After work I took the scenic route home that ran through Alice’s and dropped me off at Crystal Spring’s Reservoir. Before hoping onto the freeway home, I made time for a quick time lapse.
Last September I finally had the opportunity and privilege to do an activity that many of my siblings do, that is ride motorcycles legally.
In the past month the marine layer has had San Francisco under a blanket of fog. However on Tuesday the City had a reprieve from the fog that created the most beautiful summer day that San Francisco has had all year.
With no fog or cloud insight, I took the opportunity to capture a time lapse of sunset. Sadly the sun had begun its descent into the Pacific by the time I arrived at Ocean Beach, leaving about an hour of sunlight left.
Well I was up late Tuesday night, so I decided to play around with my GoPro and film a time lapse video of the sunrise. Sadly the weather wasn’t cooperating so the time lapse didn’t look to spectacular. And to be honest the view from where I was filming wasn’t so great.
I’ve been wanting to do more time lapse with the GoPro but still need to figure out the best formula for capturing good content and getting the right framing of the subject. The best way that I’m going to learn is from experience which means that I need to get out more and go shooting.
Until next time!
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 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!
Went for a test drive around the City to with my GoPro to see the different qualities of the recording.
Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below.
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!
A few days ago, after work, I headed over to both the Yerba Buena Island and Treasure Island to meet up with some friends (Joe Ercoli, Tom Finale, Paul Giani, … Continue reading Good Times on the Islands
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.
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.
