'practice contentment' a time lapse journey through SE Asia from Conrad Olivier
One of the most challenging things for me personally is to slow down while out creating images and creating time-lapse footage. Aside from all of the technical and logistical details, having the patience to allow the scene to unfold is a big part of my creative process... this doesn't come naturally.
No one is directed within my time-lapse sequences - everything that you see is from the vantage point of being an observer in a compressed time frame contrasted with different scenes that may have similarities/contain understated metaphors.
Very large panoramic photography is still quite gratifying, however, pushing the record button on a digital video camera and then cutting the clips together wasn't going to cut it for my creative needs when it comes to video. Time-lapse and parallax editing have presented the most challenging scenarios for me.
