Final Project Research - Time Lapse Photography

Darcie Naylor

A few weeks ago when Anne mentioned that our final project could be anything we wanted, I got very excited because I have been interested in doing a time lapse for quite a while. When she mentioned that if we wanted, she could give us a theme of Time Space, I felt that my original thought of a time lapse would work perfectly with either my own choice or the theme she gave us.

I also remembered this photograph in a batch of other photographs we were looking at a few weeks back. I immediately loved this image. I had never really thought of time lapse as being one single image. All the time lapse I have ever seen have been turned into short movies. So I began to research time lapse photography.

There is a lot of information out there about this subject and many, many time lapses on U Tube. The following web page "The Ultimate Guide to Time-Lapse Photography" gives some very basic, easy to read and understand time lapse how to information. I especially like how they gave you the basic steps, 1 to 6 and then expounded on the steps below. I feel like even a novice photographer like myself could understand this.


Another web tutorial I found is the one I've posted the URL to below. It's got a beautiful compilation of different time lapses and the music that goes with it is amazing. Even though I have a good idea of what I want to do my time lapse on, it was great to see the list of ideas on the site. Great ideas for future projects!
