My First Picnic

Stuck indoors on a wet Monday afternoon I decided it was time to try out my camera's remote timer and put together this short time-lapse film of me and Fergus playing in his nursery.

With the camera perched precariously (you can actually see it slip out of position early on in the film) high up in a corner of the room I set the timer to take a shot every ten seconds.

The resulting one hundred and sixty-two shots make up this mini epic that records us playing happily until the sun came out and we could venture outside again.

As a first attempt at time-lapse photography I'm pretty pleased with the results but next time I'll need a more secure way of positioning the camera (my main tripod is way too big) and more consistent lighting and focussing.
