New Workshop: Photographing Group Portraits!


Inspiration: Miniature Melbourne Time-Lapse by Nathan Naso

By Jules Ebe on April 28th 2013

This short tilt-shift time-lapse film features the city of Melbourne, Australia and its plethora of events and festivals held throughout the year. The 10-month long project was shot and edited by Landscape Photographer Nathan Kaso. His body of work has developed to include both stills and time-lapse after learning the basics working in video production. The happy marriage of still and motion photography has resulted in several gorgeous short films and a few award nominations.

What I appreciate most about the film is the effect cast by the use of tilt-shift. It takes a moment to realize you are watching real life and not some Claymation video, Mister Rogers style.



The tilt-shift effect was created in Photoshop, and then compiled in LRTimelapse and After Effects. Final editing was completed in Premiere Pro CS6.

The sound effects and audio mixing was also well executed, thanks to Tom Day.
