Incredible project: Into The Atmosphere

Let’s find out about this incredible project: Into The Atmosphere by Michael Shainblum.

Sometimes art is just about capturing reality as we never thought about it before. This project is doing just that, showing us how amazing the world we live in is.

Into The Atmosphere is a timelapse video by San Diego-based photographer, Michael Shainblum and The Creators Project, that shows epic, natural spots in California- from Santa Barbara and Marin County, to La Jolla and Gaviota. Shainblum’s work will captivate you with footage of giant fog banks seen from mountain tops, God rays shooting into the middle of the desert, and cloud-covered seascapes all throughout the west coast.

Behind this beautiful piece of art there is hard work going on for about a year with an estimated 75,000 images taken, and about 12,400 made it into the three and a half minute piece. Michael Shainblum’s “Into The Atmosphere” timelapse was made possible with Dynamic Perception and Emotimo.

He didn’t use hyper-expensive gear, but rather a DSLR camera, a fast wide lens, a mechanical dolly system and some serious time spent with the Adobe Suite. Everything else comes down to organization and patience, or, in his own words: “it really comes down to planning as an artist and doing the preparation of the shot.

You need to be away from light pollution. You need to be away from the city.”Image121

The music from the video is “Remember Me” by Thomas Bergersen and some of the locations are Mono Lake, Anza Borrego Desert, Alabama Hills, Trona Pinnacles, Big Sur, Mount Laguna, Santa Maria, Yosemite, Gaviota, The Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, La Jolla Coves, Santa Ynez, the San Francisco Coast, and the Santa Barbara Mountains.2048
