I have downloaded on my IPod this new app that makes my IPod take photos at a set time interval and then makes a video clip out of it. The name of the app is Lapse It.
I tried it out on Thursday for the first time, and I set it to take photos every 15 seconds.
1 hour and 30 minutes of painting got juiced up in a 20 second clip. The resulting video was pretty bad, you can barely see anything that is going on. But It was a good learning experience.
Some things I learned making this first time clip:
- I have to find a way to get a better view of the canvas. Unfortunately I don't have shelving behind me, so I have to be creative finding something that can support my IPod.
- The light is on the way! I did dot realize how much the light was in the picture, and it blinds the camera.
- 15 seconds is too long, next time I'll have smaller intervals of time between photos.
Incidentally I was painting the small painting that I did not like, so maybe knowing I was "on camera" made me somehow nervous. ;)
