Cyber’s PetSmart Pickup

March 2, 2009

(Click to watch the video on YouTube)

A rare snow, a timelapse photography session, and a PetSmart grooming date collided and the attached video was created. The video was shot using a Canon PowerShot G9 sitting on the dash attached to a POD Camera Bean Bag tripod. The resulting video was brought into iMovie ’09 and put together with the audio. The G9 was set to timelapse video mode, shooting at 1 second intervals, with the ND filter turned on for the longest exposure possible.

Gear Used:

Timelapse Photography Tips:

  • Use a tripod or support to keep the shooting perspective steady.
  • Set a manual white balance so the camera does not change from shot-to-shot.
  • Set a manual exposure to keep the camera from adapting to changing light.
  • Drag the shutter – use a longer shutter speed to blur the motion from shot-to-shot to prevent “blips” of new subjects entering the frame.
