Kuala Lumpur Timelapse

With so many timelapse videos floating around, you might assume they’re easy to make. But take Rob Witworth’s Kuala Lumpur, then break it down frame by frame and you’ll discover that the 2 1/2 minute long video is comprised of nearly 20,000 still photographs taken on four different cameras over the course of 40 separate shoots. That’s equals about 640 gigabytes of hard drive space and 400 man hours to edit it all together. So as you watch Witworth’s video below, take time to appreciate not just the gorgeous photography, but also the dedication he has put into its creation:

About those four cameras we were talking about. Rob Witworth employed  a Nikon D800, a pair of Nikon D7000’s,  and a Nikon D320. The bodies were outfitted with either a Nikon 16-35 f/4 AF-S VR ZoomNikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED AF-S DXNikon 70-200mm f/2.8G ED AF-S VR IINikon 50mm f/1.4G AF-S, or a Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8G ED AF DX Fisheye.

“I liked the idea of exploring how the city changes from day to night, how spaces dramatically change during the course of a few hours. This developed into one of the themes shown in the video of scenes switching from day to night.”

    I feel like every other post on here is some time lapse… they’re cool, but the hype is way past antique at this point, like an overplayed radio song. I do appreciate this site regardless.
