I came up to this hilltop because I saw a castle from the distance, it looked …pretty cool, though I'd might like to photograph it all by itself. …I also knew it was going to give me a nice vantage point of the town and the hills …off in the distance, but when I got here I also dicovered that there's a very nice …walking path with Stairs going down this hillside. …And I thought that might make a very good time lapse. …I'm going to get set up here and try to record a time lapse of this path with …people moving about it. Now obviously you need to think about the …camera here first. I was using a slightly longer lens in …order to get some interesting shots in the countryside here. …I need a wider shot here because there's Part of the wallking path is directly …below me and I want to try to include that as a foreground element.…
So I'm going to switch to a ten to 22 millimeter lens, and that'll give me a …nice wide vantage point to the path here. And I also need to think about my setup. …I need to think about where I'm going to position myself. …
