The Quadrant Video Shoot – HDR timelapse experiments with CHDK

In Uncategorized on May 16, 2011 by Admin Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

These are some fragments from a HDR timelapse shoot at The Quadrant, a serviced office space in Sheffield, UK. Below are some short examples of HDR timelapse video created with Canon PowerShot cameras “hacked” with the Canon Hack Development Kit (CHDK), an open-source software program. The HDR is achieved by shooting 3 exposures for each shot, one normal exposure, one +2 EV and one -2 EV. The results are post-processed with Photomatix into tone-compressed jpegs, the result of which is to produce an image with a much greater colour depth. These are then compiled into movies using QuickTime Pro. The result is a moving image that can accommodate a very high dynamic range without losing either the highlights or the shadows. It’s very processing-intensive but the results are impressive and produced with domestic-scale equipment (and a lot of patience).

Watch them in 720p HD on Vimeo or YouTube and stay tuned for a proper edit. Music by Sieben aka Matt Howden.

The Candy Cane Quadrant, Sheffield, UK – Where even the fire escapes are beautiful.

I am currently shooting a promotional video for The Quadrant, a serviced office space in Sheffield, UK, for CVC Event Services. It’s great to have so much access to a building like this and I was there on and off over the Bank Holiday weekend. I’m sure the tenants were glad of the holiday, but I had a great time shooting the building in such beautiful weather with no-one there.

I stumbled upon Gateway Plaza in Barnsley, UK, a new mixed use development of residential and commercial space. This images is derived from a triple exposure and post-processed with Photomatix, Photoshop and Topaz Adjust, although it seems to have lost some colour depth once uploaded to WordPress.

I did the Lyke Wake Walk in 1983 with a friend. We saw a cloud inversion off Carlton Bank, North Yorkshire, UK and neither of us had a camera. I’ve waited 27 years for this. These days I rarely go anywhere without at least 3 cameras. Sometimes a lot more. More photos at Flickr.

It was created using a Canon Powershot digital still camera and CHDK software.
