Time Lapse Photography

Traffic Time Lapse:

Footage was taken as part of a crew, the location was scouted and footage shot by Kara Billington, Michael L. Huffstuter II, and Blake Simonson.  The original idea for this footage was to catch the sunset shadows playing on the walls of the steam powered electrical plant across the street, but the weather did not permit and we changed gears, deciding to shoot the traffic instead.

Time lapse was taken between 6:30pm and 7:00pm on August 29th, 2016.

Candle Time Lapse:

I found this candle powered bell toy intriguing and instantly wanted to time lapse the candles burning.  The initial time lapse I did with this toy did not work as I did not set the shutter to a long enough time and the lack of motion blur created a jumpy and strange motion to the cherubs on the device.  Once I decreased the shutter speed, the time lapse became quite interesting.

Time lapse was taken between 9:26pm and 10:26pm on September 2nd, 2016.

Clouds Time Lapse:

Clouds time lapse test. The platform for the camera was not stable enough against the wind, because of this the footage is not as smooth as I would have liked. Also, the shutter was much too fast, but with the lens I was using, there was no way to clamp down the aperture any further to allow for a slower shutter speed and the ISO was already set to a minimum, I decided that the flicker I would experience was preferable to a blown-out shot in this case and in the end, I’m fairly happy with the overall product.

Time lapse was taken between 2:09pm and 2:39pm on September 2nd, 2016.
