Burrow Hill is a location I know very well and I’ve photographed here many times including from the air.
On this occasion I wanted to re visit for my video project Somerset Uncovered.
We have recently had a spell of very settled warm weather but clear blue skies are not what was required for this shoot.
A few days ago my careful watch on the weather forecast promised another hot day but with cloud moving in later in the evening which sounded perfect for the shoot.
I already knew where the sun would be positioned for my composition so it was just a case of planning my timings.
One of the things I dislike about Time-lapse is that some objects like to much foreground foliage can move rather quickly.This can not only be distracting but also ruin the tranquility and graceful pace of the skies and light that sometimes dances across the landscape.
Therefore careful composition to avoid these elements or clever post production is required. Unlike shooting stills and retouching in Photoshop this can be a lot more trickier when working with moving elements but I do love a challenge!
