days missed, the lack of sleep, the jubilation, the friendships strengthened, and the time away from my family. And when the chasing was all done...wondering, was worth it all? Heck yeah it was. I had three goals this spring: Get a tornado on time-lapse, capture the best footage I possibly could, and chase as much as my schedule would allow. That ended up totalling 18 chase days. 20,000 miles driven. Almost 60,000 time-lapse frames shot. Nine total states. Hours and hours and hours of editing. All between April 15th and June 15th. And the tornado? Not only did I get one, but I got six more. On April 15th, the very first day out, I saw two tornadoes in the Texas Panhandle. May 9th was Wynnewood and Sulphur in Oklahoma (both in this film), as well as Trinidad on June 13th in Colorado. And while most tornadoes will be obvious in the film, you'll have to use a keen eye to spot the first two, which appear at 2:08 and 2:13. The Wynnewood tornado, which you will see at the very end of the film, was one of the most surreal moments of my life. I was so focused on keeping up with the storm that day, that I barely realized that I had captured what I'd been working so hard to get. I texted my wife a few photos and simply said "Baby I did it". It wasn't until she responded "Babe, it's beautiful. I'm so happy for you" that I completely lost it - live stream going on in the truck, people watching, and tears streaming down my face. But that's how much this spring meant to me, and how hard I was going. Most of the time exhausted. My typical routine would be to leave Phoenix sometime in late afternoon, drive all night, sleep an hour or two in the truck and then chase the next few days. And then drive home all night again. I did whatever I could to to minimize the time away from my family. Heck, I once even shot a wedding all day, left the venue, and drove all night to chase. I didn't want to miss anything this spring. What's awesome to me is that some of my best stuff came from marginal days, where it took some effort and crazy luck to get sick storm structures. Those were the surprises - amazing clips worthy of the final product despite the chase day starting out subpar. Combined together with everything else, I think it's some of my best footage to date! Technical note...this film marks the first time I used my Canon 5DSR and 11-24 for time-lapse, which I bought right before the spring started (Thank you Martin Heck for the help!). I'm not 100% sure of course, but I believe the tornadoes in the film may be some of the first ever captured in 8K resolution. The 50 megapixels that camera offers was huge for being able to zoom into certain shots and still maintain fantastic quality and sharpness. Couldn't be happier with that beast. I also used my trusty 5D3 for the tighter shots, with the 35mm, 50mm or 135mm. I have to mention Kerry Muzzey here...he has surpassed being kind to me. This is the 3rd or 4th time he's donated a song to one of my projects and I'm forever grateful. His music is powerful, haunting at times, and always, always perfect for the story I want to tell. This year I knew right away that "Found" was the song I would use. Please visit the links above to support his work! There are a lot of names to thank which are listed at the end of the film. I owe them all so much for helping me this spring. Nowcasting, making me turn around when I was headed to Montana, teaching me about forecasting, helping me choose the right new camera, editing input, and just being good friends. I am very blessed to have some amazing people around me! Most of all to my wife, Jina. She knows...every year I'm gone longer. I'm sure next year could be worse. But through it all, even when it's really tough, she's always right behind me. Making things work when I'm away. There are never enough words to cover how amazing she is. But she knows and I know - this film wouldn't happen without her. I think that's about it! Thanks to everyone for the kind words of support all year. I truly hope you enjoy this one! On to Monsoon 3! --------------------------- Technical Details: Captured with A CANON 5DSR, CANON 5D3, Canon 11-24mm f/4, 16-35mm, 35mm, 50mm, 135mm Processed using Lightroom, LR Timelapse, After Effects and Premiere Pro Most clips available in 8K resolution, as well as 4K.

光耀约塞米特国家公园

再来一发国家公园的延时作品,清幽缓慢的乐曲与广袤无垠的星空,一部典型的视听瑜伽开始了 I am a destination visual artist who specializes in photography, timelapse cinematography, & filmmaking.  I love to travel, so if you have a project in some far flung location, lets talk. Yosemite National Park, the High Sierra, and the Eastern Sierra are some of the most beautiful places on earth. Ever since I serendipitously won a trip to Yosemite when I was 18, the beautiful Range of Light has captured my heart and become my home. Nothing brings me more joy than to share this life changing beauty with others. Ever since I became fascinated with timelapse photography almost 2 years ago, after seeing the work of Tom Lowe, I’ve wanted to do a piece on Yosemite and the Sierra. Now after almost 2 years of shooting, I’m thrilled to share. I hope you enjoy my vision of my home, the majestic Yosemite & Sierra. Best viewed Full Screen with Sound. If you would like to license any of my clips or hire me to shoot for you, please be in touch. I do have 4k footage available for licensing.

澳洲追日影像日记

2013年5月4日~20日,西澳洲追逐5月10日日环食之行延时摄影合集。种种原因只制作了英文版本。 器材: 佳能 5D Mark II x 2 佳能 EF16-35mm f/2.8L II USM 佳能 EF70-200mm f/4L IS USM 佳能 EF50mm f/1.4 USM 佳能 EF15mm f/2.8 鱼眼 音乐:(均为创意公用授权条款授权的免办税音乐) mindthings – Human Feelings (http://www.jamendo.com/en/track/96702/human-feelings) Sky & Clouds – Gyro Experiment 1 (http://www.jamendo.com/en/track/512205/gyro-experiment-1) An annular solar eclipse swept across Australia on May 10, 2013. Together with 4 other fellow Malaysian astronomy hobbyists, we embarked on a road trip in Western Australia to chase the eclipse at it’s best – a sunrise “ring of fire”. 16 days, 4000km+ of road travel, the trip covered some of the most deserted and most beautiful places of Western Australia. Despite the unstable weather, we were blessed with an unforgettably jaw-dropping “ring of fire”, mesmerisingly colourful moments when the sun dipped to the vast, flat Indian Ocean, and joyful nights when the milky way shined at its full glory far away from city lights. This 5-minute-long video documents the entire trip in the form of time-lapse, including mostly my humble and amateurish attempts on day-to-night holy-grail transitions. Dolly movements and HDR techniques were used in certain footages. Few daytime footages were taken due to time constraints. Special thanks to a Malaysian friend of mine for kindly lending his Canon 16-35 lens to me. Overall the footages can’t really do justice to the real scenes we saw, and some truly amazing photo-opporutunities were ruined by wet weather. Anyways one needs to be physically there to enjoy the best of a solar eclipse, and, this beautiful state of Australia. Enjoy!
