Freelance photographer Jack G Miller has been chasing Florida’s storms since 2013. He originally focused on taking pictures once he found them, but that changed back in April. Then, he captured his first of what eventually end up to be 149,000 shots to blend into his first time-lapse storm film. On September 4th – with three days delay, because Hermine stirred things up – he was finally ready to release it, naming it “Sea Breeze.”
The time lapse turns Florida’s storms into an epic cinematic masterpiece. Jack, who is also on Instagram and Twitter, captured the most amazing cloud formations and lightning storms imaginable and adorned them with some well-timed, dramatic music.
Jack explains he took his shots with his Canon 6D and Canon 17-40L or Rokinon 14MM, and with his Nikon D5300 with 18-55 or 55-250. He eventually only used half of his 149,000 photos.
In a little thank-you note at the end of “Sea Breeze,” Jack gives thanks to Mike Olbinski for his help and advice, and Mike Killian for his support and for kick starting the whole process. “I also want to thank my beautiful and amazing girlfriend Betty for supporting me throughout the whole process of chasing and editing this project.”
