This week I released my time lapse film, titled "Upslope Flow."

Most of the storms were captured this year, but it includes a few shots from the last 2 years as well. It's funny, even though 2018 was a crappy year for tornadoes, it was my best year of chasing. Living next to the Northern Plains brought plenty of opportunities, unlike the last 2 years. Even though I missed out on a few of the biggest days at the end of May, I don't have much to complain about since the season both started and ended with seeing tornadoes.

I hope you enjoy watching it:

Question for you time-lapsers...how the HELL you you have the patience to wait for a lapse and not just go crazy wanting to reposition?

In any case, awesome work!
Thanks Marc. It can be tough finding the perfect place to stop and shoot a time lapse. I usually have to stay further ahead of the storm, allowing at least 10 minutes to shoot before the rain arrives. If I'm too close to the storm a time lapse becomes too difficult, so sometimes I have to sacrifice the closer shot. Carrying a backup camera also allows me to shoot with different lenses or take a panorama while my main camera is shooting a time lapse.

Awesome video Kevin! Just wondering on what camera you use for your Time lapse? I shoot a Pentax K1 and K5IIs for my stills but would like to get into some TL and video, looks like your 2018 was pretty good. Thanks Brian

Thanks Brian. I shoot with a Nikon D750. I actually used to shoot with a Pentax K5 and still use it as a backup sometimes. With the Pentax I had to use an external intervalometer for time lapses, but on my Nikon I use the built-in interval timer. I'd imagine the newer Pentax cameras have that feature as well.
