When I travel, like most people, I like to photograph my experiences. However, I think at times people can get too caught up with photographing their surroundings as opposed to taking them in with their own eyes. When I travel I like to do something I call a "Time Lapse Travel Log". In order to get a time lapse shot, I need to take numerous photos. Working with RAW files, I can only take a limited amount of photos. I look at each shot in the video as a 'photo'. In a way, I think of it as having a 35mm camera with just one roll of film. I need to only take the shots that I like or the shots that matter. Since it takes a while to get one 'shot' or 'scene', I get the luxury of taking in the surroundings and it forces me to take a moment to slow down, as opposed to hurrying around to see as many sights and places as possible.
These shots were captured in Tokyo, Japan. All shots were within a five minute walk of Kinshicho Station. May 2017. Each shot had a two second shutter.
All of these time lapse shots are 4K ready. For any inquires about these time lapse shots, or any others, please contact me at 'email@example.com' or at +82 10.2481.1722.
I am based in Seoul, South Korea.
