In January 2011 I made my first timelapse. 'Dubai 1.0'. 15 months on and 'Dubai 2.0' has been coded, in beta and now is in 'gold release' ;)
I have used the same kit, albeit for one new lens and a couple of ND filters. My camera is dying :(
Photographed over 2.5 weeks, one to two sequences per night.
The soundtrack is by The American Dollar, used under license - thanks John and Rich for everything.
You can find out more about the band and download 9 of their 'best of' tracks for FREE here:
