Article Review #8 by Cong

http://timothyallen.blogs.bbcearth.com/2009/02/24/time-lapse-photography/

This article is a tutorial of time lapse photography. The author is BBC photographer Timothy Allen. He writes in the article, “Time lapse photography can be a lovely way to spend a quiet afternoon somewhere. Whilst others might go fishing, I prefer settling down with a flask of tea and my tripod, giving myself the time to really appreciate the environment I find myself in.”
The tutorial goes very in-depth about time lapse photography techniques, ranging from picking the right equipment to setting exposure. And some key tips are given by the author:
1. Manual settings on your camera
2. Set your ISO to its lowest if shooting in daylight
3. Solid tripod = no camera movement
4. Longer shutter speed = more realistic movement (up to a point)
5. Set your interval according to how fast you want the action to move
6. Check that your memory card has sufficient free space for your images
7. Make sure you have enough battery power to last the duration of shooting.
Once you have shot sufficient time lapse frames you want, you can edit them together as a short film.
