Boston Layer-Lapse by Julian Tryba
This Layer-Lapse of Boston Julian Tryba is very different from the other traditional time-lapses or hyper-lapses: each part of the scene is lighted during a different time of the day.
Tryba spent more than 100 hours shooting this video and 350 hours for editing. He took about 150,000 photos. He used the Canon 6D, 7D cameras with 16-35, 24-105, Tokina 11-16 lenses. Editing was done with SpectraLayers Pro 2, Lightroom, After Effects, Photoshop, Excel, LRTimelapse, and Premier Pro.
Traditional time-lapses are constrained by the idea that there is a single universal clock. In the spirit of Einstein’s relativity theory, layer-lapses assign distinct clocks to any number of objects or regions in a scene. Each of these clocks may start at any point in time, and tick at any rate. The result is a visual time dilation effect known as layer-lapse.
Tryba explains: Everything I know about photography, editing, and animation I have taught myself in my free time during the past two years… learning the basic technical portion of time-lapse is not that time consuming, it can be learned in a matter of weeks by watching lots of tutorials. Things that are extremely difficult to master are creativity, developing your photographic eye, as well as creating a personal style that is true to yourself.
