Time Lapse Photography In HDR Way
Time lapse is one of the most challenging area in photography. When time lapse and HDR techniques are mixed together the process becomes very complex. But photographer Tanguy Louvigny used HDR technique to create one of the most interesting Time Lapse video. The first time we watch the video we are very surprised because there is no ‘flickering’ occurs due to rapid changes in lighting between the video frames.
This video was created by Tanguy Louvigny on Canon 400D and 60D digital SLR cameras along with a Sigma 10-20 mm lens. Louvigny hand made a 3 axis motion control rig to control the slow movement of the camera. The HDR photo sets were tone-mapped with Photomatix (see below). The post-processed photo sets were edited into the video using Adobe Premiere & After Effects CS5. And I think Louvigny also personally composed the music for this video using a Roland mc-808 Sampling Groovebox.
He created a custom motion rig for this project. It is based on Tetrix Robotics (tetrixrobotics.com), interestingly enough controlled by mindstorms brick – a division of LEGO (mindstorms.lego.com), and programmed in Robot C (robotc.net). Check out his project setting photos.
