Possible interesting experiment/idea
TTF members do a great job of documenting changes on park, especially construction of new rides or attractions. While this is a good source of information, it's not always easy to follow the construction process from beginning to end when photos are focussed on different points. Something that I found interesting after The Swarm's construction was watching the time-lapse video where you could clearly see what went up when from a good viewpoint.
Now for one person to go to AT on a frequent regular basis to take construction photos in this way is both expensive and completely unreasonable. However, there seems to be someone
from TTF there most days, and we all have cameras, even if it's just a phone.
We could agree a spot (or several spots) in X-Sector with a good view of the Black Hole tent area to take pictures from. That way, all photos will be from the same angle. They can be posted onto the forum and at the end they could be collated to form our own time-lapse-esque montage.
I wouldn't mind sorting the images if people want to send them to me (might keep the forums clearer actually) and I could edit them to fit together. I'm not certain this would definitely work. There's lots of variation cameras e.g colour, contrast, focal length etc but I'm quite adept at colour correction and so-forth in Lightroom so I could try to work round it. I accept that it won't be flawless, image quality will differ and there will be gaps when no one is on park for a while, but I don't think that really matters.
Is this something you would like to see? We can discuss what the best angles would be and I could make a topic with simple guidelines for where to point the camera with a small map of our agreed photo points.
It could well turn out that AT make their own time-lapse for SW7, I doubt they're starting from the very beginning though, i.e. now. We could tailor this to focus on areas we want to see change.
Win or Fail?
