New Work: Advanced Photography

I'm a bit late with showing off this body of work (since they were turned in last December, before Winter Break), but....better late than never!  As usual, my students from last semester turned in some amazing photography!!  Please feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of the post to show your support.  More new work by this semester's students will be posted in a few weeks.  Their first critique is right around the corner!

Time-lapse Photography

Time-lapse photography (<--- click on the link to read more about it on Wikipedia!) is a really amazing photographic technique.  Time-lapse photography appears to be like video but at its essence it is still photography.  Like video, multiple "frames" are taken and viewed in rapid succession.  Depending on how much time has "lapsed" hundreds to possibly tens of thousands of images can be used to create the final image.  Actions or events that would take hours to happen stream by in mere minutes, speeding up the world and sometimes making the mundane incredibly fascinating!!

Please enjoy these 5 awesome examples of time-lapse photography that I (and many of our students) have viewed over the past year:
