Hiker timelapse wearing out shoes hiking from Mexico to Canada

shoe-timelapse

Andrew Holzschuh took a photo of his shoes every day as he hiked the Pacific Coast Trail, then made a fun timelapse of his shoes' daily wear and tear.

Many hikers forgo hiking boots for trail runners on a well-marked trail like this. Eagle-eyed viewers who know the trail picked up on a detour, to which Andrew replied:

We were forced to skip like 15 miles of trail at crater lake because of forest fires (because it would have been illegal and stupid to walk a section of trail that's on fire) we also had to backtrack here and there for random reasons. to be honest I dont know how many miles we actually walked. but I think it might have ended up being more than the 2663.5

Bonus video: he also grew an impressive beard.

Amazing montage of 4k timelapse footage

Video director Paul Richardson created this beautiful showreel of his favorite time-lapse clips to date.

Shooting timelapse requires a lot of patience and forward thinking. Some shots took multiple attempts to get the right light, others required whole days just to capture a few seconds of footage. There’s a careful balance of trying to predict the future, and just being determined enough to do everything it takes to get the shot.

Beautiful timelapse of Moab, Utah

Photographer Ron Risman runs timelapse video workshops and the results are transcendent. Here's his latest, called "Dark Skies of Utah." Ron said to me:

"Dark Skies of Utah" was captured by eleven photographers last month in Utah during a 5-day Timelapse workshop. Eight of the eleven photographers had never captured timelapses before they attended the class. The results are simply breathtaking.

The photographers had instruction over a 5-day period and were given access to motion control gear. Some used them, some didn't. This film is the result of their work after just a day or two of instruction. The timelapses are made up of over 5400 images.
