Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video The capture workflow, part of Shooting a Time-Lapse Movie from a Window.
…It's about time to capture.…Now, there's a couple of things to think about before you do this for real.…First off, remove all of the distracting light from the scene.…So when I get ready to go, all of these video lights are going to get shut off.…And I'm going to do a couple of extra things like close the curtains…here so there's no light pollution coming from the back side of the room.…Now sometimes be careful, some of these curtains are highly reflective.…And they have a resurface on the backside designed to bounce the sunlight out.…So they can actually add more problems.…
You might put something over the camera to cut down on reflections.…Or use that lens skirt we talked about.…But make sure you minimize the amount of light getting in that's unwanted.…Also, check that the camera is properly facing out.…Sometimes these windows are double plated glass, so if you're shooting at an angle…you can get some weird repeated images where things look a little bit ghosted.…Essentially, you're getting some refraction.…
