I used to work in video production years ago. It is amazing what it took then vs now to capture our lives in stunning resolution. Hell…back then there wasn’t even HD and it took a massive amount of equipment and it was all expensive and HUGE to pull something like this off. Now days, all you need is a GoPro, a regular computer and a little creativity to really pull off something special. If there is one section of the web and media that has changed the most in such a short period of time…it has to be video.
This sequence is amazing. Check it out.
This video is just too captivating not to share. It just really put things into a different perspective for me today.
I am a sucker for incredible footage. This sequence by Michael Shainblum in breathtaking. There is something about time lapse that makes you fall away into the scene and really captures what it feels like to be at a place over time. While the star scenes are incredible, I personally like the tops of the clouds and the city scenes the best. The tops of the clouds remind me of water and those huge, colorful tarps you used to throw balls into at gym class when I was a kid (I don’t even know if they still do that anymore).
Anyway, sit back and enjoy the next 6 minutes. It is worth every second.
Its been almost a year since i started my journey into time-lapse photography. This project has been an ongoing process for about 4 months. There was a lot of trial and error, there were also many sleepless nights in many different unexpected places. This film has taught me about patience and what it really takes to achieve the shot that you dream about in your head. The gear isn’t as important as the passion you put within your work.
This short video is called EXISTENCE. The video is a statement not only about time and progression, but also a statement about the world we have created for ourselves. The videos contrasts the two extremes of life itself. The urban metropolis and the beauty outside the city. I love to stargaze, watching the milky way float across the sky is one of the most therapeutic experiences i have felt. If you havent, then i strongly recommend taking the time to do so.” – Michael Shainblum
Over the past couple of days, we have been working on helping D grab toys and work on basic motor skills. He started grabbing for stuff on his own…so we just started encouraging it by sitting him in his Bumbo with some hard toys around him. So far, he is doing really well with it. It is amazing to watch him really think about what he wants…then go after it.
We are starting to get into that fun stage where he becomes less and less of an infant and more of a baby. Things like tummy time, interaction with my wife and I and activities like this are starting to be a lot more fun for him and us. I am really stoked about the next couple of months. From what I have heard, 6 to 9 months is something really special.
