I am a student and really low on cash, so I made this timelapse video on a budget with my good old 7D attached with a remote, my 10-year old 17-40L and a Gorillapod.
The Danish landscape is very flat, but flat doesn’t mean boring. The skies are beautiful and at certain seasons very colorful. Streams and creeks are trickling through valleys, ocean waves beat against the shoreline, and it’s even possible to find a few remote places, where seeing other humans are uncommon.
I started shooting timelapse in 2012 and since then, my techniques have progressively developed. I’ve made lots of errors, lots of photos have been thrown in the trash, and lots of hikes, biking and driving have been in vain cause of deteriorating weather. I’ve fought against dew on the front of my lens, and sometimes even struggled against the early morning light in the absence of time. But I got up when I fell, and I became a better photographer – slowly, but surely.
I’m very pleased with the final result of my video, and for me, these timelapses will work as a memory of a great, but hard, learning process. Some of the sequences are HDR-photos of three exposures merged together with dedicated software and later edited in After Effects and Adobe Premiere.
All the photos in this video were shot between May 2013 and January 2014.
