Over the last few months I have been facinated with time lapse photography, not just for the beauty of the video, but for the construction detail that can be seen from viewing a site in operation over a few months, watching plant move and operatives work, its a good way to learn , but some of these timelapse videos are one step above the norm, in that the foacal point seems to move as the video progresses, and I often wondered how this was achived, several landscape videos I have mentioned recently have this effect.

Well now I can reveal how its done with this excelent video from a guy called Milapse at Dynamic perseption the link here is to his Vimeo site, and he has several great videos to explain the way and how, ok its not cheap as the kit costs about $900, plus obviously a decent camera, but for the serious timew lapse video maker it might just be the next step for you. The kit described in the video can be obtained from the Dynamic Perception site which also has a link to the video tutorials.

Again This style of Video is so useful for Tutors teaching site management, and also for detailing, setting up a time lapse camera to record a wall or flashing being installed, or perhaps a glass facade being erected, is great CPD. But for the Technologist who is into this, it makes a great item on your CV, looking at video production for client  presentations.
