London – Breathe

London – Breathe

Mood video about London

This is very short story about my visiting England. I was shooting it 1 day, and weather was not so friendly(Surprisingly to hear it from Siberian inhabitant).
Hope you’ll enjoy it.

Видео-настроение о замечательной столице Великобритании. Съемки велись один день при условиях недружелюбной погоды(наверное удивительно слышать это от человека с сердца Сибири). Надеюсь видео на секунду перенесет вас в ту атмосферу, что я испытал. Приятного просмотра.

Crete Balos Beach

Crete Balos Beach

Oh yes… Balos beach.
This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. Thank god I had my gear with me. I got the Sony Nex FS700 just 1 day before we departed for Crete. I only had the camera and a mini tripod. There for I was limited with camera movements but when you have a such beautiful place infront of your lens it shouldn’t be a problem no mather what. The rest of the gear that I ordered was still on its way so I grabed what I had and left.

The beach is located on a remote location. You need at least a Jeep to get near it and then it takes 45min by foot to get to it. The most amazing part of the experiance is the view because the first time you see the beach is from the top. You walk 20min through a rocky path (or take the Donky Taxi for 5eur 🙂 ) and then suddenly the view opens infront of you with the beach in all its glory. I was so determined to document this place that once I was already at the bottom and I realized that I have forgotten my battery charger in the car I went up the path again to get it. The path itself is hard to a point that some people only walk to the view from the top to see it. Trust me… It’s worth the walk! 😉

“Simple and aesthetic, yet very compelling demonstration of all those little things we do love in mountains!” – Kamil Tamiola (Alpine Photographer) alpine-photography.com

Namibian Nights

Namibian Nights

It’s not easy to come up with something new when you visit the same place every year for more than a decade. Over the years Marsel has created the most extensive and most popular night photography portfolio of Namibia on this planet, and two years ago he decided it was time to take it to the next level.

The idea was to create a night photography timelapse video featuring his most popular subjects in this amazing country: the fairytale-like quivertrees and the eery, dead camelthorn trees in Deadvlei – something that had never been done before. But instead of going for static scenes, Marsel decided to add movement to the scenes by using a dolly system.

All scenes were shot during the night with Nikon D3, D3s and D4 cameras. We used small headlights for selectively lighting trees and rocks, and we sometimes used the moon. The brighter the scene, the more moon there was at the time. For the arch scene we timed our shoot exactly with moonset, which involved quite a bit of calculating and planning. But the hardest one of all was probably the mist scene in Deadvlei. Mist in Deadvlei only occurs around five times a year, so we had to keep a close eye on the weather predictions and many attempts were unsuccessful. When we finally got it right, the results far exceeded our expectations and show Deadvlei as no one has ever seen it before.

Each second of video consists of 30 photographs. In total, Marsel shot more than 16,000 images over a period of two years for this project.

The video won First Prize in the 2012 Travel Photographer Of The Year Awards.
