The Victoria Amazonica - How to Timelapse a Water Lily

Apart from the odd sunrise or sunset, I normally only get one shot at capturing each timelapse I undertake whilst shooting on location.  Unlike traditional filming, there's no 'cut' and start over from the director - there's often no director with me so I'm left to my own devices to get the shot in the can.  This task however, was a bit more of a rare occurance.  We're not talking solar eclipse rare; more of a couple of month's wait and by that time, I would have missed the transmission date anyway!

In late 2015 I was given the opportunity to capture seasonal change of Grow Wild's four flagship sites dotted around Great Britain covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.  The idea was to start filming in April 2016 and re-visit each site to capture the change in growth over a couple of seasons or so.

In this post, I'll be looking at how you can make mistakes to improve your technique.

How to timelapse an event: The Photography Show 2015

Event Photography is demanding, hectic and often riddled with changes of plan - the 'live' tv version of shoots. Throw into the mix the addition of timelapse and you've got a whirlwind of chaos.  The key to success here is control and that comes with planning.

How to Timelapse a plane being painted

I know.  It's fast approaching mid-February and I've not made a blog post for nearly two months now.   Ironically, I haven't had the time, even though most of my colleagues in the industry imagine that I spend all day listening to my camera click at varying intervals and spend said time sleeping, reading, watching films or generally just being lazy.   In my busiest January on record since I started Chadchud back in 2010, I've been somewhat absorbed and preoccupied with looking after 12 shoots and around 28 cameras.  Anyway - here's one of those weeks...
