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

Timelapse video shot over two days in Dublin, Ireland.
Camera: Canon 60D running Magic Lantern.
Lens: Canon 50mm f1.8, Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, Cosina 24mm f1.8
Profile: User defined (High saturation & sharpness, medium warm colour temperature)
Editing software: Adobe Premier
Using the Canon lenses was great as I had auto focus control but the Cosina lens (for a Pentax camera, M42 screw mount) was very sharp. Focus to infinity was possible but some shots I could see that it wasn't completely sharp enough. I struggled with the Cosina as its aperture was open at f1.8 with the dial being already broken. This meant I could only really use it for cloudy moments as I couldn't drop the aperture down enough to get rid of the sun out of the shot.
Just a sequence of video I shot with my Canon 60D. Shot in Dublin, Ireland on 30th of August 2013.
In truth I was trying out shooting video with Magic Lantern for the first time. My lens was a Canon 50mm f1.8 with a Hoya polariser filter attached. F-stop was around f2 or 3-ish. I was shooting at 1/250 aperture but it turned out like regular speed.
This is also my first time trying out Adobe Premier. Yeah, silly of me to try for all these firsts today.
