As travel photography becomes increasingly popular, we’re seeing an insurgence of people wanting to take their photography to the next level by creating timelapses. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of incredible places to visit and capture as is evidenced by Alexandr Kravtsov’s stunning video of Barcelona:
Kravstov went to great lengths to capture 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 number 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.
