LIBERTY – NEW YORK CITY TIMELAPSE
I vividly remember my first experience of New York City as a kid, before I became a photographer. The shear sense of scale, the incredible architecture and just the over all feeling I got walking around the city. That experience became one of the reasons I got into photography. Ever since then, it has been my dream to recreate that feeling into a short timelapse film. From the sensory overload of standing on a busy New York street corner. To the tranquility of standing on a skyscraper, like being on top of the world. This is a dedication to my favorite city in the world.
“Liberty” Is a visual journey through New York City captured through timelapse and hyperlapse photography. The video consists of about 15,000 still photographs captured from 2016-2018.
Here is my latest behind the scenes video, showing how I created my New York City timelapse. This video features a ton of unreleased timelapses from the project, my thoughts on some of the shots and behind the scenes set ups.
NEW YORK CITY PHOTOGRAPHY
This still image ended up being one of my favorite scenes out of the New York City Timelapse video. I loved the motion created by the taxi cabs, while seeing the figures behind.
The lighting inside the Oculus building is just stunning. During the timelapse sequence the light glides across the ceiling, as the people float around towards the bottom.
Here is one of the stills from a rooftop hyperlapse taken during a stormy evening in New York City. This was one of the more challenging shots to create shooting and editing wise.
