Time lapse photography is a great way to study a subject over a period of time. It brings into focus large and small changes that we might not normally notice. This is especially true in today’s Seattle, where the horizon changes almost daily with the movement of construction cranes, old buildings coming down, and new ones rising in their stead.
Harris Shutter is a fun way to record motion in a still image. It is a mobile app that takes several exposures within a set interval and colors each one of them, creating a flurry of colors in the same image. The app is named after the analog Harris Shutter effect pioneered by Kodak.

On a family vacation to Long Beach, Washington in February 2015, we mostly explored a stretch of beach and dunes a couple miles long. The view, however beautiful, stayed pretty much the same. To add variety, I used seven different types of film found in my photo bag. From the Martian reds of Lomo Redscale to the smooth grays of Kodak T-Max 400, this is a portrait of the longest beach in the United States, shot obsessively in the course of two days.
