Here’s a cool time-lapse (or rather, “hyperlapse) that involved quite a bit in way of post-production to get it to work with the background music as well as it does. It was shot over 14-days within a 3-month period, and offers an awesome time-lapse look at the amazing city of Vienna. Read more…
People sometimes use the expression “slow as a glacier” to describe something so stagnant that even the speeds of snails and molasses would feel inadequately fast in comparison. The fastest glaciers ever measured move at tens of meters per day, while the slowest ones may budge only have a meter over the course of a year. Most of the time, the movement is too slow for the human eye to see.
Luckily for us, there’s something called time-lapse photography. Back in 2004, PBS aired a NOVA episode titled Descent into the Ice, which followed photographers and adventurers as they ventured deep into the heart of a glacier found on Mont Blanc. One of the things they did was set up cameras to capture the movement of glaciers over extremely long periods of time. The video above shows 5 months of movement seen under a glacier moving 2 feet per day.
Here’s a little bit of weekend inspiration for you. When photographer Shawn Reeder was 18-years-old, he won a trip to Yosemite and fell in love with the national park and what he describes as its “changing beauty.” This time-lapse, which took almost two years of shooting to make, is a manifestation of Reeder’s love of the area and his desire to share it with others.
Nothing brings me more joy than to share this life changing beauty with others. Ever since I became fascinated with timelapse photography almost two years ago, after seeing the work of Tom Lowe, I’ve wanted to do a piece on Yosemite and the Sierra. Now after almost two years of shooting, I’m thrilled to share. I hope you enjoy my vision of my home, the majestic Yosemite and Sierra.
