natureLAPSE: Volume 3 timelapse
Timelapse of the Day – March 20, 2013
This is a really beautiful collection of timelapse shots from around the United States by Denver based cinematographer and editor Matt Ziniel. After you’ve watched, be sure to check out Matt’s site at MattZiniel.com
This is the third volume of timelapses in my natureLAPSE series. This series of timelapses includes the following locations. Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, South Dakaota, Wisconsin, Wyoming, and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
2012 was a busy year for me. I was fortunate enough to travel to many beautiful locations for both work and play. Whether the productions I was working for called for timelapses or not, I always tried to get at least one timelapse in to capture the location in which I was working. Many times as a professional cameraman, your working from sun up to sun down, leaving no time for anything else, so you will find a large amount of night sequences in this volume for that very reason.
Most of the timelapses were shot with a Canon 60d and tokina 11-16mm lens, some are done with a GoPro Hero 2. All photos were shot as RAW files, batch processed in Lightroom 4, strung together in Quicktime 7, and edited in FCPX.
A huge thanks goes out to Tad Hutchinson who made the music track for this piece as well as natureLAPSE: volume 2.
