Week-Ender 81

Start the week the right way and watch this timelapse.

The video is at 4 minutes that took more than a day to shoot and countess hours on post processing from the master.

My first attempt at HDR tone mapping timelapse.

We start off with normal timelapse and then go into the 3 and 7 bracket tone mapped HDR timelapses.

I wanted to create a sense of colour and insanity that Las Vegas gives you. All from one view point. My balcony. With that restriction can you do it? Well I did it before in my two previous timelapses…

This was harder in a way as there was no single focal point like in the Sydney Harbour piece or the Space Needle piece.

I made a virtue of the HDR tone mapping with the change of pace in the music and also my use of bookends which I love.

There is a very detailed commentary on my website which goes into each shot in detail. It’s worth a listen. philipbloom.net/​?p=13307

Music is from “Moon” by the brilliant Clint Mansell
