View Full Version : Time Lapse

12-Sep-2011, 12:59
This is my first attempt at time lapse photography using my kids as subjects.


Hopefully I uploaded it correctly. Music is Cherryholmes 'Sumatra' song.

I used my Canon Rebel 300D with a 28mm-80mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. I tried to keep the lens at 28mm and f/3.5 but it kept refocusing.

I was thinking of getting a fixed/prime lens to use for these. Any suggestions? Was looking into the 35mm f2 and the 24mm f2.8 .... just to have a wider angle view and a faster lens .... since my kids are quite mobile. :p What do you all recommend?

Hope you enjoy. :)

I think you're on the wrong forum. This is about Large Format Photography, mostly film, not small format digital!

Cute, but I think that this would be a better fit on flickr.com. You might also try using manual focus, as that might be why you're getting that slight zoom effect.

Didn't realize the forum content when posting .... just saw 'photography' in the title. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks for your help. :)
