Time lapse photography is a technique based on photographic images taken at regular intervals. This technique permits us to see things that normally we wouldn’t notice. Using this technique we can enjoy simple everyday actions, like the movement of the stars or the passing of the shadows in the trees in the fields. The video of Pollino that we are currently working on goes beyond the normal time lapse photographic process because we have added a bit of movement. The camera is mounted on a motorized track and takes pictures as the camera advances along the track and this is why we call it “hyper-timelapse”. By now we have taken over 10.000 fotos from the peaks in Pollino, and we are working in post production: that means we are now in the process of assembling the actual video. The photographs are assembled in order at a rate of 25 shots per second and through this process we can observe natural phenomenon, such as the sun rising at dawn or the stars moving across the sky at night in a new way, because the rate of viewing is sped up. This technique allows us to show in just a few seconds things something that occurs in nature over a longer period of time. Stay tuned!
