In my continued efforts to learn about time-lapses, I started working on another one at this week’s Blackhawks game. I learned a few things about camera settings, but also learned it’s MUCH easier to do a time-lapse with controlled lighting.
The previous time-lapses I’ve done have all been outdoors and required a lot of time to process because of the changing light. In Wednesday night’s case, my only lighting change was the stadium lights going from “work lights” to “game lights” and back again.
My attempts at time-lapses will continue to be a work in progress, but I’m already improving over my last attempt, as my camera’s battery didn’t die in the middle of things. That’s a plus!
