I read approximately 700 news articles and blog posts a day, and I look at a minimum of 20-30 photos a day. I read the news because I want to be up-to-date with the world and its technology; and I look at the photos because some of them are simply too beautiful to ignore. Lately, I’ve developed a strong interest for time-lapse photography, so I spend some time on the internet scouting for the next inspiring video. It’s like looking at a bunch of photos, with the speed of 24 or 30 of them in a second.
Check out this time-lapse video “A Momentary Lapse of London” by Davide Roveri. I’m no math expert, but by the time you finish watching the video, you’ll have looked at at least 9100 photos, assuming the video is 24fps. Now THAT’S mesmerizing.
Video was shot with a Canon 5D Mark II w/ TC-80N3 timer, Canon EF 24/105 f/4L IS USM, Zeiss Jena Flektogon MC 2.8/20 M42, Zeiss Jena Flektogon MC 2.4/35 M42, Zeiss Jena Sonnar MC 2.8/180 M42.
