See Foggy San Francisco Like Never Before

I found this video by Simon Christen a while back and have been mesmerized by it ever since. The Oakland photographer and filmmaker transforms the day-in-day-out beauty and mystique of the Bay Area’s weather patterns into rolling landscapes and water-like motions.

Adrift is a beautiful film that illustrates the magical effect time lapse work can have in making something ordinary into something otherworldly.

Freeway – HDR

Freeway - HDR

An HDR image of Interstate 5 cutting through the north side of Seattle. Shot with my Rokinon 8mm fisheye lens.

Usually Photomatix does a fine job of giving me the HDR effect that I like — surrealistic enough to make you wonder how it’s done, but not enough to make you question the scene’s existence. This time, I blended two tonemapped versions of this photo, one of the sky and background separately, with another of the traffic to get the prefect balance I wanted.
