Shooting Time Lapse with Strobes by Jay P. Morgan “The Slanted Lens”

What would you do if 1.) you love shooting time-lapse and 2.) you don’t want to go outside to shoot and 3.) you have a giant studio with nice and expensive equipment? You set things up right inside your studio to shoot the time-lapse. In this video, we look at creating time-lapse using strobes as the light source. There are several problems that can cause timelapse to not work very well when using strobe equipment. This video looks at those problems and shows the solutions to creating good time-lapse using strobes as the light source. Normally, in a time-lapse video, the camera is the piece of equipment that’s moving on a crane of a shuttle pod. This time, Jay P. Morgan utilized the shuttle pod to move the strobe to make it look like the moon. Cool idea.

I’m not sure what he meant by “light flutter” with the aperture at the end, not gonna lie. Very nice trick, though. Does it still happen if you shoot in all manual mode, or when you have a higher end lens?
