I see a lot of great scenery on my travels. However, if I stopped every time I saw something cool I’d never make it on time to one of my workshops.
So before one of my road trips, I secured my digital compact camera to the car dashboard and set it to the time-lapse mode.
Later, using video editing software, I duplicated each clip on the timeline so I had two images
on the canvas. I then moved one image to the left and the other to the right. I then applied a
‘flop’ filter to the image on the right.
Your editing software might have other effects you can use to achieve this look.
They might be listed under the names: ‘mirror, ‘flip’ or ‘reflection’.
It takes a bit of experimenting when done correctly it can turn some random footage into an exciting visual montage.
