LIL Galleries: Opening & Photowalk

A few weeks ago +Karen Hutton came out to Portland for the opening of LIL Galleries ( There was a good turnout, and it fell on the "First Friday" at the building so a bunch of people were there checking out other local businesses and artists. The actual "gallery" is in the janitor's closet (seriously) but looks beautiful and was flanked by dozens of gorgeous prints from the artists (listed below) hanging on the walls.

There was definitely some amazing talent at this event and it was a very unique and beautiful viewing experience. To watch the videos shown in the gallery featuring work from +Karen Hutton, +Brian Matiash, +Jaime Ibarra and +Ricardo Lagos, check out the LIL Galleries YouTube channel:

For the video: I was inspired by +Petra Cross's stop-motion technique so I decided to create one of my own which spanned over two days, showing the gallery opening and the photowalk in PDX. It was really fun to create (I used my Fuji x100), and since I'm already familiar with creating timelapse movies this was just a variation of that process. So much fun ... thanks for the inspiration, Petra!

BTW, I love how the random thumbnail picked a photo of me and Brian! :)

Music in the video is CC licensed from +Josh Woodward ... love his music! Check him out :)

What a fantastic video! I can't imagine a better and more sentimental way to encapsulate what took place across those two events. Thanks for taking the time to do this for all of us, +Nicole S. Young!
Good to see you guys again. :-)))
Very well done :) it is fun to see everything that happened, I would have liked to have attended to support some of my favorite people / artists.
Nicole, this is simply amazing! You are Amazing!
Oh +Nicole S. Young... I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes. This is  SO FREAKING INCREDIBLE!!! What a amazing amount of work, love, thought and brilliance you've put into this. I love it more than I can ever say. THANK YOU for doing it, for honoring us... and expanding your own world in the process. That's the entire spirit of LIL GALLERIES, right there. You need to do more of these!!! xoxoxox
Love it!  Thanks for sharing.
This is so awesome and perfect! Love it!

Say, what software do you use to create the timelapse? 
wow! -- +Nicole S. Young .. i feel like i just revisited the whole weekend, and it brought back all the good feelings that i had that weekend. through the show, and all the fun things we did together.

this was just excellent.. i love it, and thank you! .. this really inspires me.
Oh, thank you Nicole, I will watch the tutorial. I have a copy of CS6 which is in the "queue" for me to learn. At the moment I'm learning Lightroom 4. I just started learning all these desktop tools having come from the mobile photography world. It is a ball to be honest, I love software. (Yes. Yes, I am a total geek.)
Fantastic stop motion. So well done. You captured a lot of great moments. Wish I could have been there!
Finally had time to sit and watch after Brian mentioned it in a hangout! Absolutely outstanding - so much fun to watch. Great work!
Great clip! Nicole, thank to +Trey Ratcliff. He was the original inspiration. I'm just part of the snowball that seems to be getting bigger every day.
