Making timelapse is about patience and a good timing measurement skill.
It all started with a project that requires a series of night footages of Singapore’s skyline, I picked up timelapse photography. Back then, the iso performance of DSLR was not good enough to shoot decent video, hence I’ve decided to do timelapse video.
Timelapse Compilation 2012
Timelapse photography is a tiring but enjoyable process.
During the process, I was trying to shoot the time-lapse photos during blue hour so that the transition from sunset to dusk is well captured. Hence I always end up setting out to do just 1 video each day, each time-lapse took around 30 minutes to complete. There were several takes on the same angle on different nights due to bad weather.
It was like a test of patience and boredom while waiting for the timelapse to complete. But every night as I got back at the desk, checking back the images sequences brought me satisfaction, and my tiredness was chased away.
