We had a great timelapse workshop this weekend with Mark Thorpe. Here’s a quick video I shot of Motobu Bay. The sequence is made up of 627 frames that were shot from 7.01PM to 8.01PM The images were then processed together in LRTimelapse.
Huge thanks to Mark for teaching the class and to James and Russell for joining and learning new skills.
On the second day we worked on adding movement to out shots using equipment by Syrp. We also introduced Mark to Pizza in the Sky.
A few things I learned shooting my first day to night transition:
I had expected to use the cameras built-in intervalometer, but the Pentax K1 locks down the settings once you start the intervalometer. As you need to make adjustments to the shutter speed during the transition, I had to trigger the shutter manually counting 5 seconds between each one. An external intervalometer will solve this in the future.
Bring mosquito repellant.
Timelapses are awesome.
Motobu is awesome.
You are going to put a lot of wear and tear on the camera’s shutter.
Practice, practice, practice.
