The video features brilliant images of Iceland, the Grand Canyon, Utah, Canyonlands National Park and Southern California. To capture each shot, Farrell used a Canon 5D Mark 3 and a 5D2.
In an interview with Mashable Farrell says, “The reason I enjoy shooting time lapse is because I can produce videos that are currently not possible with normal video and cinema cameras”. He goes on to explain “My shot of the Milky Way at 2:33 is only possible with a camera that can shoot very long exposures. In the scene at 3:20, of the beach in Iceland, the contrast was far too much to be captured with a single exposure. A still camera gives me the option of combining multiple exposures to produce a more pleasing high dynamic range (HDR) image.”
