Time-Lapse Video: Toronto Tempo

Posted by Avital Pinnick on October 23, 2011

I was born in Toronto, grew up in Kitchener, and returned to TO for my first two degrees. I loved it. Well, OK, I don’t miss the hot, muggy summer I lived in Tartu, a high-rise student dorm with rooms smaller than a jail cell, according to my father who designed the Edmonton Remand Center, but I loved living in the Bay/Bloor area for six years.

Ryan Edmond made this time-lapse video of Toronto. I can’t get over how much the city has changed. It’s still beautiful.

HDR Time-Lapse Video

Posted by Avital Pinnick on October 9, 2011

Beautiful, and bordering on insanity. HDR (high dynamic range) photography refers to the technique of combining three different exposures of the same shot so that details that the very dark and very light areas are evened out. In other words, it allows you to see details that would normally have been lost in shadow, like the rocks on a hillside in front of a rising sun. This video, Landscapes: Volume 2, is the work of Dustin Farrell, a very talented photographer and video artist. His company site is Crew West. This video is worth watching full screen.

Thanks to Miriyummy, who passed this on to me from You Got to be Kidding.

City Limits: Time-Lapse Video

Posted by Avital Pinnick on May 8, 2011


City Limits is a beautiful time-lapse video by French Canadian motion photographer, Dominic Boudreault. You can see a larger version on his site, He made this video over a period of six months, with photographs taken in Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto, Manhattan, and Chicago. I can’t figure out how he was able to set up a tripod in some of these locations. The photos are so detailed that it’s best to watch this video in full-screen mode.

His time-lapse video of Quebec City is also worth a look — 2600 frames, shot over four months. Most of us just want to crawl under the covers when the temperatures get that low. To photograph all those frames in a Quebec winter takes real fortitude. Impressive!

Thanks to Mirj of Miryummy for the heads up.

Another Time-Lapse Video: Eclectic 3.0

Posted by Avital Pinnick on June 1, 2010

This is the last time-lapse video I’m posting for a while, OK? 🙂 The Yosemite video reminded me of how much I admire Ross Ching’s work. He posted this video about a year ago, as the last in his “Eclectic” series. It’s my favourite of the three. Truly humbling. If you thought time-lapse video was mainly for showing buildings being built and flowers blossoming, watch this.

On his site he posts an HD version of Eclectic 3 and some background information. If you want to try your hand at this kind of photography/video, check out his video on the making of Eclectic 2. It covers both tools and software.
