ELEVATED – “Tiny” City of Chicago – Tilt-Shift 4K Time Lapse

Oamenilor tot timpul le place să vadă lucrurile de sus, și la propriu, și la figurat. Fie că privim din dronă, sau de la etajul unui zgârie-nori, suntem captivați imediat de o imagine de ansamblu a peisajului. Așa este și cazul timelapse-urilor miniaturale, când orice metropolă sau munte pare de jucărie.
La joacă!


“(®) One camera, one lens, one “tiny” big city – CHICAGO.
Real Tilt & Shift Time Lapse with 24 mm Rokinon T-S 3.5 Lens. Since this effect is achieved easily and to often using software (fake tilt-shift) I found this more challenging with actual T-S Lens. It took me really long time to collect sequences (some dated January 2016), requiring higher elevation. Every now and then I was able to shoot from high-rises and finally gathered enough interesting time lapses to edit miniaturized Windy City.
Special “Thank you” for all permissions to photograph and to amazing people helping me with my project. Here is a list of some locations I was be able to take pictures from – London House Chicago, Sheraton Chicago, Continental Hotel Chicago, AON Building, Holiday Inn Chicago, Hard Rock Hotel Chicago, Wyndham Chicago, Lake Point Tower, Field Museum, MSI, Sheed Aquarium, McCormick Place and many, many more.
Canon 5D MK III, 60 time lapses, around 20K pictures, processing in LRTime Lapse, Lightroom 5, Editing – Sony Movie Studio 13
