Black-and-White, Time-Lapsed HDR Video: Wow.

Recommended Videos

Photographer Andrew Rees shot this remarkable HDR [high dynamic range] video in Cardiff, Wales with a Sony A700. If you’re photographically inclined, he’s shared the details of his method with Photography Bay:

I aim to keep the exposure at around 1.5-3 seconds, this allows me to capture movement of people but not the detail. I do this using a Hahnel Giga T pro wireless remote. With this remote I can set exposures, delays and intervals.

Once I have the shot set up and balanced the exposure, I set the camera in Jpeg so I can store thousands of shots instead of hundreds then set my remote firing and wait……. and wait…….

Typically I am to get at least 700 shots, this will allow me to create a 70 second video if I use 10 frames per second in quicktime. Some of my longer videos have over 3-4 thousand shots which resulted in massive file sizes and huge processing times.

Beautiful work; as Giz observes, it has an artist’s sketchpad quality to it.
