I absolutely love doing shooting these... it's just a hobby
but I've always been fascinated by Photography and making these videos
has certainly taught me a lot since I picked up my first SLR
back in 2011. Sitting down and doing nothing except
watching the world go by is one of life's most effortlessly enjoyable
things you can do. Throw in a sunset or sunrise and its epically
lay down and watch the stars float past you and it
becomes magical. Shooting these Timelapse videos forces you to go out and do just
that each and every day and its pure gold! When you get back and watch
the final product its mesmerizing to watch what can be
30 minutes to 4 hours condensed down into a short 10 second clip.
Most of these shots (2 clips were from Australia) were filmed around the North and South Islands of New Zealand during an amazing 2 month trip I took. Possibly the best "holiday" I've ever taken, we hired a car and drove around the north island for 1 month staying where-ever we could and then hired ourselves a campervan for the south island which was just superb! I usually hate those campervans but in a country like New Zealand where the traffic is around 1% of the volume you get in the UK you can see how amazing it is to drive around in one.
I shot these using my Canon 5D MkIII with either 24-70mm f2.8 or my 14mm f2.8 prime lens, and I had a travelling slider kit from Dynamic Perception... which unfortunately was a bit wobbly and I had to use a lot of post production editing to try and get rid of the wobble... some clips were unfortunately unusable in the end!
However overall I am rather pleased with how it turned out and I'm hoping to be able to shoot many more!
