Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Finding a time-lapse subject, part of Time-Lapse Photography Workshop.
As photographers, we tend to always to be on the look out for a good photographic subjects. …And that habit will most certainly serve you well when it comes to time-lapse photography. …But time-lapse photography is actually a little bit unique. …You do want a subject that is good photogenically. …In other words, a time-lapse scene that would look good as a still photograph. …But you also need to think about the element of time, since we're capturing …images over a period of time. And then compressing those into a final …time-lapse video. Sometimes, great time-lapse subjects …won't be entirely obvious. For example, I'm standing before a …beautiful mountain scene. I've got the sun casting shadows across …the face of the mountain and some really nice clouds developing above the mountains.…
When you stand here looking at the scene, it doesn't' seem like anything's moving. …But of course over a period of time, those clouds will develop and possibly dissipate. …The shadows will continue to move across the face of the mountain. …
