Amazing Timelapse of American Wilderness

Last summer photographer Shane Black and two friends left jobs and spent 2 month travelling the USA, taking pics and teaching workshops. They visited 32 states, 13 national parks, and drove almost 13,000 miles. Although they had to deal with time management, and didn’t always have the time they wanted for shooting, the wonderful timelapse you can se above was produced. Shane writes on Vimeo:

This summer, two friends and myself all left our comfortable jobs of six years to spend two months traveling across the country and teaching photography workshops along the way. We all felt that it was time to take a risk and get out of our comfort zones… adventure was calling us. It was a trip filled with endless hours cooped up in a van, exploring breathtaking landscapes, sharing stories and laughs, meeting some of the nicest people, making new friends, getting to meet old friends from around the country, and sharing our love of photography with others.
This trip was a constant test for me, as we had such short and limited time in nearly all of the spots we visited. In most cases, I’d have to hurry out of the van with all of my gear and find a decent composition in a very short amount of time as soon as we would arrive at the location. It was a constant race against the light.
During those 2 months, we traveled across 32 states , visited 13 national and state parks, and drove nearly 13,000 miles in a (somewhat) trusty old Dodge Caravan… with no cruise control. It was an adventure that gave us many memories that we will all hold onto for many years to come. I think that everybody needs to take a trip and have their eyes opened to just how beautiful this world is and how much is really out there.

The following gear was used:

Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Canon EOS 5D Mark III
Canon EF 24mm f/1.4 L
Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8
Canon EF 70-200mm F/2.8L IS II
Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L
Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8
Lee Filters
Manfrotto Tripods
