21st September saw our first speaker of this session. Paul Richardson, whose work can be admired on YouTube, has been involved in time-lapse for some time, working professionally in the field for the last four years. He came all the way from Manchester to spread the time-lapse gospel to an eager Bradford PS audience.

And we were not disappointed. His clear explanation of the principles and demonstration that the effects can be achieved with the minimum of specialist equipment will surely inspire many of us to give it a try. There was a nice display of his more elaborate kit for the technically-inclined to drool over too, of course.

However, watching the results of his efforts, it is clear that a huge amount of concentration, hard work and artistic talent is needed to reach the highest pinnacles of the art. The carefully sychronised dramatic sound track is a key element in achieving the impressive impact - more hours of post-processing!

These stills from his on-line time-lapse projects do not do justice to the originals.

Paul is certainly in the top flight of his speciality with commissions from major clients like Land Rover & Marriott International. His latest project will take four years to complete!

An inspiring evening from a fluent and expert speaker.
