Snow Globe L.A. Is A Shaped Bokeh Time Lapse In A Snow Globe
It is not often that we see tow of our favorite techniques used in a single film. photographers Colin Mika & Brandon Vedder of All Cut Up Films created this beautiful time lapse of Los Angeles with a twist (or actually two).
The first is that the entire film was shot through a snow globe, which I assume means that the camera was upside down for the entire duration of the shoot.
The second is the use of paper cut filters to achieve a shaped bokeh.
Here is ACUF describes it:
“Snow Globe Los Angeles” was created using over 4000 still images shot on a custom built camera rig. The effect was achieved using a Canon 5D MII, a homemade tilt-shift style lens, a light bulb filled with water, and paper cut outs to create shaped bokeh.
