Georgia Tech vs. Tulane Basketball Time-lapse

Not long after Georgia Tech asked me to shoot a time-lapse of one of their football games, they asked me to shoot another one of the school’s inaugural basketball game at the newly renovated McCamish Pavilion.

I went to the arena a few days before the game to find some good vantage points. I set up my D300 + Tokina 11-16mm lens with a Gorillapod in the press box, and then I walked around the arena during the game with my D7000 + Tokina 11-16 and a tripod.

It’s been a lot of fun to shoot these sports events as time-lapses. They’ve been quite challenging because you really have to be on your toes, and I was constantly running from point to point trying to get shots of the action. Little did I know that I would soon be doing another sports-related time-lapse! I’m currently editing a big one that spanned three days. LOTS of photos to stitch together (30,887 to be exact) and I’ll hopefully have it ready here in the next week. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, here’s the basketball time-lapse. Hope you enjoy!

Georgia Aquarium

So I live literally five minutes from the Georgia Aquarium. I can see it from my 18th floor balcony in Midtown, Atlanta. And as the world’s largest aquarium and the only place outside of Asia to house whale sharks, I figured it would be a waste not to head over there and shoot some video. 

Now bear with me… this is only the second video I’ve ever shot, so I’m still learning the ins and outs. In fact, I’m heading over to the Canon Filmmakers Live workshop tomorrow in Roswell, hosted by Philip Bloom. There are still tickets left, so if you’re in the area, come on by. Should be a good time!

Anyways, here’s my video of the Georgia Aquarium. Enjoy!
