London Lights

A short time-lapse film of London at night. This film was shot from November 2011 to February 2012 . As the nights drew longer and winter settled in, it provided me with the ideal opportunity to get out and shoot London at night.

I’ll be honest, I’m not really a city person! but there is something quite beautiful about the city at night. As I commute to London for work, I took the time to shoot this film on my walk back to the train station and over a period of 4 months I slowly collected footage.

I wanted to try and get away from the cliches of London like Big Ben and Tower Bridge and focus more on the modern architecture. The city is ever changing as new buildings are constantly appearing. In a few years time I could go back and shoot a completely new film based on the new builds! but I suppose that’s a good thing. The music for this film was composed in Logic Express.

Equipment used:
Canon 5D MKii
Canon 17-40mm f/4
Canon 24mm f/1.4
eMotimo PT
