Dilli Timelapse: The most awesome video you will see about Saddi Delhi
One of the biggest draw of travel is you meet some really Awesome people, and I mean Awesome with a big A. I met one such awesome guy during my Road Trip to Kumaon , Anurag Jetly was traveling with us and his aim was to spread the joys of photography. Now Anurag is one of those guys who breathe, eat, dream and talk only photography. His passion of photography is totally infectious. Anurag has been working on various projects like capturing Time Lapses in Himalayas, movie sets making of one of the major movie due for release soon. ( It will be the biggest movie of the year I think this much hint should be enough ).
But one of his most wonderful work was what I saw on his laptop a labor of love, his Timelapse of Dilli ( yes Delhi is Dilli for those who love Saddi Dilli ) . He has spent countless days in sun, rain, cold going to parts of Dilli and capturing her in camera one frame at a time. Just to give some idea to make a Timelapse of a minute you capture frames for a few hours. But this Dilli In Timelapse by Anurag was captured over months, capturing festivals, sunsets, sunrises, people, monuments shadows. He had to go after government officials to get permission and at times even give Dharna on their gate when they refused to meet him. Such was his and his teams dedication to capture Dilli in Timelapse. Watch Dilli Timelapse as it takes you through the Streets of Old Delhi, shows you grandeur of Lutyens Delhi the converges around Rashtrapati Bhavan and India Gate and captures Delhi Heritage in Mehrauli as Qutub Minar grows in frame over a day. Before I say anything further take a deep breath and watch the video that takes you to a visual delight called Dilli 🙂
The video Shot over 3 months across 50 locations in the city of Delhi. A three member crew with 4 Nikon cameras, shot 150,000 stills (roughly 9 TB of data).
Although Anurag does not need any introduction but for formalities sake here is a bit about him:
