Long Meg (time-lapse)

Originally uploaded by markrbbc

Shot this in April 2008, at Long Meg stone circle. The weather wasn’t that great, but it does show the cloud movement really well.

Shot with a Canon 30D mounted on a motion-controlled head for the panning movement.

This took 775 individual exposures, comped together in After Effects and Premiere.
The audio track came from Flashkit.com (great place for free and shareware loops and sfx).

You’ll note that it’s “very purple”; this is an effect of the Cokin ND filters used to make the shutter drag. It seems that stacking three filters causes a shift in either the IR or UV (not sure which) hiting the camera’s sensor. (used two ND filters plus an ND Grad on this film).
