Time Lapse is a video with the effect of speeding up time – when the clouds rush through the sky like crazy, and people are fussing funny below. To shoot such a video, you need a tripod, a camera on which automatic shooting is possible and the sky (preferably). I have had a tripod and a camera for a long time, but I reached the sky only today. While the children were sleeping, I snapped 300 frames and made my first time-lapse from them.
It turned out, of course, crooked. Especially editing and overlaying sound. But thanks for that too. I am now in terrible time pressure – I am getting ready for hike in Montenegro< /a>, and therefore even half an hour for any garbage is a luxury. But what am I justifying, see for yourself…
Finally, I’ll tell you with what settings I shot my first time-lapse:
- camera – Canon 600d
- mode – Manual (manual)
- exposure – 1/800
- aperture – f/9
- focus – MF (manual)
- white balance – day (not automatic!)
- auto-brightness – disabled
- image format – JPG, 1920*1280 pixels
- interval between frames – 5 seconds
- number of frames – 311
- shooting time – 32 minutes (the camera had time to noticeably warm up).
