I'm sure this is somewhere in the annals of this forum...I just couldn't find it.


Anyways, I am looking to shoot a time lapse of the sun rising over the city tomorrow morning using a Bolex and Plus-X reversal film. I thought that maybe exposing for three or four frames every minute for one hour would do the trick. Any suggestions? Also, how should I set my aperture? Should I just keep metering the the light as the sun rises and adjust the F-stop accordingly, or should I set the stop to what I think it would be once the sun rises and let the image come into the correct exposure? I know that reversal doesn't have much latitude, so I want to get this right.

Any help on this today would be awesome!

I wanted to answer you but then i remembered Ron Dexter has an article about time lapses on his site.

I'd still suggest you to use one stop through the entire time lapse, at least for your first test. Have fun and maybe post your results (with all informations about it if you can!)
