Honey Moon Over The Faust Landmark

I wanted to capture the rare "honey moon" event that occurred on Friday, the 13th of June, 2014. (news.nationalgeographic.com...) I chose one of Rockford's most iconic pieces of architecture as my subject – the Faust Landmark Hotel. Despite the Faust being a shadow of its former glory, I'm pretty pleased with the results nonetheless.

The cycles of a storm

While this was a simply a technical test to see how well a time-lapse rig would do during a thunderstorm, it does show just how violent and unpredictable such weather can be over a five hour span of shooting in extreme weather. I was lucky enough to have the building overhang protect the lens from the elements, but it demonstrated just how important a good vantage point and proper protection of the optics will be for a real shoot at a remote location.
