9 Months And 50,000 Photos = Mesmerizing Time Lapse Of Opening Flowers
Most timelapses show us the beauty of big things that span time: Sunrises, Sunsets, boats being built and building erected. Photographer David de los Santos Gil shows us the beauty in small scale time lapse as he shot 11 flowers slowly opening up.
David shot 11 flowers in his home setup: gladioli, lillium, hibiscus, carnations, orchids, dandelions, lilies, daisies, to lstroemerias , peonies and nigella damask. While the setup is simple – couple of light bulbs and some foil against a black fabric, shot with a discontinued HS30EXR Fuji– making a good sequence was not trivial. David faced issues ranging from flowers that won’t open, through flowers that moved out of focus to flowers leaving the frame.
Results are well worth the 9 months and 50,000 images.
