“District Nights” by Drew Geraci
This piece is all about DC at dusk and night – concentrating on the monuments and historial buildings on the mall. During the making of this time-lapse, Drew Geraci was hassled/stopped 27 times by DC police and received 5 parking tickets. That’s pretty much how it goes in DC.
Shot on: Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 II, Canon 50mm f/1.4, Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 II, Dynamic Perception Stage Zero
“Emirates Winter” by Lewis De Mesa
A project that started in January 2011 and completed shooting on May 2011. My goal was simply to explore and look for interesting unique sceneries around the UAE, and capture it’s beauty with time-lapse photography. Winter season plays a big part of my journey, as it’s the best time to chase visible fluffy clouds with a true blue sky that only exist to the human eye at this time of the year.
I took around 300,000 images and traveled some 4000kms going around the cities of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Al Ain, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah. I ended up going more than once on few locations which mostly I searched the coordinates online. There’s some tiny little setbacks like wrong coordinates, clouds disappearance, being turned down to take photos (after a 2 hour drive), miscalculated driving time, sets of glowing eyes in the mountain, some wild animal noise in the dark (well it’s not really a hindrance, but it is abit alarming) and few unnecessary technical issues, which is typically part of trying out and learning something new 🙂
The whole trip was very exhausting and time consuming, but it’s all worth it in the end. I’ve seen so many beautiful places here in the UAE, plus I enjoyed all the long drives as well as being close to nature and far away from city for awhile. I’m hoping to find more time and discover new places and capture it again on video 🙂

“Norway” by Morten Berg
The making of this film has been a real challenge. Living in Oslo (250-500 km away from the scenery portrayed in this film), I had to make 11 trips to fullfill this project. I had to visit and revisit locations which were not easily reached (at least not when you carry a heavy load of photo gear).
Equipment used in this film: Dynamic Perception Dolly, Enhanced Rotary Table, Little Bramper, Canon 5d Mark 2, Canon 40d, Canon 24 f1/4 MK2, Canon 24-105 f/4 is usm, After Effects CS5.5
