Photographer Ron Risman runs timelapse video workshops and the results are transcendent. Here's his latest, called "Dark Skies of Utah." Ron said to me:
"Dark Skies of Utah" was captured by eleven photographers last month in Utah during a 5-day Timelapse workshop. Eight of the eleven photographers had never captured timelapses before they attended the class. The results are simply breathtaking.
