Shot with a 5D MK II and a 7D
Zeiss 35, 50 1.4, 85 1.2, Canon 15mm, 24mm, 24-105, 70-300mm,
MOCA Kessler Cineslider, revolution head, and various DIY contraptions I've built for zoom motor control.
I sought out to capture the electric radiance of Los Angeles at night.
It took me 6 months of on and off shooting to finish this project and I've learned a couple things along the way.
First off, LA might be the entertainment capital of the world, but it sure is difficult to shoot around downtown without having homeland security officers, police, or security take notice and harass you. Know your shooting rights!
Shooting time lapses is a labor of love and a study in patience.
