Test Cress

Posted by barnoid Sun, 15 Apr 2012 12:43:23 GMT

This is a test for a longer time-lapse I plan to make of cress germinating and growing. It consists of 902 photos taken every minute over 15 hours. It’s shot in a cupboard in a cardboard box lined with a white sheet and lit with a 20W daylight-coloured compact florescent light. I used a Canon EOS 40D with a Canon 50mm f1.8 lens with a +3 close-up filter which doesn’t fit the lens thread but does fit when kind of jammed in the front. This allows it to focus to about 8cm, but with very little depth of field (the aperture was on f8). I made the photos into a movie with ffmpeg.
