Candle, candle, burning bright
Recently I was excited to get a new camera card for my photo kit, allowing me to take longer and longer timelapse shots. This is evolving into a larger project based on small studies I’ve been doing around the house. The first in this series is the candle.
Test 1 was done using the candle’s own light, with shots taking place at 2 second intervals.
Test 2 was done with ambient light, with shots taking place at 5 second intervals.
When Thomas Edison worked late into the night on the electric light, he had to do it by gas lamp or candle. I’m sure it made the work seem that much more urgent.
