Time lapse fun with the New York Waterways ferries on the Hudson River.
Recently I had the opportunity to work with the legendary banjo player Tony Trischka. To help launch his new album, Great Big World, We documented a day in his recent tour. Throughout my career the thing I have enjoyed the most is the chance to be around greatness. Be it medicine, sports, art, music or any other field, greatness is an inspiring thing to see and I got to hang with a whole lot of it for a day. The stop motion and time lapse piece we created is now featured on the home page of Tony's website. Check it out and check out his new album.
Here is a very quick time lapse of the Twitter banner going up on the New York Stock Exchange the night before the company's initial public offering.
A new time lapse creation with shots of New York's Times Square
I recently spent a few days shooting the MLB All Star Week FanFest at the Javitz Center. While I was shooting stills I also took a little time to shoot some time lapse and stop motion sequences. I put it together in this piece I call FanFest in a Minute. My guess is it is about 1500 photos in all.
My latest endeavor (obsession) is time lapse photography. About a year ago I started playing around with stop motion video of my kids, now I am trying to combine the two . After playing around a little, my first real attempt is done. It is a short one minute marketing, promotional piece for Fellan Florist, a boutique florist on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
I was working around some photographers and reporters that are a bit younger than me recently. They were talking about what they had done the previous evening. There were bars and clubs and restaurants and very late nights involved. I started to think about what I had done the night before which at first glanced seemed considerably less exciting. When I thought more about it though, I realized how great my night was. I realized that before I know it my 5 year old won't be 5 anymore, my 2 year old won't be two anymore and my evenings won't be the same. Everyone always tells us how fast our children will grow up and I am starting to really see it. I want to hold on and I want to appreciate it, so the next night I made this time lapse. So to all those folks out there partying, this is what evenings at our house look like. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
