This gorgeous timelapse film was created from footage captured over the course of 2 years around the San Francisco Bay area. Simon Christen spent many mornings on the Marin Headlands capturing scene by scene of what he calls “a love letter to the fog of the San Francisco Bay Area.”
He shot these images with the Canon 7D and Canon 4oD in raw format with exposures generally occurring every 2-10 seconds. Exposure was set in manual mode. On the last shot with the fog engulfing the camera, both the he and camera got pretty well soaked due to all of the moisture from the dense fog.
He uses a sturdy Really Right Stuff tripods for keeping the shots steady and, when necessary, uses software stabilization in After Effects to smooth out some shots.
