“First Time Time-lapsing” says the author ! Hard to believe !!
Author : twflanker
Time-lapse : 49:27:00 -> 00:00:53 (fasten 3358x)
Camera : Canon EOS 40D
My point of view for the job done on this video : Amazing Ending
First of all, congratulation to Twflanker who said it was his first time lapse on a flower and, with a modesty I appreciate, says “still much to improve”. I think it is a great global performance and we will have to look thoroughly to get those little things “to improve”.
Watering the plant during the time lapse
To be honest, I got disturbed by this water appearing and disappearing because it happens so fast but still the mind focus on it. It is like a break during the movie. Maybe the plant is not growing fastly enough during “water hours” and frames could be discarded. Detail !
A couple of black frame
You can see between 00:17 and 00:18 a black flash. It could be the realisator walking by to water the dianthus or a temporary power failure. Again detail !
Two distincts part in the movie…
The action really starts after 26s which is the half of the movie. It can be long, especially without music and I really do hope people did not leave the scene before…
Before the Show! The 10 seconds are really great, above all the zoom in the middle with the little dancers!
A bit frustrated the flower wide open too fast and the film is less “animated”.
On that remark, I open the debate :
– Are we breaking the deontology of “time-lapsers” by changing the frequency of frames in the middle ?! That would false the speed ratio but on the blooming it could bring a lot…
