✱ My Favorite Place by Evan Troxel

The latest ArchiTalks post idea was to write about our favorite place. That could be taken so many ways. Favorite architectural place? Favorite place for what activity? Favorite normal place or favorite place that I've only been once? Maybe it's my favorite place I've been to many times because I like it so much...

✱ The Watchman by Evan Troxel

This is a short time-lapse shot from Watchman Campground in Zion National Park of the sun setting on Watchman Peak. Watch it in HD here. I made the mistake of shooting jpeg only so I couldn't pull as much out of the images as I had hoped, especially near the end of the sequence. I'll definitely be shooting more time-lapse now that I'm starting to get the hang of it. There is so much possible with time-lapse and the field has exploded with new technology lately. It's a great creative outlet.

Technical info: Shot on my Olympus OM-D E-M5, with a 12mm lens (24mm equiv), 1 shot every 10 seconds (393 frames) using Triggertrap (App Store link) on iPhone for a controller. Overall shoot time was just over an hour. Put together using LRTimelapse and Adobe Lightroom 5.
