Shooting timelapse, even timelapse of the Milky Way has become pretty common these days. With the high ISO performance that most cameras have now and the number of fast f/1.4 wide-angle primes available, it’s a lot easier than it used to be (if you can find a dark sky). But what if you want to really challenge yourself to make something that’s… a little different?
That’s what Australian photographer Jason De Freitas did recently when he not only photographed the Milky Way with a 35mm film camera, but photographed it repeatedly, every minute for two and a half hours to produce this pretty amazing timelapse.
According to an Instagram post, Jason shot the film using four rolls of TMAX P3200 film, with several days of scanning and editing to produce just a 12-second clip. It’s a lot of work, but it certainly seems to have paid off!
Jason says in an Instagram post that he plans to release a tutorial explaining exactly how he made it. So, keep an eye out for that!
