Margaret River - Land Of Light -A time lapse video of southwest Western Australia

January 23, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Situated in between the crystal clear waters of world-class surf beaches, awe-inspiring native forests and countless top-notch wineries lies the town of Margaret River in southwest Western Australia. Famed for it's pristine nature, high-quality local products and plenty of outdoor-activities, Margaret River draws-in tens of thousands of visitors each year, who are looking for that special "get-away from it all".

In this (my first ever!) short time-lapse video of Margaret River and it's surroundings, I showcase some - but by far not all - of the attractions and beautiful places this area has to offer. You are taken into mysterious Boranup forest, renowned for it's unique display of the endemic Karri trees a true landmark sight! You get to see Hamelin Bay, a favorite with locals and tourists alike. This scenic swimming beach has picture-book blue water, resident eagle rays and the remains of an old timber jetty, that is a reminder of the once-booming timber trade of the region. We visit world-famous "Surfers Point" and the mouth of the Margaret river and witness stunning "only-in-WA" sunrises and sunsets.

Discover many more 'hidden spots' of the region that are just waiting to be explored!

This is my first ever attempt at making a time-lapse and also my first ever full-length video, so please excuse any small hiccups.

All clips were shot and processed over 7 weeks. I have captured a total of 13500 frames and combined these into 62 short clips, some of which didn't make the final cut, though.

On average, each of these clips required one hour for shooting(incl planning, set-up, etc) and one hour for processing.

In the process of creating this video I learned a lot about shooting and processing time-lapse videos and general video processing and am contemplating making a sequel, so please let me know in a comment below if that would something you're interested in!

All footage was shot on my trusty Canon EOS 6D and a Canon EF16-35mm /f4L IS USM or a Tamron SP 70-200 mm f/2.8 Di VC USD lens. The motion was controlled with a Syrp Genie motion control device and I stabilized the whole set-up on my Induro CT313 carbon fibre tripods.
