Manchester Timelapse - Observingtime

Added by | 7 yearss ago

Even after living here for 21 years, Manchester is still my favourite city. 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.

Various techniques and equipment were used to capture the footage, including a home-built motion controlled dolly. The long sweeping moves were captured by moving the camera after each photo. This can be a very time consuming process, but the results are certainly worth it. More information about the technique can be found here:

It has been my first full timelapse movie, and I have plenty of ideas for my next work. If you want to keep track of my work, please follow me on the usual social media channels:

If you're interested in learning how to shoot timelapses like these, there is a full guide to the basics of timelapse photography, available on my website just click 'Timelapse Guide' at the top.

The music is 'More Than This' by Electric Joy Ride, you can find them at:
