I am working on an idea for time lapses - I call them 'fashion lapses'.The idea really is just to create a scene with two 'speeds' the background and the subject. This is still very much work in progress but I thought I would share the concept.
My first attempts were flawed mainly due to flicker. I was using my lens in manual mode but there was a flicker caused by tiny variances in aperture. On this occasion I used an old fully manual lens which meant I could select the aperture I needed and the dreaded flicker was eliminated. I still have a long way to go but I am getting closer to the results that I want. What is painfully clear is that you are so reliant on the weather conditions - this process is going to take a lot of patience and early mornings!
My model today was the lovely Shannon and she did pretty well at standing still - we even managed to find some time to take a few nice pictures of her. If you fancy yourself as a Fashion Lapse victim model please get in touch.
