A Time Lapse Shot Of 3 Locations At The Same Time

Everyone likes a good time lapse right? Well Philip Bloom just created one but it has a unique twist. Bloom's video was created with 3 cameras shooting simultaneously outside of his hotel window. He shot with a 5DMII, T2i, and T3i all shooting towards different areas of the landscape at different focal lengths.

I hope he books two rooms because I couldn't last more than 3 minutes in there with all those shutters going off!

Hah, I never thought about that

I guess this video gives a pretty good insight of the life of a time lapse addict

Do you know what he used to edit and then play the video? I didn't see it listed.

2.35:1 Aspect Ratio FTW.

Looks to me like he's shooting 4 time lapses. There's 3 on one window and 1 camera going off to the left.

excellent video. Any idea what he used to keep triggering the shutter?

can someone explain what's impressive about this?

I thought they were somehow talking about combining three exposures into the same shot, based on the title of this post, and I can see that a lot of work went into producing this, but it seems like just another time lapse to me.

it's impressive because it's Phillip Bloom. Once you get the ball rolling open a website write a book about how to use a 7D you get people to follow your blog, commercials on the website and then whatever you do you're a Michelangelo.

I agree that this is not some AMAZING time lapse but I think the fact that Bloom created it while he was traveling and shot it out of his hotel room is pretty inspiring in itself.

Most photographers/videographers sit back and complain about why they can't create good work and others go out and create regardless of their situation. I didn't post this because it was the best time lapse ever, I posted it to try and help inspire.

It is impressive to see someone devoted to their art form. There are many hours of work in this piece and I would bet the city of Seattle would love to have this to promote tourism.

Someone can please tell me how the cameras is powered? it's about some external power supply?
