Tweed site to feature in time-lapse video project

AN ARTIST of time-lapse photography will make his way to the Tweed as part of an Australian wide project.

In roughly three weeks Eddie Hobson will spend a few days capturing the rich images the Tweed has to offer.

Time-lapse photography is an art where images are taken of one area constantly for a certain amount of time.

The images are then turned into a video; some people compare the method to flip books.

Mr Hobson said he embarked on his personal project to show what a vast amount of beauty Australia had to offer.

"The project aims to give an accurate representation of Australia," he said.

"I want to represent each state, from their cities, coastlines to their national parks."

He will visit every state and territory in the country.

For his New South Wales side of the project he will showcase 30 towns of interest from the coast right inland.

"The idea for this project came in to my mind about 9 months ago," he said.

"There has been a fantastic response."

When he hits the Tweed he will be capturing the beautiful coast line and national parks.

"I also want to see the inactive volcano landscape," he said.

For every location Mr Hobson's shooting times are different.

He said at some scenes he will take one photo every second, at others, depending on movement, he can take one every 5 to 10 minutes.

He carries two DSLR cameras with him at all times, a "few" Go Pro video cameras, a 6ft dolly track as well as a large tripod.

"I can take between 4000 to 5000 photos on a project like this per day," he said.

"The entire project will be at least half a million photos."

His single New York City time-lapse featured a massive 80,000 to 100,000 photos for the one project.

Mr Hobson's love for time-lapse photography drove him to complete the self-funded project.

"I fell in love with the medium," he said.

"It makes a busy city peaceful and surreal.

If you spot "the man with a backpack that is bigger than himself" make sure to go say hello.

Mr Hobson loves talking to locals and finding the secret treasures the area has to offer, if you have any tips for him about great places to photograph in the Tweed contact him through
