Marakele National Park is a National Park that is part of the Waterberg Biosphere in Limpopo Province, South Africa.
We had an amazing 2 nights holiday in the bushveld at Marakele National Park last week. This was our first time there but I can defiantly see us returning to this corner of Africa soon, it was an amazing trip.
I decided to shoot a few time-lapse sequences whilst on holiday as I didn't feel like shooting video but I did have the urge to do something creative, so I thought I'd give it a try.
I used my Canon 60D, the Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 lens and a generic intervalometer I got off Amazon. I used my trusty old Manfrotto 190XDB with 701HDV Video Tripod System to keep things nice and steady.
I really enjoyed the whole experience. One thing I didn't do was plan how long I wanted the shots to last and how many frames I would need for each angle. This is why this video is so short, next time I will definitely plan it a bit better and calculate the amount of shots I need over the correct period. Found a cool iPhone app to help with that! :)
Anyways, I hope you enjoyed it and defiantly go visit this National Park if you are in South Africa, well worth a visit! I can't wait to go out and shoot some more time-lapse now - I'm hooked! :)
