Here's the video I was talking about, Shaped by Time by Enrique Pacheco.
Hey Everyone! For this reflective response, I'll be talking about a time-lapse video I watched. As some of you may know, I absolutely LOVE time-lapses! So today on vimeo, I just happened to stumble on a time-lapse video called "Shaped by Time" from Enrique Pacheco. Anyways, I think this time-lapse is just amazing! It shows the effect of erosion on different landscapes in the world. It's very interesting to watch these parts of the world that I haven't seen, away from regular buildings and houses. But it's even more interesting to see how it's been shaped over time, battling weather, harsh winds, heavy rainfall, who knows what it's been through to get like how it is now? What's pretty unique about this time-lapse is that the camera moves slowly while the landscape is being, well, "Shaped by Time". It's almost like they're using a slider. Well, it is actually because they are using a slider! They filmed with a Sony A99 using a motorized slider, and boy, that would have to taken a long time to film. That's the thing about filming time-lapses; it takes time. Not only time, but patience. Anyhow, If you've read my blog, "Beautiful Time-Lapse" instead of using a motorized slider like Enrique did, they used a tracking tripod; a motorized tripod that rotates the camera as the Earth rotates. But of course, with any good time-lapse, is good music to fit it. The music soundtrack is from Peter Nanasi, and the music is ominous, suspenseful, almost scary even, but it also gets a little inspiring. However, the music fits and matches the video; it sets the tone. My favorite thing about time-lapses is the sky, especially at night. You can see the passing of clouds, the stars, shooting stars, and the colorful sky moving, you can really see time going by and how long the photographer had to film. That's it for this week's reflective response! Below are some videos, photos, and links.Thanks for reading!
