This Timelapse of London Shows Day and Night Side by Side


Here’s a creative time-lapse of London by the filmmaker Matel. It combines day and night views of the city in each frame as a diptych.

Matel says he shot all the photos and footage using a Sony a7R II mirrorless camera and edited the project using Lightroom, After Effects, and Premiere.

“It was a challenge to shoot in London with a tripod, but [I] managed most of the time,” he writes. “It was a challenge especially to get the camera positioned in exactly the same spot in the same direction each time.”

To ensure that his two shots would be the same even when captured hours apart, Matel made markings on the ground and took precise notes about his framing.

You can find more of Matel’s work on his website, Vimeo, Instagram, and Twitter.
