First Time Lapse Video / by Joel Bramley


I've been playing around with time lapse and after an initial test video to see how to do one with my OMD I set out to capture the sunset. This is one frame of 175 from an 11 second video of today's sunset. 

I set the OMD EM-5 up on a gorilla pod from Joby (Hybrid Version) on top of an old fence post and used a shutter release cable with an interval of 8 seconds, metering at spot and after an initial auto focus switched to manual focus.
