Rail Construction through Time-Lapse. Focusing on how time-lapse photography can effectively document rail construction and development.
“With the likes of HS2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail hitting the headlines recently, it’s clear that major investments are being made to improve transport across the UK. How effective is time-lapse photography at showcasing major developments like these?” We consider this and look at some of our own work.
Typically, a time-lapse photograph archive facilitates the production of an edited sequence showing progress over a specific period of time. But the benefits of time-lapse images do not stop there.
Following on from the first instalment of this feature, we continue to reflect on some of our own work in various contexts time-lapsing complex machine manoeuvres.
HS2 shares our latest time-lapse edit across the world, as enabling works at Euston Station continue.
Another time-lapse construction project successfully completed for Kier, showcasing phase one of Gloucester’s city centre regeneration with a brand new bus station.
The varied scope and subject of civil engineering, infrastructural projects that take place in the city are perfectly suited for the capabilities of time-lapse capture.
We return to the subject of 3D printing to consider some recent innovations in this incredible technology, as well as how it can be rendered using time-lapse photography.
We revisit a number of epic projects in our archives to illustrate how time-lapse can be applied to provide a visual narrative of incredibly complex, heavy-duty works.
Rail-based works can be captured using time-lapse in a myriad of different ways. In this instalment of “Time-Lapse Trends”, we take a closer look at several examples of hobbyist and more professional time-lapses following this theme.
