The images and movie are quite nice, but, a “how to” was what I was looking for when I clicked on this article. I was sadly disappointed. I would love to learn how he did it.

Quite silly to say that he took those pictures in LA… He might have taken the foregrounds in LA, but the sky in EVERY single one of those photos comes from some where else. You might want to make that a bit clearer in your “article”
