Chaos

I originally had much more serene piece of music in mind from the Mishima soundtrack by Philip Glass, but as I searched for it in my music library I came across this much more chaotic piece which I felt really complemented the visuals.

This was shot as a series of timelapsed 2 second exposures in JPEG with the white balance set to 4500 Kelvins and a custom picture style. With exposures that long, there was no danger of the buffer filling up, so I put it in burst mode and locked the cable release. This meant there was only a split second delay between each exposure, allowing me to compress 15 minutes of action into just 30 seconds.
