Raising the Big Top for Cirque du Soleil | Time-Lapse

May 28th, 2010 at 10:37 am by Chad Coleman

Yesterday I was assigned to photograph the raising of the big top tent for the new Cirque du Soleil production of KOOZA at Marymoor Park in Redmond. As I pulled up to parking lot it dawned on me to try to make a time-lapse of the raising.

You can see a few changes of autofocus in the last part of the time-lapse. Check it out, and I hope to find an assignment that will provide the opportunity to try again.
