Construction Destruction Site (Tilt-Shift Time-Lapse)

Working the site working my eardrums.

Working the site working my eardrums.

Thought I would share what I have been experiencing over the past week.  Thirteen stories down and eight hundred meters toward the river is a fairly large apartment construction site.  It’s a normal construction the majority of the time, but last week they brought in the noise with cement hammers to break up a temporary on site road.  For a week, from 7 AM until 6 PM, the ratt-a-tatt-tatt of those machines reigned over the neighborhood.  On Friday I stuck my camera out the window for about a half hour, capturing 600 images, to bring you this short 20 second time-lapse clip.  I hope you enjoy it more than I have.

NOTE: the audio is a reenactment.

Shanghai Bus Tour (Time Lapse)

Approaching the Bund area along the Huangpu River is Shanghai.  The Pearl TV Tower is off in the distance.

In this video we travel around the Puxi side of China.  The tour begins at Peoples Square facing the Nanjing Walking Street and makes a quick loop around the square before heading out towards the Huangpu River where we catch a glimpse of the Pearl TV Tower.  After a daring u-turn we travel down the extent of the Bund before we take another u-turn and travel through Old Town near the Yu Gardens.  Finally we head back towards People’s Square through Xintiandi.

I have been working on a larger project recently involving time-lapse photography.  There is still a lot of shooting and work to be done but here is a little teaser.  Let me know what you think.

Chickity China the Chinese Chicken Chuck Wagon

I have been busy in China taking care of many things, some of which come fully feathered.  Check out my latest companions at the salad bar.  These guys were extremely suspicious of the clicking camera and would not go near the roughage with the camera nearby.  So I tried a few different locations until finally they began to hammer away at the greens.  Luckily this timed out perfectly with the Muppets audio.

This is my first real attempt at time lapse but I hope to do more in the near future.  Just looking for those perfect scenes… here in China they should not be hard to find.

Prize to those who can think of the best name for these chickens.
