A music video for landscape photographers

Long time friends, Stomacher, have worked with photographer/cinematographer, Sean Stiegemeier to put together this absolutely amazing music video.

Stomacher's music is well worth checking out, but what makes this video of particular interest for most of us landscape photogs are the locales and how it was made. The video is pretty landscape-centric and most of the locations are probably pretty familiar. Like the one with that giant half of a dome.

Stiegemeier also has managed to capture some of the most incredible time-lapse sequences I have seen, which were captured with Canon 5d and 5d mark II bodies. He states in the comments at the Vimeo site, that he used an inexpensive telescope mount for the panning during the time-lapses. Worked pretty damn well. Another incredible technical feat, is the use of HDR. This guy must be extremely patient to have shot so many of those time-lapse shoots as brackets to later merge to HDR. That is a mind boggling amount of frames to deal with.

Bravo to Sean Stiegemeier and Stomacher for such a job well done!
