    I was filming some footage for a history doc at the oldest brick house in NC this week. The clouds behind the house looked pretty cool so I decided to shoot a time-lapse sequence. The brown clouds are a result of farmers burning their wheat stubble.

    As I'm filming, the sky gets darker and darker. This was what rolled thru on top of me. I got the whole thing coming in on HD video at 1 frame/second. It looks freaking amazing!

    The above pic was shot around 9 pm.

    Bonus shots of my "swamp dolly" I built.

    I used two filters on the camera to get this "sunset" look

    That looks like some fun gear to play with!

    What's the dolly for though?

    To do dolly shots, ie to move the camera during a shot. I built this to do dolly shots where I can't set up a normal dolly.

    Look for it in about three years or so when the whole series is completed.

    we had some crazy clouds, but by the time I got home, got my slr, and came back to campus, the sun had changed the backlighting and the look was gone.


    I really need to get an lx3/g10 or something I can keep in my bag. About 5 times a day I think "that would be a cool shot"

    No. It's just a monitor. But it's a very accurate monitor.
