Video: Yosemite Beautifully Time-Lapsed in HD
If you still haven't been to Yosemite National Park, might this be your tipping point? Sheldon Neill and Colin Delehanty, who became friends through Vimeo, spent a handful of days collaborating on this beautiful time-lapse video for what they are calling Project Yosemite.
It was done using a Canon 5D Mark II with Canon L and Zeiss CP.2 Lenses. The motion bits were accomplished with a six-foot aluminum dolly from Dynamic Perception.
For Neil, time-lapse photography is much more satisfying than still photography, in which he says people tend to go sight to sight, snap a picture and move on. "With time-lapse photography you get out, bust out a lawn chair and just set up your tripod and sit there for a few hours while a camera takes stills," he explained in a behind-the-scenes documentary (embedded below), "and you just kind of surround yourself with the environment; just take in everything it has to offer. It's what I love about it."
Huell investigates a onetime tradition, the Yosemite Firefall, and experiences the natural version of the "Firefall" at Horsetail Fall. Huell calls it "one of the most magnificent sights you'll ever see in your life."
