My original plan was to rent a car, head North to Upstate New York, and shoot something interesting.. When I got up yesterday morning I started thinking of Long Island, and its beaches. Cool! 'That's where I'm going!', I thought.
Got my Zipcar, and headed East - Destination: Somewhere cool in Long Island!
Here is my car for the day.
I wanted to have a convertible car on purpose to document the road-trip with a timelapse, and have a better view since it's cabriolet.
Here is a little video I made of the drive to Montauk, Long Island.
This is the setup I used to film the timelapse from inside the car. Nikon D300 with 10-20mm lens mounted on a Delkin Dual-suction Camera Mount.
When I got to Montauk Point It got incredibly foggy.. The Lighthouse looked great! I felt as If I was in some scary movie.. Speaking about scary! The day after my trip to Montauk, my friend Sabrina sent me a link to this wiki page about the so-called Montauk Monster. What the hell! Look at where I spent almost 3 hours alone in the dark!! Sabrina could have warned me!! What If one of those things jumped out of the dark..?? That's it.. Finito! Muerto!
Here is something I put together to show the Lighthouse in the fog.
Since I had limited access, I shot this using only one angle, and then zoomed in in post. Music is 'It's deserted' by James Newton Howard from the movie King Kong. You can find it here on iTunes !
In the end I'm alive, and had a fantastic day..
I have to go back to this place!
