As travel photography becomes increasingly popular among photographers, we are seeing an insurgence of people wanting to take their photography to the next level by creating timelapse videos. Fortunately, there is no shortage of incredible places to visit and capture as is evidenced by Alexandr Kravtsov stunning video of Barcelona. Take a glimpse at the stunning camera work:
Kravstov went through great lengths to capture all of the still images–all 24,000 of them–required to make the timelapse. After spending a seemingly endless amount of time taking over 100 subway rides and setting up his portable studio all across Barcelona, Kravstov spent even more time processing the 480 gigabytes of data.
To create a timelapse, you have to start with a large amount of still photos which are edited and processed into an animation in post production. The result is a movie, like the one you saw above, that shows a wide span of time in just a short timeframe.
