Tell us about your process with these moment-in-time timelapse gifs, right from setting up to producing the final image. What usually inspires you to create these?

Although landscapes tend not to change too quickly, I’ve always been fascinated by how quickly the surrounding environment can change in a day, hours or even within minutes, and completely alter the resulting view. When you compare two photos taken from the same place, but at completely different times, the difference tends to be staggering. This is why I have tried to capture these transformations with timelapses.

Whenever I decide to put my camera down on a tripod and start filming, it typically means that I have come across a remarkable view that not only I would like to document, but also enjoy, as compared to taking photos, the long process of waiting a long time for filming allows me to sit down and actually enjoy my surroundings (despite always having to make sure the battery of my camera has not died yet). Not all situations are ideal for taking timelapses, as some sort of a change in the landscape is needed or else the timelapse simply looks like a photo, which is why scenes full of moving clouds, waves, people or even the sun are ideal. Then, after the fun part in the field comes the task of speeding up the video, and then exporting the frames into photoshop in order to make the gifs, which is always tricky in finding the right frame rate in order to portray the beauty of change in the landscape correctly.
