Chicago Timelapse Project, Windy City Nights II

Chicago Timelapse Project, Windy City Nights II from Max Wilson on Vimeo.

Windy City Nights II is all about my continuing passion for shooting night timelapse photography in a city I truly appreciate for it’s inspiring views and beauty. This project is a continuation of my first Chicago Timelapse movie and I have been shooting for the past 18 months in my spare time in this amazing city to try and capture what your eyes do not see normally. There is something special about looking down on streets of gold and taking in the view.

Windy City Nights II is also about making new connections with Chicagoan’s and meeting new people who have assisted me throughout my journey. I truly appreciate all the new connections I have made who helped make this movie possible. My journey has been interesting with lots of rewards and filled with challenges. Chicago is not an easy city to get around with a few hundred pounds of gear and hauling it up to rooftops and other tight spaces where it sits in awkward places for long periods of time. After spending hours and days setting up shots and developing them, it’s nice to see a pretty image come to life in the form of a timelapse. It really makes me appreciate this city and all it’s uniqueness it offers. It’s not an easy process as any timelapse photographer will tell you; however, it’s very rewarding in the end. I continue to learn and am always being inspired by a rich photography community Chicago has to offer.

The gear I used to make this project are Canon 5D Mark III’s and Canon 1DX’s camera bodies as well as numerous Canon L and Cine Lenses. Motion control gear I used was the Kessler Second Shooter paired with the CineSlider and the DitoGear OmniSliders. Software used to process my timelapse sequences were LRTimelapse, Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects.

Alexander Gerst’s Earth timelapses

Watch Earth roll by through the perspective of ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst in this six-minute timelapse video from space. Combining 12 500 images taken by Alexander during his six-month Blue Dot mission on the International Space Station this Ultra High Definition video shows the best our beautiful planet has to offer.

Marvel at the auroras, sunrises, clouds, stars, oceans, the Milky Way, the International Space Station, lightning, cities at night, spacecraft and the thin band of atmosphere that protects us from space.

Often while conducting scientific experiments or docking spacecraft Alexander would set cameras to automatically take pictures at regular intervals. Combining these images gives the timelapse effect seen in this video.

Muskoka- time lapse by Dynamic Perceptions founder “MILapse”

Muskoka from MILapse on Vimeo.

National Geographic named Muskoka Cottage Country in Ontario Canada the ‘#1 Best Trip of Summer 2011’ ( http://travel.nationalgeographic.com/travel/best-trips-summer-2011-photos/ ). I’ve been lucky enough to visit this incredible series of lakes and islands formed by some of the oldest rock on the planet many times. Our favorite destination is a somewhat remote old school cabin resort that saw it’s heyday in the 40s. The Arundel Lodge once bustled with activity serving guests staying in tiny cabins from the main lodge with hearty breakfasts, dinners and activities. Now it sits quietly on a tip of Walkers Point as tourists generally moved away from this style of accommodation. I had the opportunity to capture it and nearby Hardy Lake as the last days of the 2011 summer passed into memory. As luck would have it, the sunsets were spectacular every single night we were there.

This wonderful gushing track by Sigur Ros ( Med sud í eyrum ) just seemed to fit the overwhelming beauty of this place like a glove.

Technical stuff:
-Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Timelapse Dolly (www.dynamicperception.com)
-Canon 1Dmk3 & 5Dmk2
-Lots of Tokina 11-16/2.8
