Watch the building of the Pedestrian Bridge

Postby Brad » Mon Feb 24, 2014 10:57 pm

Watch the building of the Pedestrian Bridge


So I thought about this project forever and finally got around to working on it a while ago... First I had to go back through all my old files, and re-process them how I would now. Then taught myself Adobe Premier. While the video isn't perfect, I think its cool enough until I learned what I did wrong. Most of these photos were shot with my old Canon Rebel with a kit lens. Some of the later shots were with the Canon 5D MKI and the 24-104 Lens.

Check out the Video here:

Thanks. And of course, I can't just fix that without deleting the video and re-uploading it...

Sorry, I didn't intend to sound like a jerk. It's a neat video.

No, you didn't come off that way at all. I just can't believe that I looked that that video so many times and never saw it...

Fantastic as always Brad. I really like the aerial shots from the top of the towers and the ones overlooking the bridge with downtown Omaha in the background. I am sure those pictures are one of a kind.

Thanks! Actually the OWH photographer and I were standing side by side in the crane basket. I am sure we got different things, but still from the same spots. As far as the Aerial Shots from the Helicopter, It was just me an the pilot that day.

Thanks! I hear from people in Omaha that have never been on it, which kind of surprises me. You live in GI so I can see that.
