Turkey Day Time-Lapse

This Thanksgiving we all got together at my dad's house and had a feast! It was great to just plop down at one spot all day and not have to bounce around like in the past. I'm so thankful we can all get along and have a blast! I recently borrowed a Go Pro 2 from my friends over at Feral Motion and thought I'd give the time-lapse feature a try. It was incredibly easy to use and the pictures are pretty high quality! I really wanna get one of these things. I downloaded "Time-Lapse" from the Mac App Store for $1.99 and stitched 2700 photos together. Then I dumped the movie file into Final Cut Pro where I was able to cut it a bit, add tunes/text and turn it to some good ol' black and white. Check out the video below and let me know what you think.

Enjoy the holiday weekend ya'll!

Indian Summer

My girlfriend Priya had some family in from England and Canada this past weekend. We all got together over at her mom's house and indulged in a beautifully cooked Indian meal prepared by her mom and aunt. It was a beautiful day and so great to be outside and just relaxing with family. Priya's Uncle Sat, has been a photographer for over thirty years and I absolutely love chatting with him about the old times and the new. We watched a slideshow compiled of 257 images that Sat had a story for each and every one. It was incredible to see photos from the 50's, 60's and 70's! Priya's grandfather was a great photographer for many years as well so the photos we're great and done very well. Photography runs in her family so it's daunting yet comforting at the same time when I break out my camera. They're all super supportive and it's really cool to have a skill in common with her whole family. Here are few of my favorite shots from the day.
