Manchester Timelapse – Observingtime

My journey into timelapse started with creating a video about my homecity, Manchester. I wanted to capture the dynamic nature of the city, and knew that timelapse would be the perfect medium. I think it’s important to take a step back every now and again, and watch what is unfolding around you. Timelapse is the perfect excuse, you can spend anywhere from 5 minutes to 5 hours in a single location.

Over 100 hours of work went into this video, combining 20,000 photos over the course of 2 months. The video was shot across the city centre, with a small dash into Salford Quays.
