Auckland – A Tranquil City

SHOT BYSiyamalan



“A tranquil city” is a compilation of thousands of images that I shot around Auckland from May to September last year. I tried to set most of the sequences during the golden hour to utilise the fading natural light for maximum dynamic range.

Most memorable experience in making this short movie was shooting Auckland fog. I wasn’t lucky at the beginning. Whenever I see a fog forecast, I would set an early morning alarm to check if the forecast is still the same. After several visits, I finally managed to find the right moment :)

Shot mostly with X-T1 and couple of sequences with A7s
