So I decided: I don’t keep them anymore! I no longer wait for the time when I will be gathering and other time lapses that, together with the ones that exist, will allow the birth of more meaningful films.
Any time lapse itself is a nice sequence – if you are lucky enough to catch good times, if you have the right equipment and if you have the experience to do the right thing. So it must be seen, even if it only lasts a few seconds. From now on I throw them on the net!
The sequences were created in the spring of 2015 in Izvor Park. I hung up the moment when the trees bloomed – a moment that lasts a week at most – and I went with two rooms in one afternoon.
Spring is also the season when you catch the most fluffy and beautiful clouds. Or you have the chance to find them more often than in other seasons.
But unfortunately most spring days are windy, which automatically means movements of branches, flowers, leaves, unpleasant thing for a timelapse. The only solution to diminish this somewhat unpleasant effect is to force long exposures = no filters. For the final sequences with the Palace of Parliament I used a sandwich made of an ND filter over which I overlaid another hard grade ND.
For the first two frames I used only one simple ND filter.
Cameras used: Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 6D.
Lenses: Carl Zeiss Distagon T * 2 / 25mm, Canon EF 16-35mm f / 2.8L II.
Ah, and the Parcfilm watermark, although it is for the first time when I put on a non-commercial film made by me, is only to discourage the download of the material and its reuse. It’s a jungle. It’s good to be cautious. Common sense has oscillating dimensions in the world we live in.
