I have shared many time-lapse videos on this blog over the past couple of years, but I have never shared a time-lapse video created by one of our students. A small handful of students have toyed around with time-lapse photography but only two advanced students have used this incredibly time-intensive technique as their curricular focus for the semester.
Isaac Hockenbarger is just about ready to finish his junior year at Topeka West and has been working with time-lapse photography during the past semester. Isaac combines hundreds of individual photographs together in a video-editing program to create his videos. After the video is complete he adds background music as a final touch. For the final critique of the semester Isaac created his video using a Lomokino camera. The Lomokino shoots 144 frames on a roll of 35mm film, creating a vintage-effect of past Super 8 video cameras. A total of almost 400 frames were used in creating this video.
Issac's final video was by far the best of the semester and I am extremely excited to share it with you!
