I came up with the idea of shooting time lapse of famous clocks around New York City at the same time over several days. It ended up being a little trickier than I had originally planned due to uncooperative weather, scheduling and clocks.
Shot using a Canon 7d with Canon lenses
18-55mm f3.5-5.6 USM
50mm f1.4 USM
75-300mm f4-5.6 III USM
5 second intervals with a mixture of 1 and 2 second exposures. I had a bit of a problem with flicker on certain shots which inspired me to purchase a Little Bramper which I wish I had for this.
Locations in order of appearance:
Colgate Clock - Jersey City
Hilton Hotel Times Square
Grand Central Terminal
Metronome Clock Union Square (was 50 mins off)
The Sherry Netherland
Assembled in Quicktime Pro edited in FCP.
Soundtrack: mix of natural sound and royalty free sound effects
