It’s been nearly three months since wildfires ripped through Edmond and destroyed several homes. I remember it and the Oklahoma City wildfires pretty well, considering our team of breaking news reporters spent days reporting on the fires and structural damage.
I was trying to find something to blog about and came across this Vimeo video of the Edmond wildfires by Insight Visual Media Productions. After posting my second time lapse video, it’s probably obvious that I love this effect. But this video shows much more than colorful footage. I think it really captures the cloud of smoke and devastation that could be seen for miles.
The production company explains more about the video in a blog post on its website.
When I saw a huge tower of smoke billowing over Edmond this weekend I couldn’t miss the opportunity to get out and shoot some time-lapses. I actually went outside to look at the cumulus clouds from a storm that was rolling over the north edge of town and when I saw the smoke I immediately knew this would be a good opportunity to shoot bracketed.
I’ll let you watch and decide what you think of the video.
