Timelapse / 5d Experiments & Inspiring Videos

So over the course of the last few days I’ve started experimenting more and more with my camera. As I mentioned in my previous blog, I’ve always been very intrigued by timelapse…  And thus far had only put together the 5 second piece.  I should also mention that I am currently missing an ESSENTIAL piece [...]


Shooting with the Canon 5d Mark II + Gear Wish List + 2010

So I thought it appropriate to take a moment out, and detail some of the gear I currently own, what I’d really like to snag (because I OBVIOUSLY don’t have enough… ), and what 2010 has been so far, and what it might have in store for me!  Onward! The Gear: First off, I’m now [...]

Somewhat remiss that I haven’t had a chance to update www.sip2drink.com especially considering I left it hanging on a “1 of 2″ post on an event that’s come and gone.  Oops.  Time’s a shifty s.o.b. Speaking of www.sip2drink.com, I’m looking for contributors.  So if you [...]
