This year I decided I wanted to venture out and try some different sorts of photography and something that really captured my attention was the idea of forms of motion photography. I haven’t discovered yet all the things that might fully entail but I have already started working on some ideas for different projects including:
- forms of time-lapse
- astrophotography and star trails
- long exposure photography
- high speed photography
So I hope this year to share with you at least one of my experiments each month.
The first project I decided on was a time-lapse – that is capturing hundreds of photos over an extended period of time and compiling them together into a movie clip. After looking into making one I was surprised how easy (relatively speaking) it was to start out. I was also pleasantly surprised that the only additional thing I needed other than a camera and a tripod was a free app on my mobile called TriggerTrap and a cable. After going through a couple of candles and getting the timing right I managed to get something that worked.
