    Atomium was built in Brussels in 1958 for the Brussels World's Fair. It was designed by engineer André Waterkeyn and shaped in the form of a unit cell of an iron crystal, only enlarged 165 billion times!

    All images of Atomium are copyright Atomium, but I was extremely fortunate to be allowed full access, after hours to create this project, purely for the love of photography, time-lapse and architecture and design.

    I want to thank everyone at Atomium for making me feel welcome and granting me access. I am eternally grateful!

    I shot this time-lapse over 5 nights and 2 days in my spare time whilst on a working trip to Brussels. In all I shot 27 sequences on my Canon 5Dii in CR2 (small) for speed of processing. I didn't need to be creating anything above 1920x1080 for this project.

    I was also extremely fortunate and thrilled to work again with my good friend Athar Saeed, who has once again crafted a fantastic soundtrack! THANK YOU Athar!

    Kit used:

    Canon 5D mkii
    Canon 24mm 1.2 prime
    Canon 17mm TS-E

    A few people have asked, and I wanted to re-iterate that the Atomium team was kind enough to grant me full written permission to shoot. Atomium is copyrighted.

  2. Just a sample, but it's pretty easy to do.

  3. Recorded part of our conversation last night with Skype open and Quicktime running in "New Screen Recording" mode in the "File" drop down menu. Very easy and very quick to get it going. Big files though - 20 min recording is over 500 mb. But if posted by students, that solves the size problem.
