Black and White is an often overlooked area of photography. Especially when time-lapse storm footage is done. There’s something about shooting in black and white that gives everything a more mysterious, serious, yet fantasy look. Mike Olbinski shot the entire sequence in black and white. Yes, there is some post-processing work done, but it’s natural black and white (as natural as a digital camera can be that is).
My favorite sequence is about 2 and a half minutes in, when clouds roll across the sky, then the sun starts coming through, and things get brighter, and more detailed. I also love watching the clouds for out of nowhere, water vapor collecting, winds combining, clouds being born. Storms are amazing to watch like this, safe in the comfort of your own home with soothing music playing in the background.
