Just A Second 2013 - 1 Second Everyday (Making one for 2019!!)
I'm making another one of these videos this year, which will make my fifth one since I started in 2012! We're only about 15 days away from 2020, so I figured I'd make a quick post about it to set expectations.
The following video & description are from 2013, which was my most popular of these videos since I began making them in 2012.
A LOT happened this year. We shot several weddings, baby portraits, and family video portraits. We had 60º weather in February, ice in May, and record flooding in August. We had two major comets. A massive meteor exploded over Russia. The Boston Marathon was bombed. The US Government shut down for 16 days. The pope resigned. China soft-landed the first spacecraft on the moon since 1976. And we lost great people like James Gandolfini, Lou Reed, and Nelson Mandela among many others.
And in the middle of all that chaos...we had a baby anyway.
Filmed with a set of Canon EOS 550D's using Sigma lenses, as well as a GoPro HD Hero 3 Black.
