Concerts and other live events are lengthy engagements, often lasting as much as multiple consecutive days. While promos, video shorts and photography can capture certain elements therein, they cannot contain the overall essence or the grand picture. This is where concert time-lapse photography excels. Concise and beautiful time-lapses are exactly what your concert needs to go over the totality of that fantastic weekend: from the building and breaking down of the stages, the dancing and laughing of the audience, to the rising and setting of the sun.
How Concert Time-Lapse Photography Works
Time lapses are at times an art, at times a science, and every time a beauty to behold. Capturing the perfect time lapse encompasses much more than setting up a camera and letting it sit for hours on end. It requires the patience to wait for that perfect shot, the creative eye to take it, and the right equipment to do it with.
The appropriate equipment can make or break the power of a well-shot time-lapse, and we come furnished with all the right gear. At the core of time-lapse photographic technology is the digital single-lens reflex (DSLR), which allows us the degree of control and customizable settings that time-lapse photography calls for.
One of the go-to cameras in our time-lapse photography toolkit is the GoPro Hero4 Black. Lightweight but highly modular, the compact Hero4 Black is perfectly suited for seeking that perfect shot. It doubles as a photo camera, the time lapse intervals of which span 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30, and 60 seconds of continuous shots captured at 12 MP stills for post-production.
With the help of our tripods, cameras and firmware, we are able to seize and contain the raw imagery that is concert time-lapse photography. But the job doesn’t end there! With the most advanced non-linear editing technology, we are able to truly bring the energy of the concert back to life.
If there’s a shadow too dark, Lightroom can illuminate it. If there’s a landscape that’s blurred, Photoshop can sharpen it. If there’s one moment of one frame that’s one second too long, After Effects can nix it with seamless precision. We work our digital magic back in the studio to deliver a time-lapse that is nothing more than visually stunning and absolutely breathtaking.
