Life imitating art

I came across a series of videos that are composed from a series of photographs taken using using time-lapse techniques and interesting lenses. I thought my photography nerd friends would especially like them.

I think they look like the models my brother used to make for his train set. Be sure to check out all the other videos by Keith Loutit and note that they’re available in HD for maximum viewing pleasure.

    I saw that Helpless one the other day, nifty. There was an article about how to do still photography with that effect the other day (all about angle and distance).

    Having only really looked at Vimeo recently, I must say it’s an awesome site. Puts Youtube to shame in a lot of ways.

    I saw one very similar just the other day. Very cool stuff – I’ve been meaning to do some more time-lapse stuff. I have one video on flickr that I made of a series of shots but it’s not very good.

    On a photography related note, someone sent me The year 2008 in photographs which contains some great photography. It contains some crap (and some stuff that’s only in there for the shock factor), but there’re some amazing shots in there too.

    Yeah its easy enough to do in Photoshop with a decent photo of at least some perspective.

    Using masking and blur techniques in Photoshop gets the same result of the photo looking like miniature models.

    Pretty cool. Stills shot in this way always make you stop for a sec.. seeing it in full motion is even more impressive.
