UK-based photographer Brendan Barry is known for his unique cameras made of a melon, a pineapple, a mannequin, even a loaf of bread! After constructing a camper camera and a container camera, Brendan has now gone even larger: he turned an entire floor of a skyscraper into a giant working camera with a built-in darkroom.
This photographer is creating a 30 year long timelapse project of New York City
The New York Skyline is probably one of the most fluid in the world. Its outline is ever-changing with new buildings going up and old ones being replaced on a regular basis. Photographer and filmmaker Joe DiGiovanna spotted this from the window of his apartment in Weehawken, New Jersey, and decided that he wanted to capture it in timelapse.
French fellow timelapse photographer Emeric Le Bars went to meet with Joe to interview him about the project. Joe told Emeric that the project was born from a love of the city and the incredible view he had from his apartment. His mission is to film and post the sunrise over NYC every day for at least 30 years.
This 960fps slow motion footage makes the busy streets of New York look frozen in time
It’s difficult for me to imagine that anything can move slowly on the busy streets of New York. But thanks to his super slo-mo video, filmmaker Glen Vivaris made people and cars appear almost as they’re frozen in time. All it took was a smartphone and an idea, and the result looks like a tense and almost surreal movie scene.
New York’s “Vessel” is under fire over rights-grab photo policy for tourists
The Vessel, in New York City’s latest luxury neighbourhood, is Hudson Yards’ fancy tourist trap. But it’s also a rights grab when it comes to photography. Initially, spotted by Gothamist, two particular clauses in the Hudson Yard Terms & Conditions were extremely overbearing. Terms and conditions to which you agree as soon as you enter the place.
Those clauses have since been combined into a new “My social media posts” clause. The new clause is a little shorter and combines the two previous clauses together with a little more clarification. But it still looks like pretty rights grabby to me.
Four reasons why it’s nearly impossible to fly a drone in New York City
New York is a beautiful, lively city full of photographic opportunities. However, it can be a nightmare for drone pilots. In this video, documentary filmmaker Griffin Hammond explains why it’s nearly impossible and mostly illegal to fly a drone in New York City.
Watch these spectacular aerial shots of New York filmed in 12K!
We’ve all seen spectacular views of NYC a bunch of times. However, none of them could ever match the quality of this UHD video recently posted by Phil Holland on Youtube. Using three Red 8K cameras, he ended up creating beautiful panoramas in 12K resolution. Unfortunately, Youtube can only play videos up to 8K at the moment so we can’t see its full potential for now. Regardless, this ultra high-resolution video is still such an eye-candy.

In honor of the Dark Sky Week, they created a timelapse that imagines what New York City would look like with starry skies, without light pollution.
Photographer captures New Yorkers for over 40 years using a 1940s camera
“Everybody now has a selfie with a phone,” photographer Louis Mendes says. This is why he chooses to be different. He has been photographing people and streets of New York for over forty years using a Speed Graphic camera from 1940s. His camera is followed by his classy ‘40s style, and The New York Post has made a short video about this legendary New York photographer.
How I stitched 105 exposures to create a 620MP night-to-day panorama of New York City
Created from 105 individual exposures taken over many hours, “New York Transitions I” captures the dawn of a new day in New York City. I wanted to portray the magic of the skyline at both nighttime and daytime in a single image so I planned to create a VAST photo that transitioned from night to day as you move from left to right in the image. Furthermore, I wanted to create the photo at a special time when the city looked particularly radiant, so I waited for a snowstorm to gild the city in white…
Heavy clouds thick with snow blanketed the sky on an unusually cold morning. After reviewing the forecast for many inches of snow followed by a sudden clearing of the sky at night, I decided to prepare for a photoshoot of the city from the top of one of the tallest buildings between downtown Manhattan and the iconic Midtown Manhattan skyline.
Watch New York skyline “play music” in this incredible layered timelapse
Just when you think you’ve seen it all when it comes to timelapse, Julian Tryba creates something you want to watch over and over again. A few years after making his fantastic Boston Layer-Lapse, Julian has created one of New York City. This time, there were 10 times more layers, so he came up with the solution to automate the process.
The 2:40 minute timelapse took Julian 22 Trips to New York, 352 hours of filming, and 232,000 photos taken. He paid over $1,400 paid only in parking fees and drove almost 10,000 miles. Was it worth it? Oh yes, it was!
