When you watch time-lapse videos, it’s hard not to be impressed.
Videos that never get old.
This time-lapse was produced by Enrico Righetti.
In this case, the subject will change over time and he used the technique ‘’Smooth shots’’.
Let’s find out ….
How to Make a Time Lapse
FIND A RIGHT PLACE AND A RIGHT SUBJECT
Find a subject that will change over time (sunrises, sunsets, night sky, the bustle of a city street).
Time-lapse videos are a collection of individual frames and you can create a video across weeks, months or even years.
Some of the ideas are: track a pregnancy every day, take a selfie every day for a year, take a photo every day.
TWO IMPORTANT CONSIDERATION
First, how the time-lapse appear when played back? Blocky or smooth?
To get a blocky shot, you need fewer images at longer intervals between shots.
To get a smooth shot, you need more images at shorter intervals between shots.
There is no right or wrong choice.
Second, take into account f the subject is something that changes slowly over time (like take a photo each day) or changes rapidly (like a sunrise).
TAKE A PHOTO
This involves a few pieces of gear:
- Slider Modula Motion Plus
- Neutral density filter
I want to point out one thing,
The thought is that you can make it much easier to create a time-lapse video if you get outfitted with the right Slider and Camera.
