Time Lapse Photography Setup for Audi Fashion Festival

by on May.19, 2010, under photography

The organisers wanted to document the whole process of the Audi Fashion Festival from the setup to the teardown of the week long event.

This video shows how the setup is done.

My neighbour had a cracked UV filter that was stuck to his lens one day and we started the video rolling as I attempted to remove it.

The solution is to use a rubberized surface to provide grip on the ridges in the front of the filter.
