4.4.2013. – Waiting for the spring sun on the ice at Yyteri ( location on map ). It took almost two hours to shoot this timelapse. The idea was to have a human figure on the scene with a sort of animated movement. Since there was no volunteers, I had to be the puppet.
Basically everytime I heard the camera shutter sound, I moved myself a bit. The final timelapse would be rendered as 25 frames per second video. Interval between frames when shooting was four seconds. In a nutshell, every second in the finalized timelapse was about 1,5 minutes in real life. I can only imagine what passers-by thought when they saw me trying to imitate movement in slow-motion. And as you can see from the timelapse, I wasn’t slow enough.
