Julian Tryba Explains the Process Behind His Layer-Lapse

Publish date:

Julian Tryba's "Boston Layer-Lapse" puts a twist on time-lapse by depicting several different times of day in one frame.

He tells The Creators Project about his process, "The process begins with scouting locations by walking around the city and doing google image searches to build a list of the locations I want to shoot at (made a google map with lots of pins). When I go to shoot at a location I'll have the music in mind which sometimes influences how I frame a shot. After hanging out for a few hours I'll head home, and download all the files (usually about 50GB). Next I do color correction in Lightroom to make the images pop. Once the image sequence looks good I import it into After Effects. Once in After Effects, I cut out all the different objects, and regions using what's called a layer masking tool. The last step is listening to the music and making the different layers respond to the song."
