I’ve been admiring the art of hd time lapse for a loooong time. And I found out Canon’s 5d markii was available with video, I saw it as the perfect union of a high quality still camera for time lapse and a ridiculously sweet film camera with awesome depth of field. 2 and a half years later I finally have one to call my own. The above is my first ever attempt to make a time lapse after admiring the great work of many others from afar. Here’s a few that fueled my inspiration:
Chad Richards took the hd time lapse one step further by creating an hdr time lapse. Check out this post to see how he does it.
I interviewed Michael Rissi about his time lapses a while back. You can read the full interview here.
I recently ran into Michael again on the forums at timescapes.org. I can’t speak highly enough of this site and its members. The best in the business, very friendly and the willing to share in their knowledge. A rare mix indeed!
Finally, check out the Time Lapse in HD channel on Vimeo. Always a great source of quality work.
