One Night in Vegas: A time-lapse journey

LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) - Living in Las Vegas can spoil a local. Gone is the glitz and glamour of the Las Vegas Strip. Gone is the allure of the crowds and the diversity of the tourists who come and go.

While the sparkle may be gone for some, it's still alive and well for a team of three Los Angeles based photographers. Together, Aaron Keigher, Michel Bloom and Arlene Ziordia created a spectacular look at Las Vegas through a nearly 4 minute time-lapse journey.

It begins with their dusty drive through the desert down the I-15 route so many are familiar with and ends with a spectacular light show in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.

"Ya know, time-lapse, a lot of times, take months or years to put together and I kinda wanted to challenge myself to see if I could pull it off in one night. Something that's really not been done before," said Aaron Keigher, a photographer and time-lapse professional.

Keigher called up a few of his colleagues and decided that Las Vegas was the perfect city to try his experiment because the city literally never sleeps.

"I think my favorite part was really just being able to capture the action that goes on in the city, the energy. Time-Lapse is all about motion, all about things moving, moving in fast speed. Vegas is already moving in fast speed," said Keigher.

As for the technique, Keigher says it's all about getting the frames exactly right, and not having anyone bump into the tripod during the shoot. He says teamwork helped get the shoot done in one night.

"By splitting it up and dividing it up and each shooting different stuff, we were able to accomplish a lot and that really was the challenge," he said.
