Hey Everyone! For this weeks reflective response, I will be talking to you about this really cool video I saw on YouTube, called "Dazzling Time-Lapse Reveals America's Great Spaces" and was posted by National Geographic. Based off of the title of the video, you can already tell that this video is a time-lapse. I don't know why, but I'm absolutely obsessed with time-lapses! Well this would be my favorite time-lapse video I have seen so far. The photographer is Shane Black, who quit his day job to create this video! Can you believe that this time-lapse video contained over 10,000 photos?! That's a lot! I wonder long that took to shoot that many shots! He must've had a lot of storage and a good lasting battery. The sky looked so amazing and 'out of this world'!...no pun intended ;) I also thought it looked so cool and interesting when the camera moved, like how you would see a shot moving if you were to use a slider. But at first I wondered how they took the photos while getting that 'motion' effect. It turns out, the photographer actually used a tripod called a tracking tripod which has a motor that rotates the camera as the earth rotates. Pretty cool, huh? And what especially made the video EVEN BETTER was the music! A few months back, we had a blog topic on how music affected the video itself. Well in this video, the music made it much better! The music set the tone and matched. Plus, it would be pretty boring if all we only watched photos; thus, no audio. You can watch the video by clicking here. You won't regret watching it! Thanks for reading, also make sure to read my constructed response, "The Final Update". Bye!!
