Watch! “Fall” – amazing timelapse covers many months – fall color changes in NYC

In Video by planetMitch4 Comments

This really is cool – a timelapse spanning many months of the color changes in Central Park in NYC showing the color changes of the leaves and trees all the way past when they fall off!

One of the most striking things about New York City is the fall colors and there’s no better place to view this then Central Park. I chose 15 locations in the park and revisited them 2 days a week for six months, recording all camera positions and lens information to create consistency in the images. All shots were taken just after sunrise.

Not sure exactly how Jamie Scott managed it – you’ll notice the sky for example seems to be taken maybe from one specific day because the clouds would obviously not match over many months – but the colors in the leaves changing seems pretty cool.

Thoughts?

What do you think? How’d he manage it?

He said he filmed it in late 2011-early 2012 – but just only released it – how long did it take to fully put together?

There must be some compositing going on. I didn't see any humans in any of the shots but in one shot, at 2:06 I see ducks that seem to be taken from a single shoot. And I love the pan at 2:06 but trees to the left are loosing their leaves while trees on the right are turning color. Beautiful, but there is more to the story. Thanks for the video, Morgan

Just awesome. I wish I new how he did it.

That's fantastic. I've been racking my brain with him setting up sliders, and time lapse equipment in exactly the same place over several months to capture the stills he needed. But I'm puzzled as to how perfect it looks. I'd expect some frames not to match up, but that seems to work great. Even moreso with the slider/movement.

That may not be slider movement at all - it could be him simply cropping the full size images and moving within the original resolution of the camera. Since this is a 'video', there's plenty of resolution in the stills to move a 1920x1080 image around inside there.
