An Abstract Time-lapse Experiment
I am currently on a boat… a platform that is wobbly and moving.
So of course one of the first ideas I have is trying to shoot time-lapse. (I hope you see the foolishness of my ways).
Of course I am stubborn, and I am actually finding that a little stabilization can fix the motion.
Last night I wanted to try an unlikely time-lapse. Here is the result.
Exposure 10 seconds
Shot Raw at ƒ4.0 and ISO 1600
50mm lens pointed at the skyline of the ocean. 4 AM coming into land.
Import into After Effects as a Camera Raw image sequence
Applied warp stabilzer
Layered with copy of itself, offset 1 frame and set to 50% opacity and screen blending mode.
Repeat the duplicate and offset technique and set second copy to 25% opacity.
Is this abstract… yep. But I kinda like it.
