Time Lapse Photography of the 2009 World Series

New York-based freelancer and PhotoShelter user, Robert Caplin, likes to experiment. Earlier this year, he picked up a Canon 5D Mark II and started to play with the video options. But instead of recording something banal like taxis outside his window, he decided to make a music video of his sister.

That experience got him hooked on the moving pictures. He helped create a short film entitled Betrayed, and then started playing around with time-lapse photography with a static mount as well as a moving mount that is typically used with telescopes to track the movement of stars.

A few weeks ago, he stopped by our offices to show us some of his tests, which were just a pre-cursor of his time lapse photography of the 2009 World Series.

Not only is it well-composed and interesting to watch, but it seems like great stock footage material…

And yes, he also shot some stills of the game.

    Dear Allen Murabayashi and Robert Caplin, Thank you for posting this incredible time-lapse! I really enjoyed it and I hope that it leads a ton of traffic to your site. As a promo piece, it is fantastic. Still, I must point out the blatant irony here that you CANNOT sell it using Photoshelter. You could sell it on iStock or a dozen other sites but sadly Photoshelter only allows for the licensing /uploading of traditional photographic file formats. So, I say good work Robert Caplin and please use some of your new publicity to hold Photoshelters feet to the fire. best wishes, David Marx http://www.davidmarx.com http://www.thelightroomlab.com
