After over two years of shooting timelapse professionally, Paul Richardson decided to combine over 300,000 of his favorite images around Europe to make this beautiful 2-minute timelapse video. It took over 1000 hours, or approximately 7 hours per second of footage.
Shooting timelapse requires a lot of patience and forward thinking. Some shots took multiple attempts to get the right light, others required whole days just to capture a few seconds of footage. There’s a careful balance of trying to predict the future, and just being determined enough to do everything it takes to get the shot.
