Master Any Lighting Setup With The Help Of set.a.light 3D

A Cinematic Infrared Timelapse Based on the Dramatic Beauty of Salzburg

Inspired by the moody B&W long exposure photography using ND filters (usually of architecture), I really wanted to capture this kind of dark aesthetic, but in timelapse motion.

However, this style of photography requires an intense level of post-production on a single image using hundreds of luminosity masks – so I decided to see if I could achieve a similar look & feel through infrared photography. I converted a Sony A6300 with a 830 NM filter through (who I really recommend btw).

Probably much to the dismay of timelapse purists, I prefer to shoot 4k video and simply speed it up in post. I’m just trying to speed up all my workflows and increase my creative output, and I’ve found this to be the quickest workflow.

Apart from that, it’s really just a matter of weather, waiting for the right clouds & light, and finding the right spot!

Thanks for your help Matt.
