Light streaking, tilt shifting and time lapsing...

For the last year and a half, I have been into making panoramic photos by stitching shots together... then earlier this summer I was into macro photography due to a new lens... Lately I've been really into time lapse with tilt shift as well as night shots featuring streaking headlights. I think I might be complicating my life, but oh well... It's a lot of fun learning these new techniques! Above is a shot of a long exposure of traffic between Grand Forks, ND and East Grand Forks, MN. I also did some time lapse sequences while up north. The video can be seen on my Vimeo account here:

Below are a couple shots of Cliff Avenue (looking south), in Sioux Falls with the added "faux" tilt shift effect. This effect sort of tricks your eyes/brain to think you are looking at a miniature scene. I'll post more examples of older photos I've added this effect to further down. Also, for a time lapse video I made out in Custer State Park and Angostura Reservoir over Memorial Day, check out this link on Vimeo:

Don't forget to click on each photo for a larger file to view and thanks for stopping by!

Wrigley Field panoramic and tilt shift... I believe I posted this one already, but I wanted to include it in this post as well as I think it turned out very nicely and believe it or not, with the effect on, it is a much more interesting photo to view than without it.
Zoomed in a bit with the effect on.
