I desire to celebrate the photography section of my website, by publishing a time-lapse video of a sunset. Well, actually it is a series made of … how many videos about sunsets? You will discover it in the next posts!
Sunsets and time-lapse
The following is a sort of introduction, before starting with the true series. It looks like and old video, recorded 6 months ago during a sunset, but let me explain something more. During winter 2015 I had fun creating some movies that transmit feelings while you admire the gorgeous sunset. Wonderful colors and fascinating clouds. I love sunsets! Time-lapse technique is very good-looking and it shows how colors change. It is easy to apply time-lapse effect, since a long video is recorded and then reproduced at high speed. Plus, the search and addition of an appropriate soundtrack is the cherry on top. I am not a professional movie director, but I am satisfied with the results.
Equipment: Canon EOS 1100D, Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM to capture the entire sky during sunset and a tripod. I suggest to point at an open area where a great portion of sky is visible, but even introducing silhouettes, buildings or other details in the scene could generate a nice effect! Clear sky shows different shades of colors while clouds introduce a 3D good-looking view.
Now I want to share these emotions with you. Have fun!
If you enjoy it, please share it on social networks to show it to your friends, it will help me continuing with new ideas to share with you. Let me know in the comments what you think about this video of a sunset!
