On Location with The Time Lapse Nuts: Episode 001 Sydney’s Circular Quay

What’s the best way of learning anything is by doing right? So I’m here out on the field or location to share my knowledge as a time lapse photographer. What better ways than to show case my beautiful city during the golden hour.

I only come out when there’s good light. And the best light is what sunrise or sunset. That few hours of the day that’s the best time to photograph anything really. I just bought a Panasonic GH4 on the same day as well.

First few shots with the GH4

Yes I haven’t show you guys any new footages that I have. My old work horse had died on me last year the Panasonic G7. So here I am with the new camera straight out of the box, went to Starbucks to charged the battery and walked along the main road of Sydney’s George Street to capture this iconic photos for you guys.

Imagine this is just a virtual tour of Sydney Harbour for you. I know some of you cannot travel, we all cannot travel freely right now. So I’m doing a tour for you guys and I expect in return from you in your city or town once the lockdown is over.

My first impression of the GH4? It’s a best bang for your bucks right now in any camera system. I know it’s an old camera but for what it does for the money you and I pay for it right now you can’t go wrong with this purchased. There’s no buyer remorse from me that’s for sure with this purchased.

Enjoy and sorry for the portrait orientation of some of the videos. I was using a smart phone to captured this footages for you guys. It’s a vlogging camera right. But I’ll improve over time with it so hang in there with me.

I'm a freelance makeup artist from Sydney, Australia. If you hang around creative people long enough you well get the bug to create as well. So now I am into photography, timelapse photography and maybe video/film later.
