Tilt-Shift Photography is amazing there’s no doubt about it, but the artist Sam O’Hare has just made it more stunning with this new miniature video of New York!
“Aero Director/ VFX artist Sam O’Hare has finished a short film, The Sandpit, that we’re very excited to be able to share with you. This short is inspired by films like Koyaanisqatsi (really, that’s not in spell check??), and time-lapse tilt shift photography. Click to see The Sandpit. (For best viewing, check HD and watch in full screen mode.)” [read on here]
This was taken right on the Yarra River and opposite Federation Square. A long exposure of the Ferris Wheel and a Yarra party boat on the water made it an epic shot. The party boat is hard to see due to little light, but the small amount of light that was picked up by my sensor was the glow flickering off the water’s surface, which made for an awesome effect :) !
The streets of Melbourne are full of life and photogenic material, I advise you to explore your city more especially at night. There were a couple of fire twirlers along Southbank and as you can see in the shots below they make for an excellent long exposure photograph :P !
The Brussels “Hôtel de Ville” Town Hall, Belgium. Stands tall over the city square and the bustling cafes and restaurants. This photograph is a stitch of two photos, the Town Hall is so tall my 18mm lens couldn’t even capture it in a single shot, and that’s the reason for all the lens distortion, without a tripod attempting a multiple image stitch would be very challenging in this slow shutter speed situation, so I opted for the distortion.
The Melbourne Cricket Ground the home of Australian Rules Football and the largest Stadium in the whole of Australia, it also holds the world record for tallest light towers at a sporting venue! This photograph is actually multiple photos stitched together to form the panorama.
