How To Create a Time Lapse Video- Part 1

…I enjoy making time-lapse videos. It’s nice to see the things in life that seem to take a long time magically happen before your eyes…

Long Shutter Speeds = Light Trails

Long Shutter Speeds = Light Trails

Long exposures are a great way to play with light trails, and “paint” with light. By letting your shutter stay open for a longer period of time, you can use any light emitting device to creatively ad light to your scene. Remember this technique works only if the camera is on a tripod, and some sort of cable release or timer is used to eliminate camera shake.

The blue lines in the photos bellow are made by a small light up Frisbee. Glow sticks and flashing lights on strings create beautiful multi-colored designs. Flashes set off randomly in a field can create the illusion of ghosts (no photoshop was used, its all on one frame in the camera)

Another way of using light creatively is by having the shutter stay open for a longer duration, and moving the CAMERA around instead of the lights, as the photos of the Christmas trees show.

Get creative, Set the camera to 30 seconds, or bulb if you can, and let the lights create the show you hope for. Remember, tripods are your friend.

Timelapse – Camping

Timelapse – Camping

My newest time-lapse was taken this past weekend while camping behind the Hudson River Rafting Company in North Creek, New York. I traveled up Saturday evening to do some light camping in preparation for an early day of riding the Hudson’s white water on Sunday. I used a Canon 40D with dual battery grip and and 11-18mm Tamron lens to capture the frames for the time-lapse. The exposures were spaced 45 seconds apart, using the Canon TC-80N3 remote set on aperture priority for approximately 11 hours. Unfortunately a storm came and splashed some water drops on the lens, but you cannot control nature. Luckily the camera was covered my a waterproof housing.
