Go Behind the Scenes with Talented Time-Lapse Photographer Michel Shinblum

Michael Shainblum is a name that has come up a few times on PetaPixel, and it’s always associated with a spectacular time-lapse that earns many a “beautifully done” and even the occasional “hot damn.” And now, thanks to The Creators Project, we get to go behind the scenes with Shainblum as he creates one of his masterpieces.

The last time we shared a beautiful landscape time-lapse, one commenter mentioned that they would love a behind the scenes or tutorial about how it’s done. This, in some ways, is an answer to that request. Shainblum is great at what he does, and in the video you get to see him work and hear a bit about the man behind the viewfinder.

Perhaps most encouraging is when Shainblum explains that you don’t need any crazy gear to capture amazing vistas like he does. “[It] really comes to down to planning as an artist and doing the preparation of the shot,” which means getting away from the city and any light pollution. After that, a prosumer DSLR, fast wide lens, tripod and the patience to work with tens of thousands of images in post takes care of the rest.

Of course, he does also cart around a motorized dolly to get those motion shots that really make a time-lapse stand out, but even those aren’t going to set you back as far as many a lens we know of. And besides, before you get to the point where you can afford that sort of thing, you can always lifehack some motion into your time-lapses with an egg timer.
