Video: Dumbo and NYC in Miniature

The Sandpit from Sam O'Hare on Vimeo.

Here’s an amazing video titled The Sandpit by Sam O’Hare includes video of Dumbo using techniques similar to time-lapse tilt shift photography. We previously posted a few tilt shift photos of Dumbo. Some shots were of Brooklyn Bridge Park, a view of the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge Park (From One Brooklyn Bridge Park building), and Pearl Street Triangle (from the Manhattan Bridge), Plymouth Street, and York/Jay Street.

How did Sam do it? He used a Nikon D3 (with Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 and Sigma 50-150mm f/2.8 lenses) and a series of still photos that totalled over 35,000 photos when put together into the video. Read more about it in detail here. This is amazing Sam!
