Los preciosos atardeceres de Ibiza y su espectacular cielo lleno de estrellas al paso de la Vía Láctea son algunos de los protagonistas de mi nuevo vídeo Ibiza Lights III.
Ibiza Lights III es el último capítulo de la serie Ibiza Lights y, como en anteriores trabajos, se mantiene mi intención de mostrar Ibiza desde un punto de vista que normalmente no se ofrece de la isla.
Ha sido un excelente año repleto de viajes a nuevos lugares, oportunidades y experiencias, que me han brindado la posibilidad de conocer a grandes fotógrafos del timelapse como Dustin Farrel, Enrique Pacheco o Daniel López.
Gracias a mi anterior vídeo, Ibiza Lights II, he visto reconocido mi trabajo y eso me ha dado fuerzas para seguir creando timelapses.
Las imágenes fueron hechas con una Canon 5D Mark II y Canon 5D Mark III he utilizado los objetivos de Canon 16-35mm, Canon 24-70mm, Nikon 14-24mm. La mayoría de las tomas nocturnas fueron hechas en F/2.8, ISO 1600, 3200.
Para el movimiento he usado una gran herramienta: el slider de Dynamic Perception.
Para las puestas de Sol he utilizado la aplicación para iPhone PhotoPills, con la cual es posible planificar las tomas, y con la que puedes visualizar la trayectoria de sol y luna en realidad aumentada.
Para compensar las luces en los amaneceres y atardeceres he utilizado el software LrTimelapse.

The breathtaken sunsets of the island of Ibiza and its spectacular star-filled sky with Milky Way are some of the main characters of my new video Ibiza Lights III.
Ibiza Lights III is the last video in the Ibiza Lights series and, as in previous works, my intention remains the same: to show Ibiza from a point of view that is usually not shown.
It’s been an excellent year for me, full of trips to new places, opportunities and experiencies that have given me the chance to meet great timelapse photographers like Dustin Farrel, Enrique Pacheco or Daniel López.
Thanks to my previous video, Ibiza Lights II, I’ve seen my work recognized and that has given me the strength to continue creating new timelapse videos.
All images were made using a Canon 5D Mark II, a Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 16-35mm, Canon 24-70mm, Nikon 14-24mm lens. Most of night shots were taken with the aperture F/2.8 and ISO 1600, 3200.
The camera movement was achieved using a great tool: the Dynamic Perception slider.
I have used the iPhone app PhotoPills to plan the shots and sunsets, and also to predict the Sun&Moon paths using its augmented reality viewers.
I also employed LrTimpelapse software to compensate exposure in sunrise and sunset shots.

Inhale the fresh air, smell the refreshing scent of the green pine forests glowing above black volcano sands, no sound but the wind in the trees. A deep blue sky matches with the blue atlantic ocean far below. Epic volcanic trails lead trough an unique archaic landscape. Feel the elements. Be yourself, at the “Island in the Sky”.
This short film, a homage to the beautiful Island of La Palma - "Europe's Hawaii" - was like a never ending project for me. More than one and a half years of work.... photographing, processing, re-processing, selecting and de-selecting footage, some weeks filming…
I had certain pictures in mind - the scenes, locations, and moods. Every interesting place I had spotted during many stays on the Island while Hiking or guiding Bike Groups was considered.
I hiked up Volcanoes, stayed awake all night on stormy ridges, slept like a dead on the beach next morning. Pre-processed nights footage at the Apartment later, to validate what scenes worked, or needed to be repeated. Hurried back up the mountains before sunset for new setups. Finally got some rest and watched the clouds and stars move. Feeling small in the universe. And tired and dizzy, as well.
Night-Timelapse filming is an art, a struggle to live from, tough on your biorhythm – and needs a lot of passion, love and dedication. Passion for the work, love for nature and wilderness, being alone in the night. Back at the office in the timelapse studio it needs dedication and endurance in front of my workstations working trough the image data.
Which is the toughest part for me - I am not the office guy. I hate sitting in front of a Computer screen too much. And that is what you do with Timelapse. Way too much. After cleaning up the project, 906.65 GB and 83846 RAW images and movie-sequences remained for processing. And there is no automatism, each software at the workflow needs to be fed with each sequence separately, to deliver results...
On some key scenes of this film I have even worked over several months, trying different variations on color-reprocessing, iterating them many times. I am still not sure if they are good now. You judge.
