Moving Time-Lapse

Most of the time-lapse videos we’ve seen involve still shots, but you’ve got to hand it to Eric Billman for combining the usually stationary art of time-lapse photography with a motion-control rig.

Queen Mary 2 Time-Lapse

We’ve certainly seen our share of time-lapse videos, but Adonis Pulatus’ footage shot from the deck of the Queen Mary 2 as it sailed across the Atlantic is the first we’ve seen shot at sea.

The Chapel (HDR Timelapse)

Getting it done in China: swift workers completed the main structural components of the Ark Hotel in just 46 hours, and finished the building enclosure in 90 hours; that equals 2 minutes in YouTube land.

NYC Marathon Time-Lapse

Cool time-lapse footage of this year’s New York City Marathon at the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, the starting point of the race since 1976. Bonus: helicopter hovering like a dragonfly at 0:17.

The talented Mike Flores used 2 custom track and dolly systems that he engineered himself to craft this gorgeous time-lapse montage showreel using a Canon 5DII. Very nicely done. (Thanks Seba!)

Inter//States: Tokyo Time-Lapse

Inter//States: Tokyo Time-Lapse

Samuel Cockedey’s time lapse video of Tokyo made us even more tired, but it’s still an interesting piece, proof of how mechanical the urban life can be. The airport shot in particular was amazing.

Southwest Time-Lapse

Photographer Dan Eckert shot this amazing reel of time-lapse imagery throughout California and Arizona, and it’s truly stunning. The more ambitious shots required Dan’s custom-built camera rigs.

While Ph Dee is convinced his attempt to shoot a time-lapse video of the recent Perseid meteor shower was a failure because of airplanes, we think it’s an awesome display of the night sky anyhow.
