Ten-Years Ago (19-September-2008) — Utah

Gone to See America 2008. Moab Utah Photography Workshop with Winston Hall. Day 5: Arches National Park.

Time-Lapse Video of a Hike down Park Avenue in Arches National Park. Winston Hall talked me into carrying a tripod on my shoulders so the Nikon D3 camera would be above my head. We set the camera up with a 16 mm f/2.8 fisheye lens and had it take images every 15 seconds. I used the ~850 images to make a time-lapse video of the hike. This was before the days of the lightweight GoPro cameras. All of the images have been re-processed with Capture One Pro for the new version of the time-lapse video.

Thanks to Jim Batey, I’ve added an image he took of me wearing the Tripod Headcam.
