Time Lapse I

View On Black


Part 1 of a new series on day time long exposures called Time Lapse

Time-lapse is a cinematography technique whereby each film frame is captured at a rate much slower than it will be played back.

Although this photo has nothing to do with cinematography the idea behind this has some similarities, and I just thought it was a nice title for a new series.


In this new series the emphasis will be more on architectural shots and combining this with long exposures. Usually I would take a shot like this from a different angle, very often standing much closer to the architectural object that I want to capture to create a dramatic and dynamic feel.

But when I saw the cloud formation I decided to step back a few metres. Although I didn't know beforehand what the actual result would be, I was quite pleased with the final result.
