„one of the most therapeutic experiences I have ever felt“

Existence - Michael Shainblum

Existence – Michael Shainblum

Usually I try to find my own words for the things I post here. But this is so beautifully said, I need to share it:

„It’s been almost a year since I started my journey into time-lapse photography. This project has been an ongoing process for about 4 months. There was a lot of trial and error involved, and I spent many sleepless nights in many different unexpected places. Creating this film has taught me about patience, and what it really takes to achieve the shot that you dream about in your head. I realized through the process that the gear isn’t as important as the passion you put within your work.

This short video is called EXISTENCE. The video is a statement not only about time and progression, but also a statement about the world we have created for ourselves. The basis of the video contrasts the two extremes of life itself: the urban metropolis, and the beauty outside the city. I love to stargaze. Watching the milky-way float across the sky is one of the most therapeutic experiences I have ever felt. If you haven’t experienced it, then I strongly recommend taking the time to do so.


Thank you Michael Shainblum.

Hyper-Lapse by Dan Eckert



Dan Eckert was the first using the term „hyperlapse“ in the title of the video „Hyper-Lapse“. The video shows the view from a railroad track near the border California/Nevada. Dan Eckert used a motorized Meade telescope head to realize the pans but leaving the track he also walked his tripod. Nice clouds in there, vast landscapes to lose oneself in.
