At last, I finished writing some papers and got some time again. But I didn’t want to spend it right back at the computer (okay to be honest I did, but not completely ;)) and so I tought: Hmm, reviving one of my old hobbies sounds like a good idea: Timelapse photography. Since we all need to evolve I wanted to add something new and decided to do a hyperlapse. As a target, I choose the Thyssen-Krupp-Quartier located in Essen, Germany. It’s the “new” headquarter of a huge steel manufacturing company constructed a few years ago and looks pretty nice.
Here are the variables of the painstaking 100 min process of capturing the images:
Camera: Samsung NX300
Lens: 18-50mm 3.5-5.6
Total images: 400
Interval between images: 15 seconds
Distance between images: 35cm
Focal length: 18mm
Shutter delay: 2.5 seconds
Aperture: automatic (varied between 7.1 and 10)
White balance: automatic
Filter: ND8x + ND64x
If you watch the video carefully, you will see that I fucked up two frames, where I momentarily lost focus and moved the camera before the shutter closed, damn it!!!
Still I hope you like it, because I’m definitely going to do more.
