Time Lapse Tutorial – BBC Human Planet

Time Lapse Tutorial – BBC Human Planet
Tips and techniques One lump or two? Update: If you have questions about time lapse please contact me via my new Facebook page or join a photography workshop HERE. Time lapse photography can be a lovely way to spend a quiet afternoon somewhere. Before we start, it would be good to see an example of a time lapse film. (You must forgive me for adding the music – it seemed apt) OK, so it’s badly exposed and poorly composed, but it is nevertheless a time lapse film. Equipment Firstly, you need a camera. Using an ND 3.0 filter, in Spain I was able to shoot a 1 minute exposure in bright sunlight at f22 Starting out OK, now onto the practical side of things. Interval Once you’ve framed your shot with the camera firmly on your tripod, you’ve now got to decide how much interval to leave between each frame. Put simply, the shorter the interval between each frame, the more slowly the action will move in your film. There is one final thing to say about interval length. Exposure Great! Remember 1. 2. 3. 4.

The Time-lapse Photography How to Guide - Learn Time-lapse Photography | Learn Time-lapse Photography Hello and welcome to the time-lapse photography how-to guide, an evolving road-map for the evolving art of altered time perception cinematography. This page attempts to weave together separately covered tutorials, tips, and resources into one location that can hopefully act as a launching pad for your own time-lapse experiments and productions. Time discovers truth. We’ve come a long way since Occident’s hooves left the ground but time-lapse still requires patience, dedication, and some special tools and know-how in order to get the scene we design in our minds to show up on screen. Outstanding forums: Let’s go ahead and get started: Don’t worry, it’s not nearly as bad as you might think. Stability (or controlled movement) is the most essential component for a time-lapse photographer. What makes a good time-lapse camera? I have broken the external intervalometer world down into 4 segments. Neutral Density (ND) Filters You’ll end up with a shot just like everyone else’s. 1 second 1 – 3 seconds

Timelapse+, the utimate intervalometer. Bulb ramping, HDR, Light trigger and more! Miracle Film Turns Any Surface into a Touchscreen Here's one for all you lovers of futuristic interfaces. An interactive hardware company called Displax has begun marketing Skin, a paper-thin, flexible film that would transform any non-metal surface into an interactive touchscreen. You could place Skin on any surface, transparent or opaque, flat or curved, and use it to display any interactive content you like. Displax's multi-touch technology can detect up to 16 fingers at once and can also detect air movement. Skin is completely transparent and works on surfaces that are also transparent; you can place Skin on a glass surface and interact with content displayed under the glass. This unique hardware operates via a grid of nanowires embedded Skin's polymer film. We can imagine millions of cool use cases for such a technology — business presentations, medicine, museums, schools, and gaming to start. What do you think of Skin?

Release notes What are nightly builds? - Nightly builds are binaries compiled daily from the latest source code, by an automatic program - BuildBot. Who should use nightly builds? - Anyone who likes to live on the bleeding edge, wants to help ML development, and doesn't care about some features being broken. Why should I use a nightly build? - To try the latest features (e.g. you have requested a feature and it was implemented). - To check if a bug was fixed. - To help us with testing (please report any bugs you find). What are the disadvantages of nightly builds? - You are running untested code. - No documentation - the only help for new features is a small line of text, and ML source code. - No guarantees - if it breaks, you get to keep both pieces. What's new? - See the ChangeLog. - Browse the changeset log on Bitbucket. - Look for feature requests marked as "DONE". - The list of changes is huge - if you want a nice summary, you need to wait for the next stable release. Will it work on my camera?

My Painting done on Fresh Paint 7 Tips for Shooting better Timelapse A guest post by Neelima Vallangi from the Wandering Soul’s Wander Tales. Timelapse photography is one of the very interesting ways to capture motion. The results are almost always stunning. Timelapse photography is essentially shooting images of a chosen subject continuously at a specified interval and then making a movie out of it. Below you can see the timelapse video that I had shot during my recent visit to the Himalayan Desert Valley of Spiti, India. Get Rid of Auto – Everything in your camera has to remain constant as the subject changes. This video above was shot at a 3MP resolution in Manual Mode with a remote shutter release. What do you think of the timelapse that I have shot and what are your learnings so far? See more from Neelima Vallangi on her Travel and Photography blog and Flickr Page.

RAW workflow for timelapse Originally posted on KesslerU Tom Baurain has done this excellent video tutorial on RAW workflow for timelapses. I use a mix of RAW and JPEGS dependent on the project. Eric Kessler and I worked with Tom to get this tutorial done and it’s excellent for those looking to up their game and take the next step! It’s pretty solid information, I don’t do the same as Tom on everything especially when it comes to shutter speeds. Why shoot timelapse using raw instead of jpgs? The larger files not only hold more color information, but the size of these images allows you the ability crop out what you don’t want or pan and scan without compromising quality. The very nature of the raw file allows you to tweak the image in such a way that allows you to achieve the look you want without baking that look into the file itself. Taking advantage of the Raw format isn’t without peril, but the Red Owl breaks it all down with this Raw workflow. Here’s just some of what you’ll learn in this video: General Learning

Pentax K-5 Time Lapse Guide « Bob-O-Rama Overview The Pentax K-5 is an extremely competent camera, and offers an APS-C sensor with best of class low light performance. As is typical with Pentax, there are many in-camera processing and shooting features which can be used in combination, maximizing the flexibility of the K-5. The K-5 includes 3 axis image stabilization, in camera HDR, flexible bracketing, in camera LCA and geometric distortion correction when used with Pentax lenses. It makes an excellent instrument for time lapse work for a number of reasons, but it also presents some difficulties which can make it somewhat more difficult as well. The aim of this guide is to cover these features broadly and how these fit into the usual aspects of time lapse. Timing – Free Running The K-5 offers a Lo speed continuous shooting drive mode which will actuate the shutter at a rate of about 1 – 2 frames / second. You don’t want to sit there holding the shutter button for 4 hours. Limitations of Continuous Shooting Special Drive Modes
