The good people at Sun Printing in Wausau finished up the final editing on this stop-motion video we started working on together last month. This started as more than 3,000 still frames and got pieced together into this little film. I shot most of the stills and put them together into raw footage and then the creative department at Sun did the heavy lifting of trimming those clips into a great little story. I love it. Well done, team. Well done.
I had a great day yesterday working on a photo project with the good people at Sun Printing in Wausau, Wisconsin. Completely separate from the main project, I grabbed these images of some of their letterpress equipment while I was there. I'll be honest, I only have a vague clue what half these things are or what they actually do, but they look really cool. I'm not going to kid myself and pretend that I'm going to start letterpressing anything, but in another life I think I could have been way into this stuff. It's got all kinds of great little parts and widgets and gears and stuff. It's probably also tedious, so I suspect that I'm way better off leaving it as a romantic, artistic notion than a real life dissappointment. Either way, it makes for some cool photos. Thanks to Craig Bieri for being the human lightstand for these images; you, sir, can hold an umbrella with the best of them, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Here's another shot from this summer that I just got around to archiving. I don't have much to say about it, I just love the colors in this image. This was taken with a tilt-shift lens from the roof of a parking structure in Wausau, Wisconsin. Origininally designed for architectural photography tilt-shift lenses can be used to correct for converging verticals and other perspective related distortions. They can also be used to create this effect commonly referred to as miniature faking. Kind of cool. This was part of a project I did with an old friend from college. Craig's a designer with a firm down that way. Always a blast to work with him.
