Creating a Star-Lapse at Horseshoe Bend with “The Radian”

Way back when I was in Djenne, Mali I first experimented with star-lapse photography.  I was extremely happy with the result even back then on my first try.  Fast forward 2 or 3 years now and I really haven’t done it since.  The reason is that I had been reluctant was because I didn’t want to push the sensor of my only camera.  Now, however, I have a Canon 6D, and I’ve been using my old 60D for some time-lapse...

Finding Great Light in Monument Valley

I’m too lazy to check, but I’m fairly sure this 2 week departure has been the longest I’ve gone on my blog between posts.  Not bad for 5+ years right?  The truth is, this US road trip has been so demanding. It’s been physically, emotionally, and financially draining.  At the end of each day, it’s been so hard to find energy or time to edit photos/video, write, and publish articles.  I know, I know,...
