Christin Necker, is a commercial photographer, timelapse-artist and graphic designer, who studied in Hamburg and currently based in Switzerland. Her first trip to Dubrovnik brought her the LAIFFA award in LA.
Christin was looking for a new timelapse project. So she resolved on her holiday to take some shots in that nice city. Christin being impressed by the ships and the contrast between old and new town, shot 8 days and nights. Most sequence were taken from the mountain as this was giving her some amazing zoom effects.
The night scene in old town was difficult to capture. The biggest challenge was the hyperlapse shot around the tower and the street.
The contrast of daytime and nighttime in the city plays a big part in this video. The coming and goings of the boats and ships in the harbor, especially the large cruise ship at the end of the video, provides an exciting contrast between the old Croatian fishing town, and the new cosmopolitan commercial city. Some of the most beautiful sequences were taken from the mountain near the city. That allowed some really amazing zoom effects.
