Guatemala Night Sky Views and Time-lapse Video


Our eyes are so slow or so fast to catch some movements. I have always love to capture pictures that our eyes don’t see or that pass so fast or so slow that our memory by a instant can see, A photo is a static view but when we merge a sequence of photos produces a dinamic picture, this is the video base. But I have discovered a way to combine a artistic picture with a motion: Time-lapse, the technique was builded on the first film years but perfectioned on 80’s by Ron Fricke with a custom photographic camera. From this years, a lot of photographers have experimented this technique. The digital age offer a lot of possibilities to explote this art method.

I love the image, and sounds and I’m experimenting to make my first film based on photography with time-lapse, let share with you my first production with some experiments done around Guatemala City, Villa Nueva and Amatitlán with night skies. It is awesome to see evidence of how our Earth is so alive even while we sleep. In near future I will publish the first short film about Guatemala City. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have filming it.
