The Air Traffic 2 – Timelapse Film

Ever wondered what it’s like in one of the busiest airports in the world? With a flight landing and taking off almost every minute during peak hours, it can get pretty insane.

Shoot a timelapse of that, and you get transported to a sci-fi world with shooting stars breaking into the atmosphere.

I shot this shot mostly in the restricted runway area of Singapore’s Changi Airport and the surrounding public areas for some scenes. I was so close to the planes that my cameras literally got shaken by the rumbles from the jet engines – Which actually produced a pretty neat effect. (See 2:12)

Runway Photo Experiment With Prabal Gurung Fall 2014 at AFF

The vibe of the show and shooting conditions presented itself perfectly for what I had in mind. And I’ve always wanted to try this for some time now.

Prabal Gurung’s showcase of his Fall 2014 collection at Audi Fashion Festival 2014 was when I carried out this runway photo experiment.

Straight-on vertical runway photos get boring. So I’ve been experimenting and figuring out new ways to make fashion runway photos look more captivating. Know how as content producers we always want to squeeze in as much “story”  into a single image as possible?

The idea of double/multiple exposures came to mind to fit more in less. It was inspired by a photo I saw on vogue.com some time back that also had a double exposure type of look. I’d say I’m really happy with the way the photos turned out!
