Portrait sketch in oils - Youtube demo

Pin It
An artist friend of mine on recently told me she would love to see how I painted.
So, I promised her to do a timelapse recording of  a painting session.
Of course, this turned out to be a lot harder to set up than I anticipated but after a lot of experimenting I found a setup that worked.
I've used my iPhone on a tripod with the Lapse-it Pro App. The good thing is that you can change a lot of the settings, like the recorded resolution, interval between captures and you can lock the focus, exposure and white balance so the movie doesn't flicker so much.

I love Pedro!! I could watch you do it over and over the process..ALTHOUGH, a little slower would have made me even happier!! Wonderful portrait, Erik!!

Thank you Hilda, and thanks for the feedback about the speed. It was the first experiment and I didn't know how much memory the captures would take.
So next time I'll take more pictures so playback will be slower and smoother.
Best wishes, erik
