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 :)
edit 20 Jan 2013: I made a page with even more info and photos:
In 2009 rAndom International was commissioned by the Philips Lumiblade team to create an interactive light installation. You Fade To Light captures the unique qualities inherent to their revolutionary new OLEDs.
Lumiblade OLEDs are large area diffuse light sources made from extremely thin glass and feature a perfect mirror finish. OLEDs are the closest to the temperature of natural light.
"You Fade To Light" by rAndom International allows the audience to engage with the light itself intuitively and in a physical way. With custom software developed by designer Chris O'Shea, it has been built in London with several hundred unique OLEDs from the world’s first-ever production line for OLED lighting at Philips in Aachen, Germany.
A total of 8 unique You Fade To Light installations is available for commission from October 2009. For more information please contact email@example.com
