This was the third video I took but the only one, so far, with panning. I still like the final result but it took too much effort to create. In order to get the panning effect, I turned my camera on its tripod a little bit, snapped a photo, and then repeated. It took about five minutes to take 114 photos. I’m intrigued by the possibility of camera motion but other videographers get a smoother effect by using a motorized telescope mount (such as this one); something I’ll consider once I have $200-$300 to spend on time lapse.
This video was shot at the Embarcadero in San Francisco.
