Just like anything, a good time lapse depends on composition. I've been wanting to try this out so I found a parking structure and blasted away. I liked this location because it allowed me to see how cars and trains moved, along with the setting sun and clouds. This really makes you think long and hard about what you're shooting... You don't want an hour to go to waste!

Heya,

I liked it. The cars were the most interesting to me. The motion and lights as they moved with the changing ambient was interesting. The panning out motion was a nice touch.

Very best,

Nice though kind of curious why you chose to zoom out through out the shoot?

I downloaded Magic Lantern and used the intervalometer function to fire off some shots around f8. I adjusted the exposure using longer shutter speeds as the evening carried on. Used LRTimelapse 4 to adjust the exposures, it's a great tool that makes time lapses much more enjoyable to process!

The resulting time lapse footage was 4K. I'm fairly new to video editing, so I thought I'd use the extra resolution to my advantage and learn a few editing techniques.

Neat shot, but the zooming out totally distracts from observing the time lapse changes.

I liked the slow inclusion of the surrounding hood.


A photograph is worth a thousand words, but Photoshop can produce a thousand lies. Photo editing allowed. I need all the help I can get.

Good effort. I liked the pulling back. How long between shots did you take?
