As I was surfing the internet, as I do on an almost daily basis, I came across this cool time lapse video of Las Vegas, shot by film maker Philip Bloom. Given the fact that I live in Las Vegas, it was nice to see the city through someone else’s eyes.
It appears as most of the video was shot at The Signature at MGM Grand.
The video was uploaded to Philip Bloom’s Vimeo Channel about 3 years ago. Make sure to scroll down to see and learn about the video, as well as to learn about Philip Bloom.
Via the video page:
“My first attempt at HDR tone mapping timelapse. We start off with normal timelapse and then go into the 3 and 7 bracket tone mapped HDR timelapses.
I wanted to create a sense of colour and insanity that Las Vegas gives you. All from one view point. My balcony. With that restriction can you do it? Well I did it before in my two previous timelapses…
This was harder in a way as there was no single focal point like in the Sydney Harbour piece or the Space Needle piece. I made a virtue of the HDR tone mapping with the change of pace in the music and also my use of bookends which I love.”
