This Gorgeous Tilt-Shift Time-Lapse Turns the City of Sydney Into a Tiny Oasis

Put together by Aussie photographer Filippo Rivetti for Expedia, ‘Tiny Sydney’ is an incredibly beautiful tilt-shift time-lapse captured around the New South Wales capital (not the Australian capital… that’s Canberra), Sydney.

The tilt-shift effect was applied in post-production, so trolls feel free to whine about that, but the gear used to capture the raw footage was a Canon 5DMIII, a Canon 7D, a Canon 16-35mm f/2.8, a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8, a Canon 24mm f/1.4 and a Zeiss 50mm 1.4. Post-production involved using both LRTimelapse and Adobe After Effects.

Rivetti also makes note of the locations shown in the video for those wanting to check out any of these particular vantage points the next time you’re shooting in Australia. He specifically notes Bondi Beach, Sydney Tower Eye, Pylon Lookout and Dudley Page Reserve in the video’s description.

We’ve all seen plenty of time-lapses, and even tilt-shift time-lapses, but between the clever text integration at the beginning and unique perspective morphing from one scene to the next, this one stands out from the crowd. Give the short video a watch… we don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
