24 Hours of Neon – Philip Bloom’s Stunning bit of HDR Video…

No Comments
movies, observations, Very Cool!

I am absolutely sucked in to all the fantastic work going on these days with DSLR photography and video and having recently purchased one of my own, am certainly looking forward to getting more and more creative with my own shooting. Philip Bloom is a London based Director and Filmmaker who has a TON of fantastic stuff online, much of it done in a learning/experimenting capacity. His tips are invaluable and there’s days of material to absorb.

His latest piece on Vimeo explores working with HDR Timelapse photography and the results are fascinating.. Everyone knows what timelapse is, but in case you don’t understand HDR photography, it’s essentially High Dynamic Range photography; (via wikipedia:”a set of techniques that allow a greater dynamic range of luminance between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than current standard digital imaging techniques or photographic methods.”).

The video itself is pretty stunning (I especially like all the stuff that starts around the 1:40 mark), and it’s helped by one of my favorite soundtrack pieces – ‘Moon’ by Clint Mansell… Even better, Philip has put a detailed 30 minute “commentary” track on his site about the technical stuff surrounding this undertaking, and this further enhances the piece. The shots of Vegas architecture and energy are well worth your time…
