Sean Goebel created the beautiful time lapse video piece called Epochs, created over the course of a year in various locations at various times of day and night. And while the result is phenomenal, the lesson is even better: because Goebel used largely borrowed professional gear and homemade motion tracking equipment, he proves that inspiration and creativity trump budget almost every time. And the great blog DIY Photography has redeemed themselves (remember the iPhone ringlight? Oh my!) with a great behind the scenes story full of useful information about how Goebel made his triumphant Epochs video. If you’re interested in making your own time lapses, it’s a must-read.
