Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Details and noise, part of Time-Lapse Video: Shooting From a Window.
…Some of the best time lapses you're going to…get out of hotel windows are going to be…at night when the city comes to life…and this is where you're really seeing cool things.…Of course, this could lead to lots of noise in the image, depending upon…the size of your sensor and other factors about how it handles lower light.…Fortunately though, post production makes this pretty easy to clean up.…You've already seen a little bit with noise reduction, let's tackle an image…that's particularly noisy and I'll show you how to clean up the raw files.…Here's another preview movie.…
In this case, I left the exposure open for a long time.…The night time sky was very dark, there…wasn't a lot of light sources in this scene.…We were near the edge of the ocean and while there were a few…hotels, it was mostly an industrial area that was shut down for the night.…I really wanted the clouds in the sky to come through, but as such, because of the…longer exposure and the smaller sensor of the…Micro Four Thirds camera, I definitely got some noise.…
