2018 Time-lapse Recap by Dennis Bernhard

2018 was a great year. I got to travel across the country and around the world. Here’s my best shots smooshed together into one day.

Thank you to everyone who watched my videos this year. This will be the last video for 2018. I’m off to Tokyo and India. Be on the look out for more videos in the new year.

Shanghai Time-lapse by Dennis Bernhard

Shanghai is an amazing city. It’s full of lights, sounds and movement. I thought it would be perfect as a time-lapse subject.

This time-lapse was shot over two days during my trip to Shanghai. Unfortunately my third day of shooting was rained out. Nevertheless I had a great time running around this incredible city trying to capture a fraction of all there is to see.

The Oriental Pearl is a beautiful building all of the time but especially at night. The lights add a spaceship like feel like to the needle like building.

There is a very cool Shanghai history museum in the bottom of this building as well.

Another of my favorite spots in Shanghai was Yu Garden. This is an ancient garden in the middle of Shanghai. It’s incredible how you can go from the hustle and bustle of one of the most populated cities on the planet, into one of the most serene and peaceful areas I’ve ever been to (minus all the tourists).

The French Concession by Dennis Bernhard

Shanghai has a very interesting history of semi-colonization. As part of that there is an area called the French Concession. As the name sounds, it is an area of Shanghai that was run by the french starting in the late 1800s.

This was my second favorite part of Shanghai. It’s has a completely different look to it. The tree lined streets really make you feel like you are walking through Paris.

The Bund, Shanghai, China by Dennis Bernhard

I recently went to Shanghai, China for a quick trip. This next set of photos is from that trip, leading up to a time-lapse on Friday.

This is my favorite photo from the trip. Even though it was foggy and you can’t see the other buildings (one being the second tallest building on earth), you still get a great view of the Oriental Pearl tower.

I took this photo from the Bund, which is a very cool part of Shanghai that has a bunch of old colonial style buildings and incredibly fancy shopping. Of the many cool areas of Shanghai I visited, this was my favorite. The view of these buildings, especially lit up at night, is crazy beautiful.
