I’ve wanted to do time-lapses of Hong Kong for a while now and we’ve finally got round to it!
Our camera has a time-lapse feature; however it only works on the manual mode…which I don’t know how to use. Jeff has tried to explain aperture and other stuff but I don’t really get it.
So we worked as a team: I suggested locations, found the shooting angle and set-up the time-lapse while Jeff did the manual settings.
The result was ok by night, but day light and a cloudy sky revealed our lack of knowledge.
We learnt quite a few things with our first trials, mainly that it’s not as easy as it seems.
I really enjoy doing time-lapses and scouting for locations, it’s also a great opportunity to (finally) learn the basics of photography.
Here are our first videos, please be forgiving because we have no idea what we are doing!
