Lights Ibiza II
Using the new generation of cameras I've Been Able to do this timelapse, a video made up of long-exposure pictures, joined together to show the movement of stars, clouds, shadows, all making a real acceleration of what happens in Many hours , to see Them in seconds.
99.9% of the video it s been done at night time, With The help of LED lamps, to illuminate rocks, trees etc ... When There Was no moon, I used Exposures from 30 to 40 seconds, Taking About 2:30 hours to do a sequence, But It's better When you see the stars and constellations.
I have also used the moonlight to do shorter exposures because the moonlight can be quite bright, depending on which phase is on. Some of the shots look like they have been done during the day. When you shot under the moonlight the exposure can be from 15 to 8 seconds and can take up to 1.15 hours, so I could shot the moviment of the shadow over the rocks, the moviment of the clouds during the night …
The pictures were all made With A Canon 5D Mark II and Canon Used lenses 16-35mm, Canon 24-70mm, Canon 24mm, Most Of Them Were Made at F/2.8, ISO 1600, 3200, 6400.
All the pictures are real, it looks like They Are too many stars. This is Because the human eye can not catch much light at night. The camera movement Has Been made by two types of sliders, the "Dynamic Perception" and the "Pocket Slider" where the camera moves A Few millimeters photo by photo, Creating this movement. This is all controlled by a small computer the MX2 Arduino Controller.
Most of These Have Been Made with shots the company of my friend Alejandro Iborra, sharing the Same hobby, Knowing That going out at night and spend long hours in very remote places and apologetic to get Into it, is some kind of risky business, Sometimes I Had to go out on my own and i got some fright.
And of course thanks to my wife and Alejandro Iborra's Wife for Letting us enjoy this hobby.
All pictures are made in the island of Ibiza, this is my birth place, a wonderful place to take pictures in their most beautiful spots, caves, beaches, mountains etc ... Where You can discover a different side of Ibiza than most people have never seen .
Luces de Ibiza II
Utilizando la nueva generación de cámaras fotograficas he podido hacer este timelapse, un video compuesto de fotos de larga exposición, que se unieron para mostrar el movimiento de estrellas, nubes, sombras, todo con una aceleración real de lo que sucede en muchas horas , para poder verlo en cuestión de segundos.
El 99,9% del vídeo se ha hecho en la noche, con la ayuda de lámparas led, para iluminar las rocas, árboles, etc ... cuando no había luna, he usado las exposiciones de 30 a 40 segundos,tardando 2:30 horas para hacer una secuencia de 10 segundos, pero es cuando mejor se ven las estrellas y constelaciones.
También he fotografiado con la luz de la luna para realizar exposiciones más cortas, debido a que la luz de la luna ilumina en gran medida dependiendo de su fase, algunas de las tomas parecen que están hechas durante el día, cuando se fotografia con la luna la exposiciónes son de 15 a 8 segundos y tarda alrededor de 1: 15 horas, asi pude captar el movimiento de la sombra sobre las rocas, el movimiento de las nubes en la noche, etc ...
Las imágenes fueron hechas con una Canon 5D Mark II y he utilizado los objetivos de Canon 16-35mm, Canon 24-70mm, Canon 24mm, la mayoría de ellas fueron hechas en F/2.8, ISO 1600, 3200, 6400.
Todas las fotos son reales aunque parezca que hay demasiadas estrellas esto es porque el ojo humano no puede captar tanta luz en la noche. El movimiento de la cámara ha sido hecha por dos tipos de railes, el "Dynamic Perception" y el "Pocket Slider", donde la cámara se mueve unos pocos milímetros foto a foto, para dar esa sensacion de movimiento. Todo esto es controlado por un pequeño ordenador el MX2 controlador Arduino.
La mayoría de las mis salidas han sido con la compañía de mi amigo Alejandro Iborra, que comparte la misma afición, ya que salir solo por la noche y pasar largas horas en lugares muy remotos y dificiles es algo peligroso, aunque a veces he salido solo y me he llevado algun susto.
Y por supuesto gracias a mi esposa y la esposa de Alejandro Iborra de por dejarnos disfrutar de esta afición.
Todas las imágenes son creadas en la isla de Ibiza, donde he nacido, un lugar maravilloso para tomar fotos en sus lugares más bellos, calas, playas, montañas, etc ... donde se puede conocer un lado diferente de Ibiza que la mayoría de la gente no sabe.# vimeo.com/40136171 Uploaded 334K Plays 4,346 Likes 188 Comments

An around-the-world time lapse journey celebrating our Sacred Earth. Six years in the making... seven continents... 24 countries.
Full details and locations shot-by-shot:
Versión en español
My life as a filmmaker has blessed me with the privilege of seeing some of the most surreal and timeless places on the planet. These images of our Sacred Earth set to music are my way of sharing some of the magic I've experienced along the way...
"Terra Sacra" ~ Latin for Sacred Earth.
Terra Sacra Time Lapses is a short film featuring remote landscapes and ancient monuments from around the globe. These images were photographed during my assignments and personal travels between 2006-2012.
I've combined my favourite shots from these trips into non-narrative film that touches on a theme close to my heart: Sacred Earth.
The visuals are driven by an original score by composer Roy Milner (roymilner.com). The six-minute film is a journey through three distinct Acts: (I) Primordial Earth (II) Past meets Present and (III) Eternal Universe.
This film is a personal project to share the beauty and awe I witnessed at these locations. I hope viewers will be moved by the intangible power of our Terra Sacra.
Endless thanks to Art Wolfe for hiring me to as the cinematographer for the public television series Art Wolfe's Travels to the Edge and taking me to the ends of the Earth where most of the shots from Terra Sacra were made. Art, you are an inspiration and the most driven photographer I have ever known! I learned so much working on this show with our amazing crew and have stories to tell for a lifetime!
Never-ending thanks to friends and colleagues Ian Herring and Maija Leivo of Parallax Film Productions for permission to us shots I took for the television series Ancient Megastructures (National Geographic Channel / History Television) and Battle Castle (Discovery/History Television/ BBC). These assignments provided unprecedented access to some of the world's most iconic ancient landmarks
Infinite thanks to my amazing wife Deddeda for her love and constant encouragement to pursue this project.
Most of the time lapses were shot with a Canon 5D at the maximum resolution using a TC-80N3 intervalometer. A few shots were taken with a Canon 7D and Canon 5D mk II.
All images are single manual exposures, no HDR composites.
Original full resolution images were colour corrected and processed in 16-bit in Adobe Bridge using Camera Raw and exported as JPEG sequences at maximum quality. The rendered JPEG sets were then opened in Quicktime Pro as image sequences and exported at their native full resolution (up to 5K) as Quicktime movies at 23.98 fps with the Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) codec. The ProRes 422 (HQ) files were then edited in Final Cut Pro 7.0.3 on a ProRes 422 (HQ) timeline at 23.98. The master file is ProRes 422 (HQ) 1920 x 1080.
Selected time lapse sequences were also processed using Adobe Bridge and LRTimelapse to smoothen aperture flicker apparent in some shots with large depth-of-field.
If you are interested in licensing any of the shots from the film, please contact me so I can direct you to the appropriate agency.
I would love to revisit many of the locations in this film and other powerful sacred sites around the world to create a feature-length "Terra Sacra". The film would combine real-time, slow-motion, and motion control time lapse imagery - all in stereoscopic 3D. If you are an angel investor, potential sponsor, broadcaster, distributor or someone deeply passionate who would would like to get involved, please don't hesitate to contact me.

This time-lapse production has been a wild and exhilarating ride, with a lot of physical work lugging my 120-130 pounds of gear around all of Manhattan. I bent (broke) some laws and made a ton of friends. Thank you all for your support and please feel free to help out a starving artist and share this video with the world.

The images used in this time lapse were taken in 2011 over the course of three summer months in Europe. My wife's mother lives in Lithuania, just outside of the capital city Vilnius, so we decided to make it our homebase from the end of May through August while we traveled to various countries. Some of the places we had been to were new to us, others we had visited before. But all in all, it was an amazing summer and definitely an unforgettable part of our lives.
We split our summer up into four trips. Between each of these trips, we'd fly back to Vilnius and relax for a week or so before packing up and heading off again. Our first trip took us to London. We spent three nights there before catching a quick flight over to Amsterdam. We spent another three nights (which became our default) in Amsterdam and then took a train down to Paris. We originally planned on three nights in Paris, but after day two, we realized how much more we wanted to do and that we didn't have enough time. So we extended our stay and ended up being there for six nights. I can't recall why, but for some reason, we had to cut the trip short and head back to Vilnius after Paris.
Next on our list was Scandinavia (or at least part of it). Neither of us had been there before, so we were super pumped. We started with three nights in Stockholm, followed by three nights in Copenhagen, another three in Helsinki, and capped it off with a final three nights in Riga. We really wanted to go to Norway, but felt that it would require an entirely separate trip of its own, just to explore the fjords and all of the beautiful natural scenery. Stockholm was an amazing city and we both agreed that we could easily settle down there. Riga also blew us away and I feel like it's one of the most underrated cities in all of Europe.
After another week or two back in Vilnius, we headed to the island of Crete for a week at an all-inclusive resort. We took a day trip to Santorini, which consisted of the most hellish eight-hour round trip boat ride ever, but that's another story. Definitely want to get back to Santorini, but we'd have to go for at least a few nights to make it worth it. Such a beautiful island.
Back to Vilnius again for another week or so, and then we headed out to Italy. Our summer in Europe was ending soon, so we only had enough time to visit Cinque Terre for three nights, with one night in Milan on each end of that trip.
The summer of 2011 was surreal. We visited so many places, saw so much, ate so much, and it all happened so quickly. Thank you to my amazing wife for being my little assistant and for having the patience to stand around waiting for all of these time lapses to finish!
Here's a scene-by-scene list of all the cities in order:
