Santorini timelapse

Time-lapse photography is a cinematography technique whereby each film frame is captured at a rate much slower than it will be played back. When replayed at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing. Time-lapse photography can be considered to be the opposite of high speed photography.

Processes that would normally appear subtle to the human eye, such as motion in the sky, become very pronounced. Time-lapse is the extreme version of the cinematography technique of undercranking, and can be considered a borderline form of stop motion animation.


Past weekend i had the pleasure of shooting a wedding at the beautiful island of Santorini,
for many people one of the best islands in the world.

For the first time i decided to try a few timelapse shots inspired by the magical scenery around me and of course from videos i’ve watched from time to time.Altough i got a long way till i get a result like the top guys(Phillip Bloom,Jason Magbanua,Patrick Moreau and the list goes on) …think i’m on the right track for a first timer..

this is the first edit with a lot of experimentation,
shots were all taken during the wedding day.
