Reflected Clouds ~ Newport Center

By: Allan Heller ~ March 8, 2018

OC Coastal Properties just added a new tool to their inventory. It is a high megapixel DSLR with all the latest bells, whistles and a 19mm, f/4 Perspective Correction lens specifically for architecture photography.

So, we decided to try out the video capability recently in the Newport Center office complex in Newport Beach. It was a windy day with fast moving clouds which I thought would play nicely on one of the mostly glass reflective buildings located on the North side of the Newport Center campus.

After fiddling my way through all the buttons, knobs and settings, I was able to capture the above time lapse movie of the passing clouds. The movie was taken over a 28 minute period with one photograph taken each second. The exposure for each image in the sequence was 1/1000 sec, ISO 400, f/7.1 using the electronic shutter so that there would be no motion blur in the image. The movie can be played back in the following resolutions: 4K(2160p), HD(1080p), HD(720p).

This exercise was in anticipation of taking a time lapse movie of a Newport Beach oceanfront home demolition which one of my clients is having done in the process of building a new oceanfront home. If the movie turns out well, it will also be posted to this blog.
