A much needed update has come to the Ryan Dravitz Photography website. You can now buy prints right from home! The majority of photos on this website are available for purchase and it's as easy as clicking 'Buy Print' at the bottom of a photo, like on this one below!
Back in April, Ken Schroeppel and I went around central Denver creating a time-lapse video for the global One Day on Earth media campaign. On April 26, we had a 24-hour window to film around Denver to answer a specific question about our city. Totaling 4,842 photos, our time-lapse video attempts to answer the question: How do pedestrians interact with their city?
Saturday, April 26, 2014 was a typical Saturday in the Mile High City, and there were no major sporting events or conventions in town. As expected, the chilly morning didn’t bring many people out at first but, as the day warmed up, the amount of pedestrian activity increased considerably all over the city.
Shooting commenced at 5:06 AM to catch the sunrise, and ended at 7:55 PM when my last camera battery, out of seven, died as the skies darkened. Ken accompanied me for the entire shoot, helping carry equipment and transporting us to every location. This project would not have been nearly as amazing without Ken’s help, knowledge, and creative ideas. Thank you, Ken!
Once we shot the beautiful sunrise, we visited an additional 15 sites. We had the process down to a science: get to the site, setup, shoot 250 photos at 4-second intervals, take down, and move on. There was no looking back and no retakes.
Without further ado, we would like to present One Day on Earth – One Day in Denver!
The consumer ability take aerial photos is getting easier by the day. Recently, I took the plunge and bought a quadcopter with a GoPro. Needless to say, the results are outstanding. Being able to take aerials with ease will also be a great tool for surveying sites and getting a new perspective from the sky! I am still working on building the album on this site so in the meantime, visit the updated set on my Flickr page. Here are some samples:
If you get up high enough in Cherry Creek, you are greeted with some great views! Because of all the construction in the neighborhood, expect tower cranes in many of your views which is never a bad thing.
