"Slow Life" is a time lapse clip revealing the secret life of corals and sponges and it is meant to be viewed on large screens. These ecosystem-building representatives of marine fauna are in fact very mobile creatures whose motion is only detectable at different time scales compared to ours. Their world is absolutely captivating and hypnotizing, especially when viewed at high magnification.
Learn more about details of coral and sponge life seen in this clip in my blog post.
I made 150000 shots to create this clip. Why so many? Because macro photography involves shallow depth of field. To extend it, I used focus stacking. Each frame of the video is actually a stack that consists of 3-12 shots where in-focus areas are merged. Just the intro and last scene are regular real-time footage. One frame required about 10 minutes of processing time (raw conversion + stacking). Overall, I spend about 9 months on this project.
