Time Lapse

Soul Muse of Iceland

Last summer during May – June – July 2013, I traveled Iceland for 6 weeks with a camper. Drove +5000 km ( +3000 miles ), met countless nice openminded Icelandic people, saw one of the most beautiful places on this planet, was in constant awe while doing so. Had to overcome many technical issues, ate food I had never before, shot over 40.000 frames, edited +2,5 months on this project, but I’m happy with the result.
I especially want to thank my partner who dealt for 6 weeks with a nut photographer going wild…
Samaris for making such beautiful music.
Steinarr and Lars from kukucampers.is/ for their outstanding service, kindness, and making this trip affordable and thus possible.
Ben and Liz from syrp.co.nz/ for their openess, honesty, support and patience in the Genie project.
Gunther from lrtimelapse.com/ for his ongoing kind support and fantastic product !
and Michael Levy from international-photographer.com/ for his fantastic map of Iceland. A must have if your going to travel Iceland.
Everything shot with Canon 5D Mark II, EF 16-35mm 1: 2,8 L USM, CPL, HD filters, and a DYI Igus slider with a DIY possibility to join.

Gosh I LOVE Iceland !

I need to go back asap…

Circus Picolini Timelapse

Circus PICOLINI comes to town !

On Sunday in coöperation with www.carolinatafalla.com and Freinetschool deKring I had the opportunity to make a timelapse movie from a childrens circus tent that has been set up in town.

The reason why it was so special for me was that it was set up in the late afternoon, and that meant it was getting dark after a couple of hours.

I had to use and implement “The Holy Grail” in timelapse…

What that means is that in order to create a smooth transition from day to night or vice versa in the time lapse sequence I have to implement certain rules and handlings to make shure it is a fluent transition between day and night.

The estimated time the tent was going to be set up was 2 hours. Finally, it took more then 3 hours with about 9 people who where involved.

I shot nearly 2000 frames !

Let me tell you, this is hard work. Nothing but respect for these people from the circus !

All handlings and how to implement these “Holy Grail” rules and tricks you can find on the right side bar of this page. Just click the banners.

Gunther Wagner explains in full detail how to proceed with the workflow and how to handle the process.

If things are unclear to you, he helps you out in any way he can.

He’s a nice and passionate guy !

Enjoy the circus lapse !

The “Genie” from the New Zealand Company Syrp has finally arrived !

The ease of use of the Genie is off the charts.

In the menu there are already some preset features so you actually can start shooting right away.

No effort is spared by the developers Chris Thomson ( Designer ) and Ben Ryan ( photographer ) to make sure this state of the art piece of equipment is user ready ones the Genie has arrived and is unpacked.

Just push the on button, set one of your favourite presets like clouds, people, stars, mount the Genie on yr tripod and or rail device and start making your time lapse.

Simpler is not possible in this range of photography.
