I shot this timelapse sequence mostly over the last few months in the Central North Island of New Zealand. This in an attempt to capture the essence of the often unpredictable New Zealand weather. The weather around here seems to have a mind of it's own as storm fronts race across the land and of the countless occasions I would watch and then chase the light to try and capture the type of landscapes I was after I would so often be beaten into submission with the best moments slipping by as I frantically set up my gear.
Shot on Canon 5D Mark II, motion control achieved with Dynamic Perception Stage Zero dolly.

Flowers Timelapse compilation (Amaryllis, Lilies, Easter cactus, Rose, Gladiolus, Tulip, Gardenia)
I took more than 7100 photos in more than 730 hours (using Canon 5D Mark II)
It is my first timelapse, hope you'll enjoy it :)
The music is called Arrival of the Birds by The Cinematic Orchestra... amazing music, my favorite..
Adding more details according to questions I've been recieving:
It was shot in a homemade "studio" that I made in a cabinet. I covered the back of the cabinet with black cloth, the flower was placed in the middle, and the whole cabinet was then covered with another cloth to insulate from the daylight (to keep the light constant, which is the most important). Two led lamps were used to illuminate the flowers.
Some flowers bloomed in hours, some in few days.. therefore the interval between photos varies from few seconds to several minutes depending on the type of flower.. after several missed tries you'll learn ;)
In order to keep ISO as low as possible (couldn't go lower than 640 because of low light), the shutter speed was usually 1/5 s at f16.
All flowers are mine or from my mother's garden :)

TARDOR -només per als teus ulls-
Temps nostàlgic però ple de colors, de colors càlids i potser irreals.
Unes imatges perfectes que desapareixen en pocs dies.

OTOÑO -solo para tus ojos-
Tiempo nostálgico pero lleno de colores, de colores cálidos y quizás irreales.

AUTUMN -only for your eyes-
Time nostalgic but full of colors, warm colors and perhaps unrealistic.
