It's been several weeks since I've been able to shoot this particular time lapse again. I especially wanted to shoot this one because it was the last night viewing at the Anglican Cathedral tower and also because the Liverpool ONE Wheel was in town. I was really fortunate with the weather. It was so clear that you can even make out traffic over on the other side of the Mersey!
This is sunset over 2 hours (3pm-5pm) 1,478 individual photos taken at 5 second intervals.
Things to look out for include:
- Liverpool ONE Wheel!
- Swinging crane on the far left
- Faint star near top edge
- Construction site activity, bottom right
- Someone in a red car parallel parking (badly), bottom edge
No soundtrack to this one, but I'd recommend an instrumental version of Coldplay's Clocks to listen to whilst viewing.
For technical info, check out my other time lapses. It's pretty much the same process although I'm learning refinements in the shooting aspect each time I do one of these.
A few timelapses and hyperlapses I have shot recently, mainly around where I work in the heart of Liverpool.
Made up of over 4000 individual photos. Some tweaking in After Effects.
Includes the moment the City came to a standstill to remember the 96 who died in the Hillsborough Disaster 25 years ago.
Music by my good friend Duncan MacKay.
All shot on Canon 550D.
I shot this over a six month period from December 2012 until June 2013, in my home city of Liverpool.
The city has many buildings of historic and cultural significance, not forgetting their aesthetic and architectural merit. Due to this, the city is used as a dramatic backdrop to many movies & TV series and frequently doubles for major cities around the world in the movies - London, New York, Chicago, St Petersburg & Moscow to name but a few.
To say that this is the only reason I chose Liverpool as the subject for my first film would be far from the truth. Whether you're Liverpool born and bred, moved in to the area, or came to university and never quite managed to make the effort go back home to mum and dad when you graduated, Liverpool becomes a part of you as you become a part of Liverpool.
That is to say, the reason came not from my head but from my heart and soul - consider this film my little love letter to the city - its architecture, its culture and most importantly, its people.
