On occasion you see something so breath-taking you don’t have adequate words to describe it. It’s jaw dropping. Stunning. I had that experience when I first saw the HD series, Earth, on Blu-ray. The photography was beyond anything I had imagined before.
Well, I suspect that Tom Lowe’s (@timescapes) time lapse project, which he has been working on for some time, is going to be another of those stunning visual experiences. Below is a teaser he posted on Vimeo. There’s time lapse, there’s astro time lapse, and there’s Tom Lowe’s time lapse. I can’t wait to see this finished work.
Also of note, Tyler Ginter (@TylerGinter) who spent some time with Tom helping with a shoot in the fall and learning more about time lapse, has posted a really excellent piece about the art and science of time lapse. He includes a growing checklist, links to Tom Guilmette’s (@TomGuilmette) tutorial on setting up the Kessler Cineslider, Philip Bloom‘s (@PhilipBloom) tutorial on post, and a behind the scene shot of setting up Tom’s Natural Bridge time lapse sequence. It’s really a great post. The checklist is awesome.
When you watch the time lapse below, which is a teaser for his upcoming film, be sure to go into full screen mode.
