Richard Bentley’s new work will make you feel.. deceived


‘[DE]ception’ is Richard Bentley’s new work shot using a Canon 5D Mark III at “unknown” locations. Ready to feel deceived?

From the video description, we understand why he chose this technique for his new time-lapse:

For some time now, I have been uploading still images to Instagram. More often than not, I have been rotating, merging and using apps like ‘layout’ to modify the images to enable me to get more than the 640×640 square image to be seen.
Applying that same technique to my timelapse footage was the next natural progression. Many people have commented that they were deceived (in a good way), by the way I had modified my still images, hence the title here ‘[DE]ception’; based also on the film ‘Inception’ and its amazing imagery.


Not the first time we have the pleasure to feature Richard Bentley’s timelapse videos. Don’t miss the last one!
