Los Angeles is obviously my favorite place in the world, so videos like the ones above are like candy to me. Colin Rich went around the city shooting some beautiful time lapse photography in all kinds of place, high and low, safe and illegal (like the Hollywood sign, which you’re not allowed to get very close to). I’m pretty sure I can even see my apartment complex in the video, so that’s always fun as well. All in all it took six months to shoot all the video, and he used a ton of different pieces of fancy tech to make it all happen. For those of you curious, here’s the equipment he used:
Shot with a 5D MK II and a 7D. Zeiss 35, 50 1.4, 85 1.2, Canon 15mm, 24mm, 24-105, 70-300mm,MOCA Kessler Cineslider, revolution head, and various DIY contraptions I’ve built for zoom motor control.
I also thought he wrote a nice note at the end of the video saying, “Shooting time lapses is a labor of love and a study in patience.”
