Please have a look at these amazing time-lapse videos:
I just don't get how they do it. I am a fairly experienced photographer, however, I do not have a lot of experience with time lapse shots. Nevertheless I understand the basic principles of how to avoid flicker. But in videos like this, some real advanced stuff is going on. Just some points to illustrate what I am talking about. It seems that all effects except the growth, are shown in real time. Like for instance movements of the plant, and its surroundings, and the lighting.
There is this thing called wind. So if you shoot with a fixed interval, to capture the motion of a growing plant, the plant should be in a different position each time right? How is this not the case?
One day you will have direct sunlight, the next it will be completely cloudy. This results in a different distribution of light, which cannot be resolved purely by controlling the exposure?
Are these kind of timelapses even created on a photo camera? Or do they use video equipment?
Any insights into this time lapse magic will be appreciated. I am really interested in some more information and experiences. Can anyone recommend a good source of information on this topic?
