- (Interval shooting for stills)
Don’t forget that your time-lapses should have interesting subjects. Besides sunrises and night photography, here are a few other interesting subjects to get your imagination moving.
This 1hr time-lapse started in near black at 6:20 and ended at 7:20am.
The first exposure was 13sec* and the last exposure was at 1/500.
*In the big 1080p version, you can see stars at the beginning.
Fuji cameras (like many cameras) have special modes. I particularly like Miniature mode. Combined with interval shooting and you get this.
(I haven’t figured out why it seems to jump every once in a while (not regularly). The camera was in manual focus.)
Girls Scouts building a exhibit out of cookie boxes was very interesting. Sorry that I can’t share it due to privacy concerns, but that’s just motivation for you to shoot your own!
