Odds and Ends
This is a small collection of various personal projects I’ve worked on in recent years ranging from photography to time-lapse video to beard and mousetache growing. I hope you enjoy them.
A few years ago I spent some time learning time lapse video techniques. Here are a few videos shot from a balcony overlooking Peachtree Street in Atlanta, GA.
Foggy night in Atlanta
I ran the camera from about 1am to 10am. The moon looks amazing and I'm not quite sure what some of the lights that dart across the sky are.
Atlanta Pride Parade
For this one I used a super clamp to suspend my camera off the balcony railing to get an overhead shot. Photos taken every 3 seconds.
Sunset to Sunrise
Photos taken every 10 seconds from sunset to sunrise. The night gets a little long but is still quite beautiful.
In the land of beard and moustache
From 2009 to 2011 I participated in an online celebration of moustache called Moustache May and a beard growing contest called Whiskerino. These celebrations involved people around the world posting themed photos daily showing off their beards and moustaches. While facial hair was required, Whiskerino and Moustache May were mostly about creativity and good people. Here are a few of my favorite photos from Moustache May and Whiskerino. Note that Photoshop is not allowed.
The acrylic paint did not clean up easily.
Long exposure and flash photography to create a faux double exposure effect.
Theme: Upside Down
Long exposure with flash fired twice. Once with the camera right side up and once with the camera upside down.
While not an official theme, I decided to create a rainbow of photos using different colored shirts and flash color gels.
