Time lapse: The Efront office setup

February 4th, 2011 by Raj

Last March the guys I work for, Efront, moved in to a new office space in the Melbourne CBD. It was the perfect opportunity to try out some time-lapse work, which I’d been interested in but never really had a good subject to try it on.

Setting up my Canon 450D with a 12-24mm wide angle lens in the corner of the room, it was attached to my MacBook Pro running Canon’s EOS utility software that would fire the camera every 6 seconds. The camera also had a mains powered attachment that meant I didn’t have to worry about it running out of juice. At the time I didn’t have a neutral density filter so exposure times where quite short, ideally having a neutral density filter on would give the illusion of movement more by blurring people slightly.

9000 photos later they’re stitched together at 25fps using Quicktime 7 (*So* much better than Quicktime X) and exported out to add some fade in/outs and a soundtrack.

    If you watch carefully, you can clearly see that Darren was working the hardest here. Seriously though, I do love seeing men at work.
