This timelapse was shot at Nerima Gardens on a couple of weekends recently.  We have had so much wet weather that photography opportunities have been limited, but I overcame this by shooting 2 of the 3 sequences in this timelapse from undercover.

The first sequence is shot from underneath a bridge, the second shows reflections in the lake (shot on a brighter day), and the third is shot from the Japanese teahouse.

Music is “Prelude No. 16” by Chris Zabriskie (http://chriszabriskie.com).  This is the first time that I have used music in a timelapse; I think it really enhances it, so thanks to Chris and other talented people who make their work available for free.

This video was complied from 1085 RAW still photos using Lightroom 4.  (There is one ‘dud’ frame rendered in there, but I am too impatient to wait another 6 hours or so to re-render and re-upload it!).  The in-sequence movement and deflickering is done with the assistance of LR Timelapse, which basically tells Lightroom what to do using metadata, which is a LOT faster than me doing it manually!

Settings: LR4, using 12fps 720p @24 LRTPro preset.

Hope you enjoy it. http://vimeo.com/lightswimming/nerima-timelapse
