Time Lapse Fun

Here is a time-lapse compilation video that I made while on my East Coast trip. Sadly all good things must come to an end and now I am on my way back to the West Coast and was in CLT typing up this draft as I head to LAX. Anyway, let me know what you think!

Thanks for all the hospitality! Can’t wait to come back East!

EDC Day 3, I am the one who knocks.

EDC Day 3 ended last Sunday and I’m only getting this post out now, Wednesday. Oh well, it was a long journey back to the Bay and I was spent. Anyway, Enjoy!

EDC Day 2, OMG!

What another awesome day at EDC! W started the day a little late, didn’t get past the gate till about ten but still managed to see a ton of headliners and have some fun.

On a tiny journalist news reporting note, there was a small isolated fire last night that involved a golf cart, which was probably caused by a short circuit. Firefighters responded to the scene quickly and were able to extinguish the flame before anyone could get hurt and too damper the mood of the revelers.

I did make a small time lapse that didn’t turn out to well due to the lighting condition. However if you’d like to view the time-lapse video, you can view it here.

When we got back to our hotel we checked out the Bamboo Pool here at the Cosmopolitan where we played around with the GoPro to get some cool and neat shots. Now I’m off to get some rest; it’s about noon and hasn’t slept since we got back.

EDC Day 1

First day of EDC was amazing, music and venue was to die for, but very hot. Couldn’t stay under the Circuit Grounds to long cause of the heat trapped under the tent. I stayed well hydrated and had to step away from the stages a few times to cool down. Wished that my GoPro battery hadn’t died, or invested in a second battery pack, because I was unable to capture as much video as I would have like. I did miss the large meet up yesterday at 9 and was disappointed about that, was in the middle of R3hab’s set where I lost the track of time. Anyway, had a blast and still have 2 more days of amazing experience to look forward to!

Time Lapse Test Drive

Went for a test drive around the City to with my GoPro to see the different qualities of the recording.

GoPro Case

With my first vlog, I decided that it was time to organize the parts for my GoPro. Before organizing my GoPro and its accessories, I just kept the GoPro and everything that came along with it in a Nike drawstring bag.

But after tonight everything goes in this nice padded case that I received for Christmas. Below you can see how I store my GoPro Hero 2 now.

GoPro Storage. Top: First impression upon opening of the case. Middle: Unobstructed view of the case with the head mount to the side. Bottom:  GoPro accessories.

In the top image you can see what the case opens up to. The head strap doesn’t have a home in the case and just lays lose within the case. Once you move the head strap out of the way, you have a full view to all the pieces within the case.

What’s inside (from the bottom image starting from top left going clockwise): Suction cup mount, spare GoPro housing with extended back, GoPro in a skeleton housing, LCD back, bolts (6), pivot arms (4), tripod mount, bolt, USB charger, Amity, and USB cord.

There is plenty of room to add more accessories to the case, even another GoPro. Also I plan on including a micro USB cord to charge the Amity battery extender and picking up a Wifi back or another GoPro battery.

What do you folks think?

My First Vlog!

Hi Folks!

I have had a GoPro for quite some time and recently just decided to start vlogging. After some trials and errors, I finally decided to just record and post my first vlog. My first vlog is unedited but in the future I’m sure that I’ll pick up a video editing software to make future vlog post appear more polished.

Enjoy and feed back is welcomed.

A Patchwork of Videos of the Bay Bridge

Last weekend my brother and I had time to check out the Bay Lights. I only had my GoPro Hero2 on me which I used to capture movements of the world’s largest art installation. Sadly the GoPro doesn’t record urban night shots that well. Instead of uploading an ok video of the Bay Lights, I figured that I’d throw it in a mix of videos and try to tell a story with it. Let me know what you folks think about. Thanks!

Progress on the Bay Bridge

A Work in Progress

I’ll be going out to Yerba Buena Island today after work to take some photos of the Bay Bridge. I’ve been wanting to take pictures of both the San Francisco span and Oakland span of the Bay Bridge ever since I posted pictures of the bridge on this blog. Joe Ercoli, Tom Finale, James Perez, Paul Giani, Jorman Koon, and I will be making the trek around the island. This time I’ll be taking my GoPro HERO2 and a POS Canon PowerShot ELPH 100 HS since I no longer have my Canon Rebel XSi.

With the GoPro, I’m going to attempt to do a time lapse of the sun setting in the west with the San Francisco Bay Bridge span in the foreground. I haven’t had the chance to pick up the LCD Back for the GoPro so I’ll be shooting blind, technically. I’ve played around with the GoPro enough that I have an idea of what I’ll be capturing.

Once the sun set, we’ll be heading to the east end of the island to take shots of the Oakland span that has both the  new Bay Bridge and current Bay Bridge section. There has been a lot of progress done to the new span of the bridge  since the last time that I was there on Yerba Buena Island. The bridge now have cables hanging down from the main cable.

Th new Bay Bridge; its Tower and Cables

The photo above was taken from an ACTransit bus as I was heading to the East Bay. So as you can tell from the Google Map photo from the very top of this post, that when compared to the Instagram photo above, there has been a ton of progress on the new span.

I plan on shooting the Oakland span with the POS Canon. I’m worried about the quality of photos that I’ll get. I hope that it wont be a waste of time trying to shoot with the POS. Actually, I know it wont be a true waste of time since I’ll be seeing friends that I haven’t seen in few months.  I do know that the POS is not a DSLR and that the quality will not be as good.

We are just have to stay tuned to see how everything turned out. So stay tuned. Maybe if time permits I’ll post something from tonight’s photo adventure later early tomorrow morning.

Video Test

So I just got a GoPro Hero2 early this week and I have been like a little kid on Christmas! I need to find a video editing software and play around more w/ the GoPro to figure out what’s the best way to get a good composition with it.

So here’s a quick mash up of some old and new stuff placed together
